Power efficient and highly integrated power amplifiers

Reference number
Coordinator AQUILTO AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration October 2017 - February 2018
Status Completed
Venture Innovative Startups

Purpose and goal

Circuit topologies for highly integrated and efficient power amplifiers have been developed in silicon technologies, which provides better performance and efficiency compared with existing GaAs based products. These circuit topologies is now the basis for the development of competitive products for various wireless applications. The results have been verified by key customers, who also appreciates the high degree of integration which is possible with silicon technologies.

Expected results and effects

The circuit topologies which have been developed will be possible to patent and will therefore be the basis for new competitive products which can be produced at lower cost and with lower environmental impact compared with existing products. When these new products have been developed and introduced on the market, the underlying technology can be applied in a variety of products used in wireless applications. The developed technology can therefore be the basis for a new Swedish high-tech company.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been carried out in project form with own development expertise in close cooperation with one consultancy company with unique domain competence. Simulation tools and models of the chosen silicon technology have been used through out the design work to verify the performance of the new circuit topologies. Cooperation with key customers and one production partner have been established. A datasheet for the product has been prepared and shared with key customers, whom have provided valuable feedback.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
