RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

AM-PM modelling - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi,

Has anyone ever worked on AM-AM and AM-PM modelling? If you refer to the following paper by Saleh, 'Frequency-Independent and Frequency-Dependent Nonlinear Models of TWT Amplifiers', IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS, VOL. COM-29, NO. 11, NOVEMBER 1981, the am-am and am-pm models presented all start from 0. However, my measurements of both am-am and am-pm does not start from zero. Do I need to normalize my result? In that case, how do I normalized my AM-PM result? It seems weird when the y-axis is in terms of phase and the x-axis is in terms of power. Thanks. Love the help u all provide!

If I understand your problem correctly:

AM-PM and AM-AM are for providing relative data and not absolute data. That means that you should not focus on the absolute values which you get but on the phase and amplitude differences as a function of the input power variation. From this you can draw out useful data about the compression charactersitics of the PA and be able to characterize the distortion for designing pre-distortion or other solutions.
