Next Generation of DTV Power Amplifiers - Highest Efficiency, Yet Broadband
COMARK Communications LLC (USA), in collaboration with InnovaRadio SA (Switzerland), is developing the next generation of high-efficiency solid state power amplifiers (SSPA) for DTV and Digital Radio transmitters. This new generation of SSPA's will have the highest energy efficiency presented in the market to date, while maintaining the main advantage of solid state PA's: broadband operation.
"As it's now seen in the mobile telecom industry, a reasonably-priced drain modulation solution -which can handle enough power - will be the future of the power amplifier industry. We are extremely interested in this technology and its near term potential for higher efficiency in solid state broadband amplifier design for DTV transmitters," said Richard Fiore, CEO of COMARK Communications LLC. "Everyone in the market is presenting some sort of high-efficiency solution for DTV transmitters, as it's a crucial requirement in new transmitters to be installed by broadcasters. Every solution has some drawbacks whether in cost, efficiency and/or bandwidth, therefore we believe that it is important to support and work with InnovaRadio to prove this technology."
"In our recently introduced technology we have resolved all the issues of efficiency, wide bandwidth, cost of manufacturing, and easy integration into a PA; now we have a credible solution for medium- and high-power amplifiers," said Mahmud Samandari, CEO of InnovaRadio SA.
"Achieving the same efficiency as narrow-band Doherty for high-power applications, whilst providing better linearity (at pallet level) and much higher bandwidth is a differentiation point of our technology that cannot be ignored," said Amir Farahani, President and Founder of InnovaRadio SA. "This technology can even improve the efficiency of a Doherty PA considerably, if the bandwidth is not an issue for a broadcaster."
