Title: Load-Pull Based Design Flows for High Power Amplifiers
Date: November 17, 2020
Time: 12:00pm PT / 3:00pm ET
Presented by: Christian Bean, Senior Principal Application Engineer, Cadence
This presentation showcases the advanced load-pull technology in the Cadence® AWR Design Environment® platform for high-power amplifier (HPA) designers who must meet aggressive performance targets in short design cycle windows. Measurement techniques for load pull, source pull, harmonic load pull, and baseband load pull will be discussed. Specific new features in the latest release of the software for PA design will also be highlighted, including data management enhancements, ease-of-use improvements, as well as automated matching network synthesis, which integrates seamlessly with load-pull measurements to ensure that the best possible PA performance is achieved.
