RFIC PA Development for Communication and Radar Systems

An RFIC Power amplifier (PA) based on GaS or GaAn technologies can be hard to design, so too can added CMOS or SiC technologies increase difficulty.

Working with RFIC power amplifiers is difficult for the myriad of concurrent design elements that they affect, transmission line voltage, signal interference, and impedance to name a few. Utilizing RF transformers for proper transmitter-receiver impedance balance, or working within particular frameworks like GaS, GaAn, CMOS or SiC technologies, can all add difficulty to your systems design. Thankfully having the option to design with RF systems tools that not only accommodate but fully enable their engineers is available.
