Abstract

We report on the design of a temperature-compensated power amplifier module which can generate 20Watt output power with 34dB gain at 14GHz. This module is made of one commercial microwave monolithic integrated circuit and three discrete power transistors. Allowing gate biases of these power transistors to be automatically adjusted with ambient temperature, output power of the module can now be more steadily reaching stabilization. Details regarding the microwave power amplifier and the DC biasing circuit will be presented in this paper.
