This online program has been designed for applications, production, manufacturing engineers and technicians as well as other professionals who need to have a solid background in the fundamentals of working with RF and wireless products. This four part program provides a thorough understanding of RF analytical tools, communications signals, RF devices and test instruments. Starting with basic analytical tools such as the decibel scale, S-parameters and the Smith Chart, this program covers test instrumentation, RF components, and modulation.
This app note describes the techniques that can be used to measure devices requiring a high input signal level. Although the steps listed are specific to the E5072 ENA Network Analyzer, the concepts of using a configurable test set apply to other brands and models as well.
Instructor Earl McCune's presentation from the 2014 IEEE MTT symposium in Phoenix, AZ is available for downloading from the IEEE website. This presentation looks at the problem of providing high efficiency and linearity from a power transistor at the same time.
Wireless voice and data communications have made great improvements, with connectivity now virtually ubiquitous. Users are demanding essentially perfect transmission and reception of voice and data. The infrastructure that supports this wide connectivity and nearly error-free delivery of information is complex, costly, and continually being improved.
