Today’s modern communications systems require amplifiers that meet a high level of performance over much broader frequency spectrums. This creates certain technical challenges that require design engineers to balance performance across the band.

This presentation will describe how thermal considerations can set performance thresholds for amplifiers, why broadband designs are difficult, and a methodical design flow to achieve a balanced performance across the target band.

Attendees will learn:

  • The challenges inherent in broadband amplifier design
  • How thermals can be used to set specifications
  • A systematic approach to broadband amplifier design
  • What enables successful broadband designs
