Based on Nitronex's existing NPT25015 power transistor, the design provides 6W of linear output power from 2.5 to 2.7-GHz while achieving >35% efficiency, 10dB gain, and <2.0% EVM with digital pre-distortion.
Typical performance numbers were taken using a mobile WiMAX waveform defined as a single carrier OFDMA 64-QAM ¾ with a 10MHz channel bandwidth. 6 Watts of output power is achieved with a 9.5dB PAR @ .01% probability on the CCDF during the transmit portion of a 50% duty cycle TTD signal.
