Abstract

This work presents for the first time wideband Large Signal Network Analyzer (LSNA) measurements used to extract a large-signal behavioral model of an RF amplifier. The methodology together with some important issues concerning the data processing is discussed. The procedure is illustrated using an example of a packaged buffer amplifier for wireless applications. We perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of the model's accuracy by means of wideband large-signal measurements and large-signal metrics respectively. Additionally, we compare these results with those obtained by a behavioural model based on narrowband LSNA measurements.
