AbstractThis paper summarizes results that have been achieved with various types of microwave solid state power amplifying devices and presents some projections of advances that can be expected within approximately a five year period. The frequency band surveyed extends from 1 to 100 GHz. The emphasis is on CW or high duty cycle pulse applications, where long life is of great importance, such as in a satellite communication system. The types of devices considered include the gallium arsenide field-effect transistor (GaAs FET), IMPATT diodes, bipolar transistors, Gunn diodes, TRAPATT diodes and electron bombarded semiconductor (EBS) devices. An overview of the technology of microwave power combiners is also included.
