Analysis and design of dual stage balanced amplifier

An X-band design using NE4210S01 's scattering parameters, the input and output matching networks were designed to create four Maximum Gain Amplifiers which are combined with four 90 Degree hybrid couplers, designed using Microstrip Line Technology, to finally create Dual Stage Balanced Amplifier. It is designed to have maximum gain with better stability and input/output return loss also known as voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) than a single Maximum Gain Amplifier. Microwave Office 2007 is used for simulations.
