NI AWR DESIGN ENVIRONMENT: Load-Pull Primer for Optimizing PA Performance

Power amplifier (PA) performance under small- and large-signal operating conditions is contingent upon the output impedance match (load). As a result, PA designers must determine the ideal output load for system-driven amplifier requirements such as output power at a given saturated power (compression point), efficiency, and/or linearity.

Application Note: OTA Test of Millimeter-Wave 5G NR Devices and Systems

Understand how millimeter-wave signals (mmWave) will function in real-world environments. With increasingly shorter wavelengths in the 5G air interface, there are new challenges to test. Learn how to thoroughly test 5G mmWave devices for real-world functionality by reading the "OTA Test for Millimeter-Wave 5G NR Devices and Systems" whitepaper.
