In this white paper, ERZIA will focus on the Adjacent Channel Power Ratio (ACPR) method which measures amplifier behavior under a specific modulated input signal, which gives a clear indication of amplifier performance for a given application. We then compare this with classical RF parameters of the amplifier.
The line up of ERZIA suspended substrate filters provide low insertion losses, sharp edges and high out of band rejections in small form factors in microwave (mw) and millimeter (mm) wave frequency ranges.
A discussion of noise figure measurements includes a wide number of options, instrumentation, and techniques each with their own advantages and limitations. In this tech brief, we focus on non-cryogenic applications, with proven performance, that can be conducted with standard laboratory equipment and easily followed by trained personnel.
