    This paper evaluates the effect of the phase shift between the two control signals in a dual-input load modulated balanced amplifier (LMBA). While the drain efficiency of the LMBA is not significantly affected by the phase ...
  • Fast simulation method of distributed nonlinearities in surface acoustic wave resonators 

    González Rodríguez, Marta; Collado Gómez, Juan Carlos; Mateu Mateu, Jordi; González Arbesú, José María; Aigner, Robert; Huebner, Sebatian (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference report

    Understanding the mechanism of nonlinearity in SAW/BAW devices is growing up in importance because these, even being weak, can cause desensitization of the receivers and limiting their performance. Proper nonlinear distributed ...
  • Nonlinear performance on acoustic transversal filters 

    Perea Robles, Rafael; Mateu Mateu, Jordi; Collado Gómez, Juan Carlos; Aigner, Robert (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The recently proposed transversal topology for creating acoustic filters allows to achieve arbitrary filter responses, in terms of position of transmission zeros and bandwidth, among others. This new topology might indeed ...
