As an integral part of many modern applications, pulsed RF amplifiers rely on the consistency of the pulsed RF signal. Pulsed amplifiers should behave as closely to an ideal amplifier as possible with as few spurious signals as possible. These spurious signals may show up as false targets, blurred images, and can appear in adjacent frequency channels. This white paper is meant to assist designers in figuring out how to lower these spurious levels in order to improve system accuracy and reduce any potential negative effects.
