This paper presents a wideband supply-modulated system with a floating ground RF power amplifier and a reverse buck topology DC/DC converter. The power amplifier and the reverse buck converter are based on microwave GaN technology. The system is operating at 1620 MHz and 40 V supply and shows 39% overall power-added efficiency at an average output power of(More)
An 80 W balanced GaN-HEMT power amplifier for 2.45-2.70 GHz using branch-line couplers is presented in this paper. Its performance is compared to a single-transistor solution. The analysis shows that a balanced amplifier is favorable because it simplifies measures to ensure electrical stability and allows better heat sinking.
