Experimenting With Open-Source Rf Analysis Tools

Instead of asking an RF design engineer with the software license and experience to run an analysis every time you want to try something out, the team at Knowles Precision Devices have found a number of free open source tools that make great options for non-design engineers to use for experimenting with filters and plotting data.

A Quantitative Analysis Of The Power Advantage Of Hybrid Beamforming

In this white paper, a comparison focused on the power efficiency of analog, digital, and hybrid beamforming architectures is presented. A detailed equation-based model for the power consumption of the three architectures was developed for a receive phased array. There are downsides of going the hybrid route, but those trade-offs are likely to be worth the power savings for many applications.

RF Amplifier Output Voltage, Current, Power, And Impedance Relationship

How much output voltage, current, and power can you expect from your amplifier? In rare cases, this can be answered by applying Ohm’s law, assuming that the net power or power delivered to the load is the rated power output of the amplifier. In most cases, practical issues such as VSWR and forward power concerns must be considered before applying Ohm’s law. This application note addresses this issue and discusses an approach to be used that applies actual test data when calculating output parameters.
