Analysis and modeling of high power microwave modules

Yapıcı, A. Çağrı
A microwave module supplying up-to 1 Watt output power at 2.4-2.5 GHz frequency band was investigated. First the module was operated at low power levels and the output power was predicted using the small signal S-parameters of the module. A method was developed to obtain its large signal model using Advanced Design System (ADS) simulator̕s nonlinear analyses facilities. Later using the large signal model of the module simulations carried out to obtain larger powers up-to 1 Watt. The implementation of the module was performed using the SMD components on a microstrip substrate and the characteristics of the module were compared to the ones obtained using simulation results.
