Resum
This work aims at showing a new approach for determining the efficiency of linear class A RF power amplifiers by means of non-invasive, steady-state thermal monitoring. The theoretical basis of the technique is indicated and its suitability in a real case application scenario is presented. More in detail, silicon surface thermal monitoring is performed with built-in sensors and infrared measurements on an RF power amplifier. The first monitoring circuit consists of differential sensors, which ca...
