Balun Design for a Wide Bandwidth L-Band 200 W PA

This presentation describes the application and design of a printed Balun suitable for L-band (1350-1850 MHz) push-pull power amplifiers. Starting with a simplified ideal model simulation in NI AWR Design Environment, specifically Microwave Office, a 2.5D planar simulation is then conducted using AXIEM. Measured results and techniques for analysing the performance of components with non 50 ohm terminations are discussed. Presented by: Dr. Dominic FitzPatrick, PoweRFul Microwave
