Pages: 340
ISBN: 9781630819453

This book gives you – in one comprehensive and practical resource -- everything you need to successfully design modern and sophisticated power amplifiers at mmWave frequencies. The book provides an in-depth treatment of the design methodology for MMIC power amplifiers, then brings you step by step through the various phases of design, from the selection of technology and preliminary architecture considerations, to the effective design of the matching circuits and conversion of electrical-to-electromagnetic models. Detailed figures and numerous practical applications are included to help you gain valuable insights into these technologies and learn to identify the best path to a successful design. You’ll be guided through a range of new mmWave power applications that show particular promise to support new 5G systems, while mastering the use of GaN technology that continues to dominate the power mmWave applications due to its high power, gain, and efficiency. This is a valuable resource for power amplifier design engineers, technicians, industry R&D staff, and anyone getting into the area of power MMICs who wants to learn how to design at mmWave frequencies.

  • Edmar Camargo

    received his master and Ph.D. degrees from University of São Paulo, Brazil, in 1976 and 1985, respectively. Within this time he took a leave of absence to work at the Centre National d'Études des Telecommunications (CNET) in Lannion France in 1977 and 1982. He was a teacher assistant and research engineer in the same university in Brazil, until 1993 when he emigrated to the U.S. He worked for Hewlett-Packard on mmWave Transceiver design and for Fujitsu Compound Semiconductor Inc., where he took the lead on frequency converter project. From 2000 to 2004 was director of engineering at Fujitsu coordinating the mm-Wave and handset developments. From 2005 to 2009 worked at iTerra Communication, Watkins Johnson Communications on power amplifiers for infrastructure applications and at RF Micro Devices on power amplifiers for handsets. From 2009 to 2012 was a MMIC design consultant, and in 2013 became a Principal engineer at Quinstar Technology in Torrance, California. He retired from QuinStar in 2017 and has since been working as a consultant. Edmar Camargo is a senior member of the IEEE-MTT Society, served on the technical program review committee from 1996 to 2008 and from 2015 to 2017. He also served as a member of the MTT-22 Signal Generation and Frequency Conversion and is currently Chapter of the MTT in Coastal Los Angeles Chapter. He and his wife, Marcia, reside in Lomita, California, have two sons, Marcel and Regis and three granddaughters, Maeve, Chloe and Nia.
