How to use supercapacitor for temporary high power demand?

Hello,

 

I'm currently working on a project which need to amplify RF signal a lot.

I'm looking for a power architecture I could use to charge a supercapacitor with the main power source and, let's say once every minutes, use the power stored in the supercap to power a RF amplifier for a couple of seconds. I could probably need almost 1 A of current for this short period of time.

Most supercap driver I saw seems to be designed to be used as backup power sources. Is there an IC which could serve my purpose better than building a solution based on tricking the sensing inputs of one of these backup manager?

 

Thank you for reading.
