CC1070 impedance measurement

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: CC1070, CC1101

Hi Folks

I have been tasked to investigate the impedance matching on a product of ours, that uses a CC1070 transmitter IC.

I need some information / confirmation on the setup to measure the impedance looking into the CC1070 matching network from the antenna side.

I have in the past successfully analysed a CC1101 design, where the CC1101, being a transceiver, was put into RX mode. A network analyser confirmed a 50 ohm input impedance into the balun, as per the reference design.

Being a transmitter, how does the CC1070 need to be configured, in order to make a measurement using a network analyser?

I am assuming that the device also needs to be powered, configured for transmit (In my case it is asynchronous OOK at  433MHz) with the RF data input line tied low, so as to ensure that no carrier is transmitted.
