A small-sized three-stage GaAs power module has been developed for portable digital radios using M-16QAM modulation. This module has exhibited typical P1dB of 10 W with PAE of 48% and a power gain of 35 dB at a low supply voltage of 6.5 V in 1.453-1.477 GHz band. The volume of the module is only 1.5 cc, which is one of the smallest value in 10 W class modules ever reported. In order to realize the reduced size and the high power performances simultaneously, the module has employed new power divider/combiner circuits with significant features of the reduced occupation area, the improved isolation properties and the function of second-harmonic control.
