A novel technique to co-design a push-pull power amplifier and a wideband omnidirectional antenna has been investigated. The goal was to cover the frequency range from 750 MHz to 3 GHz. A biconical antenna has been simulated in Ansys HFSS and the resulting parameters were exported to AWR Microwave Office, where the remaining part of the co-design was performed. The complete design resulted in simulated values of a total gain of 11+/-1 dB and a PAE of 35% and a maximum output power of 47 dBm. The main focus of the project was to overcome the problems entailed with abandoning the standardised interface. Leaving to common interface required new, non-standardised, methods to conduct simulations.
