RF/Microwave EDA Software Design Flow Considerations For PA MMIC Design

A systems perspective on power amplifier (PA) design.


In this white paper, a gallium arsenide (GaAs) pseudomorphic high-electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) power amplifier (PA) design approach is examined from a systems perspective. It highlights the design flow and its essential features for most PA design projects by illustrating a simple Class A GaAs pHEMT monolithic microwave IC (MMIC) PA design using Cadence AWR Microwave Office circuit design software. The paper begins with the concepts of design closure and then describes parametric design as key concepts to understanding each step of the PA design process.
