This paper proposes new configuration for the dual power amplifier that operates at 5.8 GHz for the wireless LAN and 1.8 GHz for the PCS. It dose not select the input signal but amplify the dual band signals simultaneously. Broadband diplexer is used at the input to separate the dual band signals. Output power of each amplifier is 1 W. The PBG is employed to improve the performance of power amplifier. Generally, the PBG is employed at the end of output matching network. But in this paper, the PBG is employed in the load pull output matching circuit of amplifer to maximize the output power.
