1000 Threads found on edaboard.com: Measure Differential Voltage Gain
I know I could use Network analyzer to measure power gain (S21) of the LNA. If I want to measure the voltage gain of the LNA, how could I do it? Actually, I am using AC analysis in the simulation to see the voltage gain of the LNA. Is it correct? (...)

Why do you want two opposite signals at both inputs at the same time? This is not the normal working condition of a differential stage. The classical measurement is with one of the inputs grounded (assuming split supply with proper biasing for 0 volts at both inputs).

If the input of the panel meter is always exactly 1V (i.e. it's constant),
That was an example... i mean if it is 10mV, it have to be amplified to exact 1V. Thus if 20mV, then 2V. Actuallyi will measure small differential voltage across a shunt. (mostly for current sense...)

The two measures should match.
Check balun parameters. For example, if your DUT has single end impedances equal to 50 ohm, you should use a single to differential balun with 1:2 impedance ratio (if you're using ADS take care that the T parameter means turn ratio and not impedance ratio, being Zratio=sqrt(Tratio)), DUT and balun 2:1 impedance ratio

Because it is the power signal to noise ratio that determines performance. Also power is easier to measure than voltage at these frequencies.

I think you are more confused than that.
You should realize that there is a big difference between dBm and dB.
dBm is a power ratio. Specifically, it is the ratio of a power measured at a certain point (like the output of an amplifier), to 1 milliwatt.
In other words, if you had 105 milliwatts at an amplifier output, the power could also

voltage always depends on resistance and it is not easy to measure resistance on high frequencies. Power does not depends on resistance and therefore, it is more convenient parameter for RF and microwave technology.

Dear Osawa Odessa: In an earlier reply others and myself tried to explain that all RF amplifiers amplify RF power, and you can measure the voltage across a typical source/load impedance like 50 Ohms. If you need to load your amplifier otherwise to get a higher or lower voltage, you can use RF transformers.

S21 is similar to a voltage gain. Technically, it is the ratio of transmitted/incident "wave amplitudes".
Since on a transmission line, you can have forward and reverse travelling "wave amplitudes", you can not simply call them "voltages" since you can not measure them at a point with something like a pyhsical (...)

If you can live with defining the voltage gain based on the maximum available generator power, you can ignore input reflection from the mixer.
Maximum available power conditions means that the RF source is terminated with its own impedance to get maximum power transfer. In that case the actual voltage at the source's terminals (...)
