A Sub 1 W Load-pull Quarter-wave Prematching Network Based on a Two-tier TRL Calibration

A vector network analyzer error-correction characterization technique based on a two-tier calibration using 7 mm and microstrip thru-reflect-line (TRL) calibrations
A Sub 1 W Load-pull Quarter-wave Prematching Network Based on a Two-tier TRL Calibration Transistors used for cellular and PCS infrastructure applications are required to amplify signals with a peak-to-average ratio that can exceed 13 dB, resulting in a peak envelope power (PEP) approaching 1 kW. This PEP requirement...
