  • Patent number: 10892714
    Abstract: A power amplifier circuit includes a first transistor that amplifies an RF signal; a bias current source that supplies a bias current to a second terminal of the first transistor through a first current path; and an adjustment circuit that adjusts the bias current in accordance with a variable power-supply voltage supplied from a power-supply terminal. The adjustment circuit includes first to third resistors, and an adjustment transistor including a first terminal connected to the power-supply terminal through the first resistor, a second terminal connected to the bias current source through the second resistor, and a third terminal connected to the first current path through the third resistor. When the variable power-supply voltage is not less than a first voltage and not greater than a third voltage, the adjustment circuit increases a current that flows to the power-supply terminal through a second current path as the variable power-supply voltage decreases.

  • Patent number: 10892153
    Abstract: Apparatus (e.g., ion source), systems (e.g., residual gas analyzer), and methods provide extended life and improved analytical stability of mass spectrometers in the presence of contamination gases while achieving substantial preferential ionization of sampled gases over internal background gases. One embodiment is an ion source that includes a gas source, nozzle, electron source, and electrodes. The gas source delivers gas via the nozzle to an evacuated ionization volume and is at a higher pressure than that of the evacuated ionization volume. Gas passing through the nozzle freely expands in an ionization region of the ionization volume. The electron source emits electrons through the expanding gas in the ionization region to ionize at least a portion of the expanding gas. The electrodes create electrical fields for ion flow from the ionization region to a mass filter and are located at distances from the nozzle and oriented to limit their exposure to the gas.
