Higher Order MIMO Testing With The R&S SMW200A Vector Signal Generator

Higher Order MIMO Testing With The R&S SMW200A Vector Signal Generator

Due to its outstanding performance the R&S SMW200A vector signal generator is ideal for testing MIMO receivers in a vast variety of applications. It can generate up to eight antenna signals simultaneously in its digital baseband — all standard-compliant and with antenna-specific coding. This application note explains how to use the R&S SMW200A for testing higher order MIMO systems by presenting different key applications. Download the paper to learn more.

Magnetron Theory 101
By Communications & Power Industries, Beverly Microwave Division
A magnetron is a high-power microwave oscillator in which the potential energy of an electron cloud near the cathode is converted into RF energy in a series of cavity resonators. As depicted by the low frequency analog, the rear wall of the structure may be considered the inductive portion, and the vane tip region the capacitor portion of the equivalent resonant circuit. The resonant frequency of a microwave cavity is thereby determined by the physical dimension of the resonator together with the reactive effect of any perturbations to the inductive or capacitive portion of the equivalent circuit.

The Signal Beneath The Signal: IDA 2 Makes Payload And Interference Signals Clear
Detecting RFI, revealing the causes of interference, locating unauthorized transmitters — all these are tasks performed by modern direction finding equipment. Spectrum analysis and time domain displays give much information about the type of signal, but they don’t reveal everything.
