This paper presents a mathematical model for the basic physics involved in fast sparkgap switches. The model considers the time dependent breakdown process for the gas under consideration. Parameters include the applied electric field, the gas pressure and electron elastic and inelastic collision frequencies. The model is applied to published test results(More)
A multistage GaAs FET power amplifier, employing cascaded balanced stages using state-of-the-art 1/4, 1/2, and 1 watt devices, has been developed. A linear gain of 30 dB with 1.25 watts output has been achieved over a 17.7 to 19.4 GHz frequency band. The development and performance of the amplifier and its components are discussed.
