Modeling Uncertainty In Urban Propagation Using Monte Carlo Theory
By Remcom
Monte Carlo provides an opportunity to handle uncertainty in a scenario by randomly sampling input parameters to obtain results for each unique situation and providing a bound for best and worst case scenarios. One type of Monte Carlo parameter is the Monte Carlo material, which allows the calculation engine to vary its parameters without re-running the scenario. This application note demonstrates how to utilize Monte Carlo materials within REMCOM’s Wireless InSite to vary material properties quickly and efficiently.

Spotlight On Test And Measurement

Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer And RF Recorder
Signal Hound’s BB60A is a real-time spectrum analyzer and RF recorder with a 9 kHz to 6 GHz frequency range and 20 MHz of real-time bandwidth. It’s particularly well-suited for spectrum monitoring and RF recording applications.


Phase Noise Test Systems
Berkeley Nucleonics offers two different models of phase noise test systems with variations in frequency range coverage, both of which are ideal for crystal oscillator manufacturers because of their use of external source features.


24-Port Vector Network Analyzer
The R&S ZNBT8 is a 24-port vector network analyzer for developing and producing active and passive multiport components like GPS, WLAN, and Bluetooth front end modules for multiband mobile phones.
