Abstract--The generation of RF/microwave power is required
not only in wireless communications, but also in applications such
as jamming, imaging, RF heating, and miniature dc/dc converters.
Each application has its own unique requirements for frequency,
bandwidth, load, power, efficiency, linearity, and cost. RF power is
generated by a wide variety of techniques, implementations, and
active devices. Power amplifiers are incorporated into transmit-
ters in a similarly wide variety of architectures, including linear,
Kahn, envelope tracking, outphasing, and Doherty. Linearity can
be improved through techniques such as feedback, feedforward,
and predistortion.
