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,

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!
