This article presented a review of the most common load-pull approaches adopted in the measurement and characterization of large-periphery microwave transistor devices. Although the quarterwave transformer technique is simple and very cost-effective, it has serious limitations in terms of scalability, thereby necessitating a separate quarterwave transformer for each device and frequency. Furthermore, due to the limited bandwidth of the quarterwave transformer, its usage in harmonic load-pull applications is severely limited.
