This presentation will focus on Agilent's Nonlinear Vector Network Analyzer (NVNA) measurement capability as well as the application of X-parameters for the design and analysis of active components. The NVNA enables active device designers to accurately measure and model nonlinear device characteristics providing measurements such as calibrated amplitude, cross-frequency phase of frequency spectrum, vector corrected time domain waveforms, X-parameters, and pulse multi-envelope domain for analysis of long term memory effects.

Duration: One hour

Who should view this Webcast:
Customers who are working on active components, such as amplifiers, who need to accurately characterize and/or model the component behavior over a wide range of large signal operating conditions.
