dc.description.abstractThere is continuing emphasis to reduce the size and weight of telemetry transmitters and to increase the frequency at which the power is generated. An approach to achieve this goal is discussed. A power amplifier stage designed specifically for a telemetry transmitter is described. It produces 1 watt output at 500 MHz with 7-10 db of gain. Typically it is midpoint in a series of similar amplifier stages. An extraordinarily small size is achieved by using microstrip transmission lines on an alumina substrate. The dielectric constant of alumina is relatively high; which makes the transmission lines relatively short. Furthermore, the judicious use of lumped capacitors results in a further foreshortening of the transmission lines. The transistor die is attached directly to the microstrip transmission line. This minimizes any stray inductances and makes the circuit reproducible and broadband. This amplifier is composed of three basic component types: 1) a transistor 2) four microstrip transmission lines, and 3) three lumped capacitors. Of special importance is the fact that the entire amplifier, that is, the transistor plus the matching network, is enclosed inside a hermetic envelope. The terminals are 50 ohm microstrip input and output. The hermetic envelope is less than 1.100" x .830" x .085". Complete with a heat sink the unit is no higher than .150". Useful design information for this type of amplifier is presented.
