Practical RF Amplifier Design and Performance Optimization with SPICE and Load- and Source-pull Techniques

Authors: Banerjee, Amal

Free Preview
  • Describes methods for designing and evaluating/optimizing the performance characteristics of an RF amplifier that circumvent the issues involved with existing, traditional methods and don’t require expensive, high-end software tools
  • Includes C language executables for each RF amplifier type, eliminating errors that might creep in while computing passive component (capacitor, inductor, resistor) values for a given RF amplifier type
  • Demonstrates industry-standard load- and source-pull schemes that can be included easily in text SPICE netlists, allowing accurate calculation of impedance matching and impedance values at the input and output ports of the test RF amplifier, eliminating messy, error-prone S parameter based calculations

About this book

This book explains and demonstrates with an exhaustive set of design examples, how common types of radio frequency(RF) amplifiers (classes A, B, AB, C, D, E, F, G and H) can be designed, and then have their performance characteristics evaluated and optimized with SPICE.  The author demonstrates the transient analysis features of SPICE, along with industry-standard load- and source-pull techniques to simulate the steady-state, long-term time-domain behavior of any test RF amplifier.·         Describes methods for designing and evaluating/optimizing the performance characteristics of an RF amplifier that circumvent the issues involved with existing, traditional methods and don’t require expensive, high-end software tools;·         Includes C language executables for each RF amplifier type, eliminating errors that might creep in while computing passive component (capacitor, inductor, resistor) values for a given RF amplifier type;·         Demonstrates industry-standard load- and source-pull schemes that can be included easily in text SPICE netlists, allowing accurate calculation of impedance matching and impedance values at the input and output ports of the test RF amplifier, eliminating messy, error-prone S parameter based calculations.  

About the authors

Amal Banerjee had his high school and a small part of his college education in Kolkata India.  He then got admitted to the University of Texas at Austin Texas, USA, where he completed his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Physics(with highest honors), and then transferred to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the same University where he completed a MSE(Master of Science in Engineering) and all his course work for a PhD. During his stay in the USA,  he has worked as consulting engineer at a number of high technology companies as Silicon Laboratories  (www.silabs.com) , SMC Networks(www.smc.com) , VI Technology (www.vitechnology.com),  Object Reservoir Inc., Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation, Austin Texas(MCC) etc.,  He has also worked as a Research Associate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Berkeley California and Brookhaven National Laboratories, Islip  New York. He is now the Engineering Manager at Analog Electronics.
