Microwave Power Amplifier Design and Fabrication

This course discusses the in-depth design of microwave power amplifiers that address the ever-present need for high output power, linearity and efficiency. Upon course completion students are able to make system design decisions (e.g., class of operation, topology, technology—Si, GaAs, GaN) based on performance objectives, realize detailed designs using industry standard CAD tools, perform electromagnetic simulations, fabrication, as well as linear and non-linear measurements of various microwave power amplifiers.
