Efficient X-band switched-mode microwave power amplifiers


The problem addressed in this paper is reduction of heat dissipation and improvement of dc power usage by increasing the power added efficiency (PAE) and drain efficiency (/spl eta/) of X-band power amplifiers (PAs) to above 60% and 70%, respectively. Adaptive PAs with dynamic biasing and impedance tuning are also discussed.
