Starting from the mathematical bases of waveform engineering, this contribution demonstrates the effectiveness of class-F power amplifier design in different bias conditions, provided the correct harmonic content is presented at the input. To validate the theoretical assumptions, low-frequency multi-harmonic load-pull measurements are carried out on a 1-mm gate periphery GaN HEMT, giving an experimental proof of the validity of the extended harmonic manipulation approach.

Abstract

Starting from the mathematical bases of waveform engineering, this contribution demonstrates the effectiveness of class-F power amplifier design in different bias conditions, provided the correct harmonic content is presented at the input. To validate the theoretical assumptions, low-frequency multi-harmonic load-pull measurements are carried out on a 1-mm gate periphery GaN HEMT, giving an experimental proof of the validity of the extended harmonic manipulation approach.
