Abstract : This report summarizes the procedures and results of a study made of transistor amplifiers for possible use in phased-array radar applications. Various commercially-available types of transistors were investigated, with particular emphasis on their gain-bandwidth product and noise figure. Using the most promising of these as a basis, a method was devised for designing the optimum circuit. This method, employing a Linvill Chart, is described in the report. (Author)
