Amplifiers

Keysight offers design, simulation and test capability for all of your RF and microwave amplifier design and test needs.

Designers of low-noise amplifiers and power amplifiers can use harmonic balance simulation in Advanced Design System (ADS) to characterize gain compression and noise. Keysight Ptolemy simulation and Circuit Envelope simulation can be used to characterize amplifiers with digital modulation signals.

After designing your amplifier and building a prototype, you can utilize Keysight test equipment to verify your designs. Keysight products include Network Analyzers, Spectrum Analyzers, Signal Sources, Oscilloscopes and more, all for your amplifier test requirements.

How to Design an RF Power Amplifier: Class J 
This short video will provide an introduction to Class J Power Amplifiers and demonstrate a superior, time saving methodology to design and practically realize a Class J RF power amplifier. First,a theoretical approach will be used to design an ideal circuit from first principles and then circuit design tools will be utilized to synthesize a more realistic circuit topology from the ideal case. The design process will be illustrated using a commercially available GaN MMIC device from Qorvo.
