PA - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

am new in microwave power amplifiers.
I can build the system
using couple of tranistors , capacity and inductors .
is how we can find the transistor model that we need to use .
how we can find the system layout using ADS
please answer at

For choosing transistors for RF PA, you need to consider the
specifications of the PA, such as how much gain are you needed, how
much power and linearity to be achieved. and whether it's single-stage
or multi-stages PA?
For example, at multi-stages PA, usually
we use high-impedance transistor at first stage and low impedance transistor
at last stage. The high impedance gives us lower input reflection with
simpler input and interstage matching networks .
While the high
impedance at the last stage (output side) will give us some room for
power matching at the end.
and also , you may consider the gain
you need, and check the GMax of the transistors, and see whether it
is possible to achive certain gain.
If you could provide me more
details, I might be able to help you.
Hope it helps,

thanks alot for answering my request .and
sory for not responding earlier n that time
in fact my problem is
when designing the PA , i needed to choose a model for my FET transistors
(am using ADS software), and i don't have one.so do u need any place
were i can telecharge the library that i will need .

You can visit some transistor supplier for more
infor: advanced power technologies RF, macom or philip...
can find more info by talking to their application engineers....good
luck to you
