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...

AMPLIFIER_200_400MHz - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 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. If the folks at phpBB would release a version with integrated sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums, but until then it is probably not worth the effort. 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.

I want to make about following parameters amplifier :
G 40dB
P1dB 44dBm
gangs 200-400MHz
Class AB

I need relating information:
- the influence of temperature on parameters the VDMOS, LDMOS.
- the selection of transistors (what firm ???)
- on what was one should be careful,

I found the solution firms polyfet, motorola, philips, macom.
Are yet some firm ??

thanks for information

Hello jarys,

The vendors you mentioned are the right ones. You should carefully check for the right device. Most of the vendors provide an application circuit for each device. The most important part of a PA circuit are the matching networks in the input and output. These networks also are designed for the required BW of operation. Your BW is octave, which is very wideband. So you should carefully examine this issue.
You should also pay attention to the bias feesing circuit. There should be a good isolation between the the RF output and the DC supply, and the bias level should be adjusted to provide the required linearity and output power level.

Good luck!
