Power amplifiers are used in a variety of applications to increase the power level of a signal. Many communications systems, particularly wireless communication systems, use power amplifiers to amplify the signal before it is transmitted. Wireless communication signals received by antennas are often very weak. Power amplifiers are widely used in wireless transmission systems to increase the signal strength of the received wireless signal. Radio frequency (RF) power amplifiers are used as components in many communication devices, including many wireless communication devices, such as base stations and mobile devices such as cell phones. For example, a power amplifier may be used as the final gain stage in the transmitter of a mobile handset terminal (e.g., a mobile phone). Power amplifier electronics are commonly required in satellites for various servo control systems such as piezoelectric actuators for imaging applications. The two primary functions of RF power amplifier design are linearity over the range of power operation and efficiency. Linearity is simply the ability to amplify without distortion while efficiency is the ability to convert DC to RF energy with minimal wasted power and heat generation. Typical power amplifier technologies utilize multiple integrated circuits in order to provide functionality for amplification, power output control and for stabilization of the power amplifier output signal level due to supply voltage and temperature fluctuations. There're two types of power amplifiers existing for handling different types of transmission signals. Multi-carrier power amplifiers (MCPAs) are used in amplifier modules designed to handle wideband signals. MCPAs are used to amplify signals containing multiple carriers. Single carrier power amplifiers (SCPAs) are limited to amplifying signals containing essentially only one carrier frequency.
