[0002] At present, the development of wireless communication greatly satisfies the requirements of people on communication, and those requirements further drive wireless communication terminals to fast increase all over the world. A radio power amplifier is a necessary function module in the wireless communication terminal, and has a main effect of amplifying the emission power of the communication terminal so as to still maintain a sufficient signal intensity when a signal reaches a base station, so that the lowest signal-to-noise ratio required for communication is realized, and the signal sending and receiving operation of a whole communication link is completed.

[0003] In a wireless communication system, the main direct current power consumption is from a radio frequency power amplifier, and the operating time of the system can be obviously prolonged by reducing the power consumption of the radio frequency power amplifier. On the other hand, the integral performance of a radio frequency circuit is directly determined by the performance of the radio frequency power amplifier. In addition, the design of the radio frequency power amplifier generally requires stable gain and output power.

[0004] However, in realization of the radio frequency power amplifier, due to the influence of factors such as process deviation and temperature variation, the gain and the output power of the radio frequency power amplifier vary in a large range. Meanwhile, by considering that the amplitude of an input signal is influenced by the process deviation and the temperature variation, the variation of the input signal can cause the output power of the radio frequency power amplifier to vary in a larger range. Therefore, feedback control needs to be performed on the quiescent operating current and the output power of the radio frequency power amplifier, so that the operating state variation of the radio frequency power amplifier caused by process variation is inhibited, the influence of variation of the input signal on the operating state of the radio frequency power amplifier can be reduced, so that the radio frequency power amplifier operates in a state in which the gain and the output power are stable.

The detection feedback circuit includes at least one current detection feedback circuit, or the detection feedback circuit includes at least one current detection feedback circuit and power detection feedback circuit. Each current detection feedback circuit and power detection feedback circuit are respectively connected to the multiple stages of amplifier circuits, wherein when a quiescent operating current of an input end of a current stage of amplifier circuit increases or decreases for certain reasons (such as production process variation), the gain of the radio frequency power amplifier correspondingly increases or decreases. At the moment, the current detection feedback circuit connected to the current stage of amplifier circuit detects and copies the quiescent operating current of the input end of the current stage of amplifier circuit, the quiescent operating current accordingly increases or decreases, the control voltage generated by the current detection feedback circuit according to the increased or decreased quiescent operating current correspondingly decreases or increases, and the decreased or increased control voltage enables a current output by the current detection feedback circuit to decrease or increase.

At the moment, the output power, detected by the power detection feedback circuit connected to a certain stage of amplifier circuit, of the certain stage of amplifier circuit prior to the current stage of amplifier circuit accordingly increases or decreases, a corresponding current is generated according to the output power, and at the same time, corresponding control voltage is generated according to the current. The power detection feedback circuit correspondingly decreases or increases the control voltage, so that a current output by the power detection feedback circuit correspondingly decreases or increases. The current output by the power detection feedback circuit can be input into multiple input ends of a certain stage of amplifier circuit and at least one stage of amplifier circuit located prior to the certain stage of amplifier circuit, so that quiescent operating currents of the multiple input ends of the certain stage of amplifier circuit and the at least one stage of amplifier circuit located prior to the certain stage of amplifier circuit correspondingly decrease or increase, and the gain and output power of the certain stage of amplifier circuit and the at least one stage of amplifier circuit located prior to the certain stage of amplifier circuit correspondingly decrease or increase, so that the problem of gain and output power increase or decrease of the radio frequency power amplifier caused by an increase or decrease in the output power of the certain stage of amplifier circuit can be solved, thereby effectively inhibiting the operating state variation of the radio frequency power amplifier caused by the process variation, and reducing the influence on the operating state of the radio frequency power amplifier caused by variation of an input signal, so that the radio frequency power amplifier operates in a state in which the gain and the output power are stable.

An emitter of the transistor 101 is grounded. An inductor 102, serving as a load of the first stage of amplifier circuit, is connected between a collector of the transistor 101 and a power supply voltage. The output power of the first stage of amplifier circuit respectively enters bases of a transistor 105a, a transistorl05b and a transistor 105c of a second stage of amplifier circuit through the collector of the transistor 101 and a capacitor 103a, a capacitor 103b and a capacitor 103c. Emitters of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c of the second stage of amplifier circuit are jointly grounded. An inductor 106 is used as a load of the second stage of amplifier circuit. One end of the inductor 106 is connected to the power supply voltage, and the other end of the inductor 106 is respectively connected to collectors of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c. The output power of the second stage of amplifier circuit is transmitted to the output end to be output through the direct current blocking capacitor after passing through the collectors of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c.

[0031] A first bias circuit includes a transistor 110, a resistor 107, a diode 108 and a diode 109. A collector of the transistor 110 is respectively connected to a bias voltage Vbias and one end of the resistor 107. The other end of the resistor 107 is respectively connected to a base of the transistor 110 and an anode of the triode 108. A cathode of the diode 108 is connected to an anode of the diode 109. A cathode of the diode 109 is grounded. An emitter of the transistor 110 is correspondingly connected to bases of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c respectively through a resistor 104a, a resistor 104b and a resistor 104c. The bias voltage is provided for the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c of the second stage of amplifier circuit through the first bias circuit.

[0032] The current detection feedback circuit includes a first transistor 111, a second transistor 115, a first resistor 112, a second resistor 113, a third resistor 114 and a fourth resistor 116. A base of the first transistor 111 is respectively connected to the resistor 104a, the resistor 104b and the resistor 104c through the first resistor 112, and the first bias circuit also provides the bias voltage for the first transistor 111. The first transistor 111, the second transistor 115, the second resistor and the third resistor form a first feedback circuit, and the first resistor forms a first detection circuit. An emitter of the first transistor 111 is grounded. The second resistor 113 and the third resistor 114 are correspondingly arranged among the collector of the first transistor 111, the power supply voltage and the base of the second transistor 115. The collector of the second transistor 115 is connected to the power supply voltage. The emitter of the second transistor 115 is connected to the base of the transistor 101 through the fourth resistor 116. The first resistor 112 and the first transistor 111 form a mirror image of the resistor 104a, the transistor 104b, the resistor 104c and the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b, the transistor 105c. By designing the proportion of the first resistor 112 to the resistor 104a, the resistor 104b and the resistor 104c and the proportion of the first transistor 111 to the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c, the first transistor 111 can proportionally copy quiescent operating currents of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c. For example, when the quiescent operating currents of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c increase for certain reasons (such as production process variation), the gain of the radio frequency power amplifier correspondingly increases. At the moment, the quiescent operating currents of the transistor 105a, the transistor 105b and the transistor 105c copied on the first transistor 111 of the current detection circuit also correspondingly increase, so that the control voltage on the second resistor 113 connected to the collector of the first transistor 111 increases, the base voltage of the second transistor 115 decreases by means of the third resistor 114, so that a current flowing through the second transistor 115 is controlled to correspondingly decrease, and a current output by the second transistor 115 is input into the base of the transistor 101 of the first stage of amplifier circuit by means of the fourth resistor 116, so that a quiescent operating current of the transistor 101 of the first stage of amplifier circuit decreases. A quiescent operating current of the first stage of amplifier circuit decreases, so that the gain of the radio frequency power amplifier correspondingly decreases; thereby solving the problem of gain increase of the radio frequency power amplifier due to the increase of the quiescent operating current of the second stage of amplifier circuit, and ensuring the total gain constancy of the radio frequency power amplifier.

[0033] In the radio frequency power amplifier provided by the present embodiment, the current detection feedback circuit detects a quiescent operating current of the second stage of amplifier circuit through the first resistor 112 (the first detection circuit), copies the quiescent operating current through the first transistor 111, and then feeds back the result to the second resistor 113 through the collector of the first transistor 111, the second resistor 113 generates the corresponding control voltage according to the quiescent operating current, a current flowing through the second transistor 115 is controlled by means of the third resistor 114, different currents flowing through the second transistor 115 are input into the first stage of amplifier circuit by means of the fourth resistor 116, thereby controlling the quiescent operating current of the first stage of amplifier circuit, and ensuring the radio frequency power amplifier to operate in a state in which the gain is stable.

Embodiment 2



[0034] As shown in Fig. 2, the radio frequency power amplifier provided by the present embodiment includes two stages of amplifier circuits, a first bias circuit, a current detection feedback circuit and a power detection feedback circuit, wherein in the two stages of amplifier circuits, a first stage of amplifier circuit includes a transistor 201 and an inductor 202; a second stage of amplifier circuit includes a transistor 205a, a transistor 205b, a transistor 205c and an inductor 206; the first bias circuit includes a transistor 210, a resistor 207, a diode 208 and a diode 209; the structures of the first stage of amplifier circuit, the second stage of amplifier circuit and the first bias circuit are identical to those in Embodiment 1, and are not repeated herein. Similarly, the output power of the first stage of amplifier circuit respectively enters the bases of the transistor 205a, the transistor 205b and the transistor 205c of the second stage of amplifier circuit through a collector of the transistor 201, a capacitor 203a, a capacitor 203b and a capacitor 203c. An emitter of the transistor 210 of the first bias circuit is correspondingly connected to bases of the transistor 205a, the transistor 205b and the transistor 205c respectively through a resistor 204a, a resistor 204b and a resistor 204c, and a bias voltage is provided for the transistor 205a, the transistor 205b and the transistor 205c of the second stage of amplifier circuit.

[0035] In the radio frequency power amplifier provided by the present embodiment, the current detection feedback circuit includes a first transistor 211, a second transistor 215, a resistor 212, a resistor 213, a resistor 214 and a resistor 216. The structure of the current detection feedback circuit provided by the present embodiment is identical to that of the current detection feedback circuit in Embodiment 1, and is not repeated herein. In addition, the first transistor 211, the second transistor 215, the resistor 213 and the resistor 214 form a first feedback circuit, and the resistor 212 forms a first detection circuit. The current detection feedback circuit detects a quiescent operating current of the second stage of amplifier circuit by means of the resistor 212 (forming the first detection circuit), copies the quiescent operating current through the transistor 211, and then feeds back the result to the resistor 213 through the collector of the transistor 211. The resistor 213 generates the corresponding control voltage according to the quiescent operating current, and controls a current flowing through the transistor 215 through the resistor 214. Different currents flowing through the transistor 215 are input into the first stage of amplifier circuit by means of the resistor 216, thereby controlling a quiescent operating current of the first stage of amplifier circuit, and ensuring the radio frequency power amplifier to work in a state in which the gain is stable.

[0036] A first capacitor 218 and a fifth resistor 217 are sequentially connected to the base of the transistor 211 of the current detection feedback circuit provided by the present embodiment to form the power detection feedback circuit. The fifth resistor 217 and the first capacitor 218 are connected in series (the fifth resistor 217 and the first capacitor 218 are connected in series to form a second detection circuit) between the collector of the transistor 201 of the first stage of amplifier circuit and the base of the transistor 211. The output power of the first stage of amplifier circuit is detected through the fifth resistor 217 and the first capacitor 218, and the intensity of the power leaked into the transistor 211 can be controlled. When the radio frequency power amplifier has input power, the output power of the transistor 201 of the first stage of amplifier circuit will be leaked to the base of the transistor 211 by means of the fifth resistor 217 and the first capacitor 218. Therefore, when the output power of the first stage of amplifier circuit increases, the power leaked to the transistor 211 by means of the fifth resistor 217 and the first capacitor 218 also correspondingly increases, so that the operating current of the transistor 211 also correspondingly increases. At the moment, the control voltage on the resistor 213 connected to the collector of the transistor 211 can also increase. The voltage of the base of the transistor 215 decreases through the resistor 214, so that the current flowing through the transistor 215 is controlled to correspondingly decrease. Current output from the transistor 215 is input into the base of the transistor 201 of the first stage of amplifier circuit through the resistor 216, thereby decreasing the quiescent operating current of the transistor 201 of the first stage of amplifier circuit, so that the gain of the first stage of amplifier circuit derceases, and the output power of the first stage of amplifier circuit decreases.
