Radio frequency or RF power amplifier is a sort of electronic/digital amplifier which converts a lower power radio-frequency signal into a higher power radio-frequency signal. RF amplifier is the core parts of all base stations for cellular & mobile wireless infrastructure. It can tune over the preferred range of input frequencies. It is widely used in driving high power sources for instance a transmitting antenna, weather sensing and in microwave heating.
