Testing S-Parameters on Pulsed Radar Power Amplifier Modules

This application note describes testing S-parameters under pulsed conditions with the R&S®ZVA Vector Network Analyzer, and a signal generator with a pulse modulator as a signal source.  A L-band radar pulsed power transistor is used as an example device under test (DUT).  The pulse profile mode of the R&S®ZVA is used to analyze the time-dependent behavior of…
