5G VectorStar Modulated Measurements with Chalmers University Software
Demonstration of 5G power amplifier measurements under modulated conditions using the VectorStar VNA. Instantaneous receiver bandwidth of up to 200 MHz utilizing the Nonlinear Transmission Line sampler and high speed IF digitizer option provides the opportunity to evaluate device and amplifier characteristics under 5G conditions.
Using Chalmers University software, the interface provides a display of ACPR, adjacent channel intermodulation, and AM/AM characteristics. The unique ability of VectorStar to perform Modulated S Parameter measurements up to 70 GHz provides the capability for the first time to analyze device and component performance under real world conditions including future 5G networks.
