ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations


This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries. For more information or questions about this collection contact or visit the Digital Repository ETD Library Guide or contact the ASU Graduate College at gradformat@asu.edu.


This work covers the design and implementation of a Parallel Doherty RF Power Amplifier in a GaN HEMT process for medium power macro-cell (16W) base station applications. This work improves the key parameters of a Doherty Power Amplifier including the peak and back-off efficiency, operational instantaneous bandwidth and output power by proposing a Parallel Doherty amplifier architecture. As there is a progression in the wireless communication systems from the first generation to the future 5G systems, there is ever increasing demand for higher data rates which means signals with higher peak-to-average power ratios (PAPR). The present modulation schemes require PAPRs …
