    • Conclusion ● With an incremental investment on a suitable R&S ZVA or ZVT, it is possible to characterise devices with one single connection ● small-signal behaviour: S-parameters ● large-signal harmonic behaviour under realistic conditions: complete input and output waveforms ● under pulsed DC and RF conditions ● possibly in a non-50 Ohm environment ● The accurate and complete large-signal harmonic measurements enable new insights in component behaviour, resulting in ● better semiconductor technologies ● better models and design kits ● better designs ● faster ways of testing, possibly in non-50 Ohm environments For more information info@nmdg.be www.nmdg.be© NMDG 2010-2011 16
