This application note discusses the challenges involved in testing high-power devices. High-power devices are common building blocks in RF and microwave communication systems. Mobile phones, base stations and satellite systems all depend on high-power amplifiers. Characterizing the linear and nonlinear performance of such high-power devices is a critical factor in the design and verification process. Agilent’s NVNA and X-parameters offers a unique solution to this test environment.
