  1. Spectrum Monitor Module: MS27100A Datasheet
    5/4/2016

    The MS27100A is designed to provide superior sweep speeds, high dynamic range, and low spurious levels for fast and accurate measurements. Applications include monitoring for interference, white space analysis, unlicensed transmission discovery, and signal coverage. The module is available as a single RF input port instrument with wired Ethernet for remote interface and USB ports for connecting accessories. The MS27100A can also be expanded to four RF input ports with an optional multiplexer accessory.

    The MS27100A is designed to facilitate the identification and removal of illegal or unlicensed interference signals. These problem signals can be identified as they occur in real time by monitoring a spectrum continuously. Unwanted signal activity and their patterns can also be observed, which provides an efficient way to characterize and locate the source of the interference problem.

  3. In-Building Mapping With The Anritsu S412E LMR Master And The MA8100A Series TRX NEON Signal Mapper

    Facility managers often need to verify public safety, broadcast, and personal communications system operations throughout a facility. Point location measurements of spectrum analyzer displays are commonly used to document their signal levels. The Anritsu S412E combined with the MA8100A Series 3D signal mapping solution provides a powerful in-building mapping solution so users can easily make measurements and create detailed maps and reports of in-building coverage.

  4. Tuneable High-Q, High Power VHF/UHF Bandpass Filter: CB503 Datasheet
    5/4/2016

    The CB503 tuneable High-Q, high power VHF/UHF bandpass filter is comprised of a three section passive machined combline filter with an input/output coupling structure. This coupling structure enables the filter to be tuned to any central frequency in the range of 160MHz to 360MHz and to maintain its high-Q and excellent rejection, insertion loss, and center return loss performance for de-confliction filtering, military mobile/mounted VHF/UHF Communication systems, and base station antenna filter applications.

  6. Comparing Time Domain Scans And Stepped Frequency Scans In EMI Test Receivers
    5/4/2016

    During product development, the frequency spectra of disturbances needs to be measured frequently and compared against the limits set in current product standards. One newer method of measurement is a time domain scan which allows significant reduction in measurement times without affecting accuracy. This white paper uses the CISPR 16-1-1 compliant R&S ESR EMI test receiver as an example for making comparisons between the measurement speed and level measurement accuracy of a conventional stepped frequency scan versus an advanced FFT-based time domain scan.

  7. Satellite Payload Pre-Launch Testing
    5/4/2016

    At the beginning of 2015, around 1200 satellites were fully operational in orbit around the planet, half of which were communication satellites. This number of satellites is expected to expand at a progressive rate within the next years. In order to have success in the development of satellite projects from the beginning to development, reliable testing needs to be done at each stage. This application note focuses on RF component and module testing of satellite communication payloads as well as complete satellite communication payloads using R&S instruments at pre-launch level.

  8. Simplifying Receiver Testing
    5/4/2016

    The advanced R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator is capable of simplifying receiver testing up to 20 GHz by removing the need for multiple signal generators. This single-box solution brings real-world receiver testing such as fading, blocking, selectivity, and MIMO into the lab. Download this application note for a better understanding of how this generator can be used for both determining the quality of the receiver under ideal conditions and to determine its quality under harsh, real-world conditions.

  9. What Makes A Good VNA?
    5/4/2016

    A good vector network analyzer (VNA) requires excellent hardware performance combined with a simple software that features valuable post-processing capabilities. Since there are many VNAs on the market with either economy grade or laboratory test grade performance, it is important to understand what separates the two. This application note discusses the particular components and design aspects that will maximize the performance of a VNA.
