Stability Analysis of Microwave Circuits

Introduction

STAN is a revolutionary stability analysis technique for microwave circuits, valid for small-signal and large-signal operating conditions. This technique is able to detect and determine the nature of oscillations, such as parametric oscillations in power amplifiers that can be a function of the input drive signal, for example. Knowledge of the type of oscillation facilitates the addition of stabilization networks, with a better balance between the required oscillation avoidance and maintaining the original circuit performances.



Tour IVCAD Software Suite

IVCAD advanced measurement and modeling software, offered by Maury Microwave and AMCAD Engineering supports multiple load pull techniques including traditional load pull using external instrumentation, VNA-based load pull, active load pull and hybrid load pull. It performs DC-IV and pulsed-IV measurements and incorporates device modeling tools. Its modern visualization capabilities give users a greater ability to view, plot and graph measurement data in an intuitive manner.
