When confronted with an unknown Radio Frequency (RF) amplifier, a few simple measurements can be used to form an idea of its operating characteristics. In this video, Silas Gibbs of Duotech shows how a source and signal analyzer can be used to find amplifier gain and compression characteristics. Duotech uses this type of characterization to aid in repair and testing of undocumented components.
