We know today that GaN is the foundation of all new Power Amplifier development and design, and that it offers unmatched performance, reliability, and efficiency. The purpose of this white paper is to characterize, in particular, the linearity of Advantech Based GaN SSPAS, when operated either in single carrier mode, or in multi carrier mode. It also includes a comparison with TWTs.
