This talk provides the various trade offs involved in the decision to include linearization in the design of microwave and millimeter-wave power amplifiers. Emphasis will be placed on efficiently producing linear power over very wide (multi-GHz and octave) bandwidths and at frequencies to 100 GHz and above. The latest developments in power amplifier technology, including millimeter-wave GaN devices will be considered. The application of linearization to linear photonic transmission systems will also be considered.
