This application note will focus on the often overlooked issue of mismatch in RF systems, the harmful effects of even a modest amount of mismatch and finally, how proper selection of the system amplifier can mitigate the ill effects of mismatch. Functioning as a key element in an EMC susceptibility system, the RF amplifier must be capable of dealing with extreme mismatches without compromising performance or reliability.
