In this work, we introduce the design and implementation of wideband microwave amplifiers based on "Normalized Gain Function (NGF)" method. Normalized Gain Function is defined as the ratio of desired shape or frequency response of the gain function of the amplifier to be designed and shape of the transistor forward gain function. Synthesis of input/output matching networks (IMN/OMN) of the amplifier require target gain curves as the functions of normalized gain function to be tracked in two sequential nonlinear optimization processes. A prototype low power amplifier circuit is produced and measured to show the usability of the design approach.
