Keywords:wireless communications? satellite systems? network analyzer?

High-power test signal levels are often needed for network analysis of antennas, power amplifiers, and components used for transmitting data in wireless communications and satellite systems. Testing these RF components with high-power signals can be a challenge as they require output power that may be beyond the measurement capability of a standard network analyzer.

This application note will briefly review the basic measurement fundamentals of characterizing devices with high-power signals using a network analyzer. Unique testing techniques and step-by-step test procedures using the Agilent E5072A ENA series network analyzer will be introduced and described in detail.
