The study was conducted to compare the RF parameters of Pulsed Solid State Power Amplifier using Drain Modulation and Gate Modulation and thereby to analyze the impact of modulations on the pulsed performance. [...] Key Method To establish this, the C-band Pulsed SSPA is designed, fabricated and tested at 5.35GHz frequency with 225 MHz bandwidth using two different methods of modulation techniques, implemented on Electronic Power Conditioner.Expand
