I am doing a project that converts rf power to dc power. Currently i am looking at the possible simulation software to study various voltage doubler designs and is pondering whether pspice or ads should be a more appriopate software for use.

I am using a MCU and a GSM module in my project. MCU consumes 250mA (max), GSM module consumes 400mA(average) and while transmitting RF signals consume 2A (peak).
And also MCU consumes 1mA, GSM module consumes 1,5mA while IDLE mode.
I have searched for ultra low quiescent current DC-DC converters, find some possible ICs that is useful for me.

Usually, DC-DC converters are not recommended for RF systems, LDOs are used instead. I think, for PIC controller it's ok to use step down converter, so long you follow board specifications.

Choke is a term used in RF for
inductors that inhibit the flow of
high frequency or transient to or
from power supply. Usually is very
small(phisically), so I doubt you can
use for high currents as in regulators.

GaAs is the most suitable for a linear and efficient RF power amplifier. But in the same time is the most expensive process.
Most of the WCDMA PA?s on the market still use a standard linear amplification, and sometimes using adaptive bias or a DC/DC converter on Vcc to improuve the efficiency at low power.

linear amp is for increasing your rf signals amplitude. but logamps mainly used for detecting power level, ie it gives you a dc output for different levels of rf input as it is shown in fig.9 in the datasheet. you can transfer this dc to an adc later to an fpga, etc. or you can use dc level with opamps to build your AGC(automatic gain control) circ

There are some method to measure the I/Q unbalance.
1) You can use a Netwrok analyzer. In this case you have to enter not in the two ports, but after the generator (usually is possible in the main network). So you can measure the unbalance (phase and amplitude).
2)If the frequency is under 2.7 GHz you can use the AD8302 RF/IF gain and phase det

RF Impedance and DC Resistance are two very different things, as stated above. To prove this, just take a DC ohmeter and hook it across an audio speaker that you have lying around. Even though the speaker says it is "8 ohms", or somthing similar, the ohmeter will read something like 0.3 ohms!
The AC impedance is not the same as the DC resistan
