How To Measure 5ns Rise/Fall Time On An RF Pulsed Power Amplifier
By Agilent Technologies
Rise/fall time is one of the key measurement parameters when designing, manufacturing, or maintaining pulsed radar power amplifier systems, especially for wideband pulse power amplifiers. Learn how to achieve 5 nanosecond rise/fall time RF pulse measurement with the 8990B peak power analyzer by reading this application note. This article also includes tips on how to consistently obtain accurate rise/fall time measurement results.
