Amplifier Masterclass

Assuring RF power amplifiers‘ high performance You must confirm that your new design meets the target criteria before releasing it to the market. It’s a difficult and time-consuming operation to verify the physical performance of active components like RF power and RF frontends. Continuous-wave testing for intermodulation or port impedance is commonly performed with a vector network analyzer functioning as a one-box RF frontend (RFFE) tester. Wideband testing for modulation performance and effects, on the other hand, often necessitates the use of a vector signal generator and a signal analyzer.
