Abstract

In this contribution, the design and full characterisation of a high efficiency Ultra-Wide-Band power amplifier are presented. The amplifier, based on GaN technology device, has been designed using a CAD oriented broad band matching approach for both input and output networks. The continuous wave measurements results in an average drain efficiency around 50% from 0.8GHz to 4GHz with an output power higher than 32dBm in the overall bandwidth.
