Simplifying A Radiated Immunity Test Set Up

The RF Test engineer is used to the idea of building their own feedback control system around the standard RF amplifier with a typical setup consisting of external dual directional coupler, power sensors, power meter, signal generator, with a PC running either their own custom code or heavily invested in customized Matlab or Labview coding. Besides this approach being a very slow feedback control loop, the cost of the system engineering and coding is high which results in a costly and lengthy development program.

At IMS 2017 in Honolulu, Empower RF's CEO talks briefly about this topic and how a Smart amplifier can simplify your system hardware and software development.
