Post subject: parallel feed back resistor Posted: Tue Aug 23, 2005 3:35 am
Can any one explain how do we determine the safe value of parallel feed back resistor being used to level the gain and stabilize the device as well. My concern is the heat dissipation due to Rf energy. I am using it for various RF power out puts eg, 5W,10W etc.

One of the replies you hear a lot on this site is "what are the details of your application". The reason is that there are no totally general formulas or rules for anything - there are always trade-offs that get made differently, depending on the parameters of the situation. Feedback techniques appropriate for LNAs are not necessarily the techniques you'd use for an HPA.

Normally, you don't want to burn up too much power in resistors, regardless of where they are. If it's RF power you're burning up, that's pretty costly stuff!

So the questions are,
1. What frequency range are you talking about?
2. What kind of circuit are you talking about? That's important because if you need to stabilize a circuit, you already have feedback - and you've got to know the nature, amount, and effects of that feedback.
3. Are there any other objectives? Linearity: harmonic distortion, IMD, Third-order intercept, etc. Efficiency?

Good Luck!

2-Single ended, Class A
3-TOI 10dB higher than P1dB
3-P1dB is 5W
4-Biased at 24V,800mA

Kirt Blattenberger,

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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
