A single-ended three-stage MESFET power amplifier designed for high-volume, low-cost applications shows an average of 15-21% power added efficiency in Ka-band with 100-150 mW of power output over 30-35 GHz. Δ<S21 with power saturation, an important parameter in phased array applications, is also reported. Efficiencies as high as 28% were measured on good wafers with high on-wafer repeatability under power drive
