White Paper: Load-Pull Primer for Optimizing PA Performance

This white paper presents application examples that showcase the load-pull analysis capabilities in NI AWR software for optimizing PA performance, including analysis of simple circuits, matching circuits, and circuit optimization, as well as simulation of wideband high-efficiency PAs, load-pull measurements for base-station PAs, and synchronized source/load-pull analysis.

QFN Socket

Ironwood Electronics introduced a QFN socket design using high performance elastomer capable of 75 GHz, very low inductance and wide temperature applications. The GT-QFN-3024 socket is designed for 10.5x5.5 mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 75 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss. The contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. The socket is mounted on the target PCB with no soldering, and uses very small real estate allowing capacitors/resistors to be placed close by. This socket utilizes clamshell lid with integrated compression mechanism.

VNA: 100 kHz to 40 GHz

The new R&S ZNBT40 from Rohde & Schwarz is the first vector network analyzer (VNA) with a broad frequency range from 100 kHz to 40 GHz and up to 24 integrated test ports. Developers can use it for applications such as measurements on 5G antenna arrays. The multiport architecture is not only advantageous for tests on multiport components, but also for simultaneous testing of multiple DUTs in production to boost throughput. Rohde & Schwarz ensures specified performance on up to 24 test ports with the R&S ZNBT40. Also new is the R&S ZNBT26 for measurements up to 26.5 GHz.

Front-End Solution 

Skyworks introduced the SKY85716-11, a fully-integrated 5 GHz 802.11ac front-end solution that supports connectivity for nominal power applications including access points, routers and gateways. This high performance Wi-Fi product incorporates an SPDT transmit/receive switch, LNA with bypass and a power amplifier. It also includes an enable/disable function that allows for power savings during off mode. Because the SKY85716-11 occupies minimal board space, the solution is ideal for high-stream-count designs, compact devices an emerging wireless mesh networks when combined with modem reference designs.

MM-Wave Amp

The AMM-6702UC is a connectorized millimeter wave amplifier with an ultrawide 20 to 55 GHz bandwidth, over 25 dB gain, and up to +23 dBm saturated output power with only a 0dBm input. This GaAs MMIC amp features a power-efficient design, consuming a mere 570mW. High linearity broadband mmwave mixers such as our MM1-1850S require high power broadband LO driver amplifiers, but these amps were largely absent from the market at frequencies above 40 GHz - until now. The AMM-6702UC's unmatched combination of bandwidth, power and efficiency make this an ideal LO driver amps for SATCOM, radar, 5G, and point-to-point applications.
