Using a GaN high power amplifier and a double 4-inputport circular waveguide combiner, a 1kW S-band compact waveguide combiner unit operating at 2.1 GHz was assembled. The maximum power of 200W was realized with a Peltier device for heat sink. The high power amplifier unit shows the PAE of more than 50% with an AB-class operation under the temperature(More)
The multi-stage GaN amplifier with dual output power was explained for the application of microwave communication and power transmission. For the compact transmitter, single-tone and time-division operation is adopted in this study. The maximum output power of 91.8 W and the PAE around 55.4% were obtained at 2.1 GHz in the high power transmitter operation.(More)
In this study, a C band 20 W class GaN high power amplifier (HPA) for microwave power transmission (MPT) to sensor nodes in a spacecraft was designed. The weight of HPA was reduced by use of carbon graphite fixture. Measurement results of the small signal S parameters and large signal input output characteristics was shown. The measured S parameter(More)
This paper demonstrates experimental evaluation results of a wireless sensor network system inside a reusable rocket for health monitoring system. The wireless sensor node is powered by microwave power transmission (MPT) to realize completely wireless, battery-less system. Both the MPT and wireless communication use same frequency, 5.8 GHz. Time division(More)
