The mobile radio communication has begun with Guglielmo Marconi's and Alexander Popov's experiments with ship-to-shore communication in the 1890's. Land mobile radio telephone systems have been used since the Detroit City Police Department installed the first wireless communication system in 1921. Since that time, radio systems have become more and more important for both voice and data communication. The modern mobile communication systems are mainly designed in high frequency ranges due to… Expand
Impedance Matching Network Design for Class C Power Amplifier
This research designed a class C power amplifier that operates in frequency range (200MHz -500MHz) with input power 0.63watt and output power 10watt, and the matching network for input and output is implementing for frequency range because of the wide band frequency range for transistor used.
