Introduction To Specifying RF/Microwave Power Amplifiers For EMC Testing

Source: AR

Can you imagine the world without Electronic devices? Today’s electronic gadgets, machines and appliances have become an integral part of our lives. This is most apparent with recent developments in technology like drones, mobile internet, medical devices, Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous vehicles. Historically, amplifier selection for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing was based mainly on tribal knowledge and information scattered across the EMC industry. However, proper EMC amplifier selection is an important step in achieving required RF levels. This application note provides the EMC test engineer or technician with the information necessary to make the proper decision. Download the paper for more information.
