In-package harmonic termination design for improving active device efficiency

Abstract

This paper discusses design of in-package reactances that can optimize efficiency of power amplifier transistors by specific and well-defined harmonic terminations and pre-matching within the device package. The methodology uses a passive fundamental-only load-pull tuner to characterize the transistor. As an example, the method is applied to a 10-W Infineon… (More)
