maximum power - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

can you tell me various design consideration for getting higher power for the power amplifier?

how should i increase the power of amplifier?

One possibility to increase the output power is to match the power amplifier to maximal output power. You have to match the output to the conjugate of the output impedance. This however might come on the expense of other design paramaters like linearity or effieicncy.

You can do Load-Pull measurements. This can be done with a Tuner or by using a CAD tool e.g. ADS. The simulation results are countours of points on the Smith Chart, which correspond to different output power levels. This indicates to which impedance the output has to be matched in order to obtain a certain output power. You can also do paramater sweep: frequency, bias point to see how the output impedance changes and according to that to synthesize the required matching network. In ADS for example, you can get the contours for several paramaters like ACPR, IMD, output power etc, and you can design a matching network to a certain impedance which is a trade-off between several paramaters - the intersection of several countours.

Hope this helps!

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
