Balancing Linearity And Efficiency In A Power Amplifier

Achieving both high linearity and high efficiency together in a Radio Frequency (RF) Power Amplifier (PA) system is challenging. Typical designs for highly efficient PAs involve operating devices in their non-linear range, i.e., at or near compression. This article covers different approaches to balancing linearity and efficiency in a PA. Download the article for more information.
