TIPANTUNA, Christian; ESTRADA, José Antonio; ESTRADA, Juan Carlos  and  PARRA, Carla. Design of a power amplifier for wireless communications using microstrip technology and Microwave Office. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2015, vol.6, n.4, pp.98-112. ISSN 1390-6542.

This paper provides a detailed description and all the procedures involved in designing a power amplifier using microstrip technology and the design software Microwave OfficeTM. Specifically, the design is oriented to build an amplifier with central frequency at 14 GHz, but the same fundamentals and principles could be applied in the whole range of radio frequency. For the design, a MESFET transistor and simultaneous input and output matching networks are considered. The values of the parameters and the simulation for every stage are computed and performed using AWR Microwave OfficeTM. At the end of the document, a fully functional circuit layout represented in 2D and 3D is shown with all their complementary elements.
