Abstract
Intermodulation distortion (IMD) and output intercept point (OIP) behavior due to output power saturation, thermal effects and bias conditions were investigated for AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs pHEMT power amplifiers at Ka-Band frequencies. A power amplifier with a chip size of 3.3 mm2 and a saturated output power of more than 27 dBm from 37 - 41 GHz, and a 3 mm2 high gain compact dual-gate power amplifier with an output power saturation of 27 dBm at 35 GHz were designed. Intermodulation distortion for these two power amplifiers was compared. In order to separate fundamental effects from measurement induced phenomena, the principle accuracy of multi-tone measurement systems that are based on scalar spectrum analyzers was reviewed.
