What should you do to close potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities in your wireless implantable design? For one, make device security an integral, integrated component of your overall development process. Also, put a higher premium on device security testing — most importantly, penetration testing to identify weaknesses in wireless defenses — and issue remediation. Read more.
Understanding RF Instrument Specifications, Part 3
This final article focuses on specifications that apply to RF signal analyzers. Because there are two major types of RF signal analyzers, vector signal analyzers and spectrum analyzers, we first explain the distinctions between both instruments. Then we provide an introduction to specifications that apply specifically to spectrum measurements that include dynamic range, averaging methods, and displayed average noise floor. Read more.
