In this contribution, a design, implementation, and experimental results of a highly efficient, multi-octave bandwidth power amplifier (PA) using a 25 W packaged GaN-HEMT are presented. Source/load-pull setup is used to extract the optimum source/load impedances across 1.1 – 2.7 GHz. The harmonics impact is considered to improve the power amplifier… CONTINUE READING
