Over the past two decades, the use of wireless communication has increased dramatically, reaching a total global data usage of several exabytes per month, as of 2015. The transmitters (TX) used in wireless communication systems typically operate at efficiencies in the order of 20–30%, which puts a large strain both on the wireless network...

SiGe bipolar amplifiers are getting more competitive in terms of noise figure to GaAs amplifiers. However, the linearity of these amplifiers is still limited in view of these GaAs implementations. In order to address and overcome these linearity limitations, this thesis report will start demonstrating that the linearity of SiGe bipolar...

Semiconductor power devices have a growing popularity in industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) band applications, such as microwave-heating, drying and plasma generation. A distinguishable property of these applications is the relentless pursuit of reliability, ruggedness, or the ability to withstand a mismatched loading condition without...

Currently the Doherty Power Amplifier (DPA) is replacing the traditional Class B amplifier in base-station and broadcast applications, as such becoming the preferred choice of industry due to its simplicity and high efficiency performance. In spite of its success, so far practical DPA implementations can provide only a very limited RF bandwidth,...

Wireless communication has encountered a tremendous growth over the past few decades. The increased plurality in communication standards, characterized by the use of different operating frequencies and data rates, has translated into very tough specifications for the broadcasting base station power amplifier, in terms of efficiency, bandwidth...

This thesis aims for high power wideband amplifiers suitable for base station instrumentation purposes. A power combing topology is introduced, not only to achieve high power but also good input and output matching. Two kinds of broadband 3-dB quadrature couplers, which are important components in the power combing topology, are designed and...

Communication systems evolve day after day at a very fast pace. People not only have high expectations in regard of the conversation quality, but they also need more data download speeds and better coverage. The industry tries to come and fill in this expectation by developing state-of-the art systems that are cost-effective and that ensure good...

With the rapid growth of wireless communication systems, there is more and more demand for radio frequency power amplifiers (RFPAs) in base stations to be power-efficient so as to reduce the cooling and electrical power cost. Besides the efficient requirement, wide-band working frequency and compact PCB size are also attractive for cutting more...

As the first stage of the amplifier chain aiming for the base station applications, a highly linear low noise amplifier (LNA) dictates very high performance for optimum coverage with a best signal quality. In today’s commercial market, the GaAs enhancement-mode pHEMT based LNA is dominant. However, a SiGe-based LNA, due to its high integration,...

This research work aims to gain understanding of the power amplifier (PA) operating as a linear PA under low power drive conditions and as a switch-mode PA in high power drive conditions both with the same Class-E load. Two approaches were taken here. Firstly, an analytical approach was developed to investigate the switching operation of...

Conventional RF power amplifiers are normally designed for peak efficiency at maximum output power. However, for WCDMA application, the power amplifier often operates at 6-8 dB power back-off. Consequently, when the power is backed-off from its peak point, the efficiency of conventional power amplifier drops sharply. The envelope elimination and...

Frequency up-conversion is an integral part of the (sub)mm wave integrated radar system that is currently developed at the TUDelft in the context of the MEMPIS program. The proposed up-converter IC allows the necessary signal modulation for the radar to be generated at a relative low frequency, after up-conversion to W-band takes place. In our...

UWB-FM is a low-complexity ultra-wideband (UWB) communication system designed for short-range, low- and medium-data-rate wireless applications such as the personal area network (PAN). These applications often require simple, integrated receivers with low power consumption. Most of previous work utilized delay-line demodulators for UWB-FM...
