This paper demonstrates, for the first time, a fully functional "real time" large signal characterization system; achieved by successful integration of a large signal multi-tone waveform measurement system with active load-pull based on the envelope load-pull principle. This approach allows for the utilization of slowly modulated signals to provide rapid and improved large signal device characterization capabilities. For example, the power amplifier is a key component in many systems; the… CONTINUE READING
