The fast growth in modern wireless communication systems has set in motion a neverending quest for greater capacity and higher data rates in radio access networks. These
demands must be met within the existing radio base stations where cooling capacity
and size are limited. At the same time, operators want to cut their expenses, of which
energy consumption is a significant factor.
Linear radio frequency (RF) power amplifiers (PA) play a major role in terms of energy
consumption and heat dissipation. More efficient base station power amplifiers are thus
a crucial factor in the context of mobile system evolution.
In this conference, basic concepts for high efficiency power amplifier design will be
reviewed, followed by the best known transmitter architectures and their application.
Finally, a brief introduction in different linearization techniques will be given.
