Abstract:
In this article, a design flow is described that uses NI AWR Design Environment platform, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, as well as a measurement technique for determining the input and output impedances of the matching networks, prior to RFPA turn on. Using this approach, excellent agreement between modeled and measured performance is achieved with a first-pass design.
