An Introduction To EMC Amplifiers

In most EMC radiated immunity testing applications, broadband amplifiers are required for generating the necessary field strengths. This paper discusses the role of amplifiers in EMC testing, as well as the parameters and characteristics that have the greatest influence on amplifier performance.

Amplifier Classification A Vs. AB

Class A, B, or AB are commonly used and referred to in specifications for high-power RF and microwave amplifiers. This paper discusses the differences between the different classifications and what they mean with respect to performance.
