Demystifying 5G - Full Power Frequency Sweep for 5G PA Characterization
5G power amplifiers typically support a power range and a frequency band. It is important to characterize the amplifier for these settings using power and frequency sweep and 5G waveform candidates such as FBMC, UFMC and GFDM. This video demonstrates a power vs. frequency sweep while measuring error vector magnitude (EVM), crest factor, adjacent channel leakage power ratio (ACLR) and other relevant parameters using the R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator and R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz.
The demystifying 5G video series discusses main topics related to 5G including requirements, timeline, potential frequency and waveform candidates.
