RF K-factor Calculator | RF stability factor Calculator
This page covers RF K-factor calculator. The formula/equation for this RF K-factor calculator is also mentioned. The K-factor is known as stability factor of RF Amplifier.
EXAMPLE of RF K-factor calculator:
INPUTS: S11(magnitude,angle)= (0.2552, 156.2o) ;
S22(magnitude,angle)= (0.1544, -95.3o);
S12(magnitude,angle)= (0.0994, 41.5o);
S21(magnitude,angle)= (5.636, 53.1o);
OUTPUT: RF Amplifier K-factor (Stability factor) = 1.0618
Formula or Equation for RF Amplifier K-factor (Stability Factor)
K-factor is calculated from all the S-parameters viz. S11, S12, S21 and S22. It represents stability of the RF amplifiers. When K-factor > 1 while Delta < 1, the RF amplifier is said to be unconditionally stable for any load. Refer amplifier stability conditions>>.
