Abstract : In this paper, we investigate an alternate test strategy for RF integrated circuits based on DC measurements. A methodology to select the appropriate DC parameters is presented, that allows precise estimation of the DUT performances while minimizing the number of measurements to be carried out. The method is demonstrated both on simulation test data from a Low-Noise Amplifier (LNA) and production test data from a Power Amplifier (PA). Results indicate that good prediction of the RF performances can be achieved using only a reduced number of DC measurements.
