Designing a millimeter-wave PA presents challenges from the extreme miniaturization of millimeter-wave circuits and the need to conserve signal power as much as possible by minimizing forward and reflected signal losses. This white paper examines the design challenges for practical millimeter-wave power amplifiers delivering the necessary power, linearity and efficiency for future 5G networks.
