Two peak curve on S22 when measure return loss - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Good day everybody,

currently, i doing PA evaluation board measurement. i just wanna to know why on the return loss of S22 have 2 peak curve occur? is it because there have 2 resonane circuit on the board? if yes, where is that 2 resonance circuit forming on the board?

(on output of this board's circuit diagram, there have 2 capacitor placed in parallel.(one is act as DC bolck and another one is short to ground.). And so have some capacitive decoupling circuit)

Thanks

Hi :

I am not very sure about your question. But I assumed that it's kinda valley on yout S22 measurement. First, the S22 will go much lower at your operating frequency which means it has the best return loss in the operating frequency.

Regarding 2nd valleys appearance, I guess it most likely the resonance frequency appears. It can be caused by the capacitive coupling somewhere in the circuit. I am not very sure about this either. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Cheers,
Jean

Is your PA enclosed in a metal housing? Could there be cavity modes?
