Power amplifiers are a crucial part of any RF design. These essential components get the RF signal to the right power level for transmission and strength the receiver needs for recognizing and decoding the signal. Various applications from low noise amplifiers often used at receiver frontends to high power amplifiers used at larger broadcast systems face challenges such as signal distortion, power consumption, and a variety of measurements and reruns.

Rohde & Schwarz solutions support you to verify your design with unmatched RF measurement performance, dynamic low level power consumption analysis, and high test speed.

The Dual Input Doherty

Dual Input Doherty Amplifier architecture enables RF PA designers to maximize efficiency, power, bandwidth and yield without compromising linearizability. Whether it is for 5G, SatCom or any other application demanding high performance and reproducibility, the challenges remain the same: how can you be sure that you are getting the maximum possible performance from the design and how can you evaluate its sensitivities and variations for series production?

Analyzing RF radar pulses with an oscilloscope

Analyzing RF pulses is a key aspect of pulsed radar applications, e.g. in air traffic control (ATC), maritime radar or scientific measurements of the ionosphere. It is essential to analyze the pulse envelope in the time domain because it contains important information needed to characterize the application. The R&S®RTO digital oscilloscope is a very useful measurement instrument for analyzing pulse characteristics.
