Re : Envelope Tracking Improves Supply Efficiency
The objective of envelope tracking is to increase the efficiency of PAs transport high peak to regular power (PAPR) signals. The drive to attain high data quantity within limited scale resources requires the use of direct modulation with extraordinary PAPR.

Cost difference
Sir, as you have mentioned in your blog about Triquint Semiconductor that they have produced first GaN on dimond wafers which improves thermal performance. I am curious to know if that does make difference with the bulk pricing of the part compared to conventional silicon/germanium wafer parts?

When analog engineers get together, the discussion always turns technical with a touch of fun. Laptops open up, schematics are surveyed and discussed, good hearty laughter abounds, and fond reminiscing of analog icons no longer with us brings out old stories and some good memories.
It might seem counterintuitive that an active device solution consumes less power than a passive device. Every design engineer knows that a passive crystal resonator (XTAL) doesn’t draw power, so why use an oscillator in place of an XTAL in a power sensitive application? The answer becomes clear when total system power is considered.
Google is enhancing the IoT with a technology for companies to communicate with customers. The concept: You are in a shopping mall or on a local street and there are hordes of small Bluetooth radios broadcasting marketing messages to all the Android phones in the area (8 of 10 smartphones are Android).
