This application note describes VSWR stress testing of the NPTB00050 device operated at P3dB and being subjected to 10:1 and 20:1 VSWR conditions.

Previous qualification of Nitronex transistors involved stressing devices with 10:1 VSWR mismatch, however, in order to meet more stringent customer requirements characterization has been extended to a higher mismatch condition of 20:1.
