Abstract

A 9 watt AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs PHEMT MMIC power amplifier for ku band applications is presented. This two-stage amplifier with chip size of 11.12 mm2 (4.52 nun × 2.46 nun) is designed to fully match 50 ohm input and output impedance. With 8 volts and 900 mA DC bias condition, 12 dB small signal gain, 39.5 dBm (9 watt) saturated output power with 30% power-added efficiency from 14 to 14.2 GHz can be achieved. This high power amplifier also achieved the best power densities (809 mW/ mm2) at ku band reported to date.
