that is ultra wide amplifier. I guess you are evaluating the COTS product?
If you design the amplifier chip, you should know how to compensate the gain flatness by using distributed amplifier topology.

i am looking for the books or paper which analyze second order system well.
I expecially want to know about when will the 2nd order system give best phase linearity, best gain flatness, minimum peaking in feedback, settling time.
Some one ever told me there is a paper on that, can any one tell the title?

I do not understand the question.
PAPR is measured in time domain.
PAPR=(max(s))^2/E( (s)^2 )
Spectrum flatness does not depend from PAPR.

I want to design an amplifier inband is 200-400MHz
now the problem is that if I get the gain flatness in 1dB ,
the inband return loss will be poor.
This is due to most transistor has high gain and poor gain flatness at low frequency in a relative wide band.

Frequency multipliers using diodes work fine, but it is very hard to get good output level flatness over frequency. Also the output power in this multipliers changes significantly over temperature, meaning that a lot of circuitry would be need in order to stabilize its output.
If only positive power supply is an issue in your design, FETs would

Of course, printed filter could be used with good insertion loss flatness. If you could afford, try to design with larger bandwidth than your requirement. The flatness of the filter tends to be flatter in small band centering the centre operating frequency.

MRF9045 is an internal pre-matched transistor designed for 930MHz to 960MHz band.
This is the reason that you get poor gain flatness at 1.2GHz.
It is a chance to improve the gain flatness using multiple poles for the external input and output match.

I have same experiance of phenomenon. Of course, I don't know the fabrication situation; structure of filter. I guess you apply inductive iris filter.
The problem is the flatness of surface in body and cover.
Small gap exists in connect plane. And if you fabricate it by CNC, body is twist, maybe.
You must check it.

If only power level 0 has this issue, please check the Tx power in link mode.
Maybe the PA is saturated in high channel.
Please reserve at least 0.5 dB margin for target power.

You need to do some research on the kind of filter you need first. You need to decide on such things as the selectivity, order, passband ripple/flatness, sideband attenuation and other parameters.
Then you can decide on a type of filter such as Butterworth or Chebyshev, and active or passive implementation.

Actually the Gain flatness shouldn't be a problem in a multistage PA because there are more possibilities to adjust the Gain vs Frequency (input, output and interstage match).
For good stability the interstage matching topology plays an important role, as well the bias filtering of each stage.
