Fundamentals of Power Amplifier Testing

Basics of testing RF PAs and FEMs.


The power amplifier (PA) – as either a discrete component or part of an integrated front end module (FEM) – is one of the most integral RF integrated circuits (RFICs) in the modern radio. In this application note, you will learn the basics of testing RF PAs and FEMs through an interactive application note with multiple how-to videos.

When characterizing the performance of an RF PA, engineers can use a wide range of measurements and test techniques to understand the gain, linearity, and efficiency of the device.
