Increasing the saturated output RF power for semiconductor RF amplifiers using a passive technique is an approach that allows using cheap, small size and low power semiconductor RF amplifiers in the circuitry instead of a single high power traveling wave tube TWT. Also it will help us to overcome the heat problems since this method depends on passive components. The measurement results verified that the approach of the technique is indeed functional, and the efficiency was enhanced while increasing the output RF power. A comparison between the saturated RF output power of the (HMC453ST89E) before and after using the passive technique where it shows how the RF power level will increase when using the passive techniques. A clear improvement in the system efficiency, reliability and availability over active very high power amplifiers like TWT. This technique could be applied in transmitters, wireless applications, radars and microwave systems.
