Automated Multidimensional Characterization of Power Amplifier for Design and Production

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Designing, optimizing and producing modern Power Amplifiers (PA) requires new and fast RF (Radio Frequency) measurement techniques capable of characterizing its real behavior. PAs are a truly multidimensional device where many desired performance parameters are contradictory to each other. This is especially true for the generation of modern communication PAs that require high efficiency, high linearity as well as high bandwidth. This paper presents a software-defined measurement setup for fast and cost efficient multidimensional measurements based on highly accurate standard instruments and a PC.
