The complexity requirements of future wireless communication systems now indeed demand a more general theoretically robust design methodology for nonlinear circuits, such as the power amplifiers. The present design methodology for nonlinear Radio Frequency components and circuits has become a key hindrance in the evaluation, development and testing of modern communication systems. The fundamental nature of this engineering challenge makes it highly unlikely to be addressed within the competitive Radio Frequency industry with short-term profitability, time to market and risk aversion considerations.
The book , therefore, includes developing advanced waveform measurement setups, multi-tone measurement techniques, characterization and modelling of nonlinear distortion in microwave power transistors and design of high-power and spectrum-efficient RF power amplifiers for future wireless communication systems. Further enlists the key impediments in Power Amplifier design through the application of waveform engineering to embrace simultaneously efficiency and linearity objectives of power amplifier design as well as investigate the most robust and appropriate behavioral model formulation that includes memory effects.
