Foundations of RF Power Amplifiers
The first talk within this tutorial workshop shall give an overview of the classes of RF power amplifier operation and explain the fundamentals using loadline optimization strategy. The various PA classes and their benefits/disadvantages shall be categorized, and various insights into performance limitations for each PA class shall be detailed. This talk focuses mostly on linear/quasi-linear classes of operation, including class A, AB, C, and their saturated versions.
