Abstract

Large-signal network analyzers (LSNAs) provide direct measurements of the nonlinear behavior of active devices under realistic operating conditions. Large-signal measurements facilitate the extraction of more accurate transistor and power amplifier models. This is a key factor in the development of better communications systems by use of modern modulation schemes. However, the calibration of LSNAs is very challenging. In addition to a conventional linear scattering-parameter calibration, the calibration of an LSNA requires two extra standards: a phase reference (e.g., a comb generator) and a power meter.
