Abstract

Power slumping of a power amplifier (PA) on portable radios is a problem that occurs even with the use of either a Power Sense or Current Sense ALC circuitry. Such power slumping is due to the PA heating up with continuous keying of a radio. A sensing schottky diode circuit is proposed to com- pensate for this drop and thereby alleviate power slumping as such.
