We know today that GaN is the foundation of all new Power Amplifier development and design, and that it offers unmatched performance, reliability, and efficiency. The purpose of this white paper is to characterize, in particular, the linearity of Advantech Based GaN SSPAS, when operated either in single carrier mode, or in multi carrier mode. It also includes a comparison with TWTs.
The Model KMW2000 is an RF power amplifier module for OEM applications or integration into a user system. The module comprises a printed wiring assembly housed in a machined aluminum enclosure with feed-through capacitive terminals for connection to the DC power source.
