Achieve first-time-success designing RF and microwave amplifiers and oscillators using the iterative synthesis techniques provided in this practical resource. The book introduces new approaches to help you estimate the 1dB compression point of class A and class B linear circuits, initialize the fundamental component voltages and currents in a harmonic balance simulator, and more easily generate load-pull contours for class A and class B transistors. Considered as a generalization of the Cripps approach, this independently developed method can be applied easily to control or predict the output power in single- or multi-stage amplifiers. Changes in the transistor's configuration, as well as feedback and loading can also be handled smoothly.
