Today’s management systems must become extremely flexible, reusable, and easily adaptable to various RF amplifier architectures that are tailored to meet a variety of requirements. Their enclosed RF amplifier MMICs are expensive, and as a result, the performance and temperatures of these systems must be monitored in real-time. This white paper discusses techniques for power supply management of GaN MMIC power amplifiers, specifically for pulsed radar systems. Download the full paper for more information.
