by David Vye, Director of Technical Marketing – AWR Group National Instruments MPD: The defense market for RF and microwave components through subsystems appears to be more lucrative than in recent years, especially in the area of electronic warfare. If your company sells into the defense market, what are your thoughts about how it will perform in 2017? […]

Multi-Chip Module Design, Verification and Yield Optimization

by Shane Coffman, Senior Applications Engineer – AWR Group, NI Multi-technology-based module design incorporates different integrated circuit (IC) and printed circuit board (PCB) process technologies implemented with different design tools. To offer smaller devices with optimum performance, it is common for front-end module (FEM) manufacturers to integrate gallium arsenide (GaAs), silicon germanium (SiGe), or radio-frequency […]

A Simulation-Based Flow for Broadband GaN Power Amplifier Design

by National Instruments This application note demonstrates a simulation-based methodology for broadband power amplifier (PA) design using load-line, load-pull, and real-frequency synthesis techniques. The design highlighted in this application note is a Class-F amplifier created using the Qorvo 30W gallium nitride (GaN) high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) T2G6003028-FL. Goals for this design included a minimum […]
