Design and Analysis of Frequency-Tunable Amplifiers using Varactor Diode Topologies

The design of frequency-tunable amplifiers is investigated and the tradeoff between linearity, efficiency and tunability is revealed. Several tunable amplifiers using various varactor diode topologies as tunable devices are designed by using loadpull techniques and their performances are compared. The amplifier using anti-series distortion-free varactor… CONTINUE READING
