NI(formerly AWR Corp. announces that NI AWR Design Environment™ V12’s new load pull features for power amplifier design will be the topic of a paper given by Chris Bean of AWR Group, NI at the Topical Symposium on Power Amplifiers for Wireless Communications being held September 21-22, 2015 in San Diego.

The paper, “Designing with Enhanced Load-Pull Measurements for High Power Amplifiers,” describes how the ability to produce equivalent measurements entirely within EDA software is necessary in order to provide simulated data sets that can be compared to empirical data, enabling circuit simulators to be used not only for data manipulation and circuit design, but for improving the accuracy of nonlinear device models.

The Topical Symposium on Power Amplifiers for Wireless Communications is a forum for the discussion of handset and base station power amplifier concepts and demonstrations, as well as power transistor and integrated circuit development and modeling, nonlinearity modeling and linearization approaches, system requirements and measurement techniques.  For more information and to register to attend this informative symposium, visit
