A highly efficient SiGe differential power amplifier using an envelope-tracking technique for 3GPP LTE applications

Abstract

This paper presents a highly-efficient polar transmitter (TX) system that adopts the envelope-tacking (ET) technique with a differential SiGe power amplifier (PA) for 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) applications. The differential PA was designed using a cascode topology, reaching power-added efficiency (PAE) of 50% at output power of 22dBm in continuous wave… (More)
