Waveform measurement in microwave device characterization: Impact on power amplifiers design

Roberto Quaglia, James Bell, Steve Cripps, Paul Tasker

Resumen


This paper describes an example of a measurement setup enabling waveform measurements duriing the load -pull characterization of a microwave power device. The significante of this measurement feature is highlighted showing how waveform engineering can be exploited to design high efficiency microwave power amplifiers.  


Palabras clave
