Key Considerations for Successful Custom RF Amplifier Design

By Mike Ball / 29 Nov 2021

Triad custom RF amplifier designTriad RF Systems has released a tech brief that outlines a number of factors that are essential to consider when planning the design of a custom RF (radio frequency) amplifier. RF amplifiers are commonly used in UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) and unmanned systems communications to amplify low-power RF signals for transmission over long ranges.

RF amplifier customization may be necessary when COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) amplifiers do not meet design requirements for gain, power, linearity or other specific performance criteria.

The tech brief covers:

  • Common criteria for RF amplifiers
  • Applications that may benefit from custom amplifier design
  • Information that should be supplied to your custom amplifier manufacturer
  • Details of the three stages of a typical custom RF amplifier design process – research/planning, design/simulation/manufacture, and testing/tuning
  • Challenges in the design of RF amplifiers
  • How to select a suitable partner partner for custom RF amplifier creation
