Stant Laurence T., Salter Martin J., Ridler Nick M., Williams Dylan F., Aaen Peter H. (2018) Propagating Measurement Uncertainty to Microwave Amplifier Nonlinear Behavioral Models, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
We propagate for the first time correlated measurement
uncertainties into a nonlinear behavioral model of a
millimeter-wave amplifier. We make use of the National Institute
of Standards and Technology Microwave Uncertainty Framework
to evaluate the uncertainties in large-signal electromagnetic wave
measurements of an amplifier, followed by the extraction of Xparameters
using an industry standard algorithm. This extracted
model is included as a component in a circuit simulator to evaluate
gain and efficiency incorporating measurement uncertainty.
