Solid state power amplifiers (SSPA) are a critical part of many microwave systems. Designing SSPAs with monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMIC) has boosted device performance to much higher levels focused on PA modules. This cutting-edge book offers engineers practical guidance in selecting the best power amplifier module for a particular application and interfacing the selected module with other power amplifier modules in the system. It also explains how to identify and mitigate peripheral issues concerning the PA modules, SSPAs, and microwave systems

Artech House is a subsidiary of Horizon House Publications, Inc., publisher of Microwave Journal.

Artech House operates two full service offices: the main headquarters in suburban Boston, and a European division located in Central London. Both offices offer full publishing capabilities, from sales and distribution, to acquisitions and editorial, to promotion and marketing functions

Hausman, a microwave engineering consultant and professor of engineering, outlines the theory and technology needed to select, integrate, and optimize the design of solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs) using microwave monolithic integrated circuit (MMIC) modules configured on micro strip transmission lines. He explains SSPA applications, configurations, specifications, and documentation used to start the product design; microwave design concepts and microwave theory relating to the design of microwave power amplifiers using MMIC modules; the design of power amplifiers using MMIC modules; and the interface of an SSPA with other system components, including issues with DC power supplies, monitoring circuits, and electromagnetic interference compatibility. -Protoview

Howard Hausman’s Microwave Power Amplifier Design with MMIC Modules provides engineers with ikeys to selecting the best power amplifier modules for different applications, integrating them into systems and troubleshooting common issues involving microwave and PA systems. The basics of SSPA design and evaluation are reviewed in chapters that introduce theories and applications and support them with equations and technical discussions based on real-world issues. -Midwest Book Review
