Large-Size AlGaN/GaN HEMT Large-Signal Electrothermal Characterization and Modeling for Wireless Digital Communications
The rapid growth in high data rate communication systems has introduced new high spectral efficient modulation techniques and standards such as LTE-A (long term evolution-advanced) for 4G (4th generation) systems. These techniques have provided a broader bandwidth but introduced high peak-to-average power ratio (PAR) problem at the high power amplifier (HPA) level of the communication system base transceiver station (BTS). To avoid spectral spreading due to high PAR, stringent requirement on linearity is needed which ...
Development of RF MEMS for Innovative Applications in Microwave Systems
Utilization of RF MEMS tunable capacitors in microwave circuits is rapidly growing up. A low cost and simple production of an RF MEMS tunable capacitor is increasingly demanded. Within this work an RF MEMS tunable capacitor structure with low cost materials and process is successfully developed and characterized. A new process with reduced production time and a less number of fabrication steps by incorporating isolating dielectric materials as part of the top membrane in the RF MEMS capacitor structure is presented. ...
Multi-Frequency Microwave Radiometer for Medical Thermography
Microwave radiometer systems are an entirely non-invasive, non-toxic, avoiding ionizing radiation, and relatively inexpensive detecting modality. The microwave radiometry technique is based on the measurement of natural electromagnetic noise signals emitted by lossy materials. In medicine, microwave radiometry technique offers a non-invasive thermometry method having the potential advantages of monitoring and producing a full map of the temperature deeply inside the human tissues. The method of diagnosing procedures ...
