  • Intelligent Transportation Systems Using IEEE 802.11p
    Intelligent Transportation Systems Using IEEE 802.11p

    For several years, automobile makers and government agencies have sought ways to improve safety on roadways and effectively manage traffic flow. As wireless communication systems are advancing, the vision of automobiles talking to each other and to roadside units is becoming a reality.

  • Simplifying Mixer Measurements with the R&S® ZNB
    Simplifying Mixer Measurements with the R&S® ZNB

    This application note explains how the R&S®ZNB vector network analyzer can be used to significantly simplify S-parameter measurements in mixers.

  • White Paper: Electronic Test And Measurement: Creating New Value, And Revenue Streams, With Embedded Software More than ever, embedded software is playing a central role in intelligent device manufacturers go-to-market strategies. This trend is especially apparent in markets such as telecom, test and measurement, healthcare, and industrial automation where manufacturers are under increasing pressure to innovate, rapidly enter new markets, control costs, maximize incremental revenue from existing customers, and deliver a competitively differentiated customer experience.
  • Efficiently Testing Car Antennas for Broadcast Signals
    Efficiently Testing Car Antennas for Broadcast Signals

    Cars today look and perform a lot differently than they did thirty years ago. With the addition of integrated GPS systems and even digital televisions, modern day vehicles have more antennas than ever. Mounting these antennas vertically in the center of the roof would provide the best performance, but most car designs don’t allow for a set up like this. To ensure proper antenna performance, their receive level needs to be tested in real-world conditions.

  • BTS System Line Sweep And PIM Testing
    BTS System Line Sweep And PIM Testing Line sweep testing is more important than ever and emerging passive intermodulation (PIM) testing requirements have lifted the bar even higher. This ultimately means the contractors, cell technicians, and performance engineers must work closely together to achieve the required quality of service. This article examines the basics of both line sweeping and PIM testing, how they work together, and why we need to perform these tests to a high standard.

4-port Vector Network Analyzer: MS46524A

4-port Vector Network Analyzer: MS46524A

This 4-port vector network analyzer (VNA) series covers the 10 MHz to 4.5/7 GHz frequency ranges and features a 77 microseconds per point sweep speed, a better than 110 dB dynamic range, and a LAN interface for remote control that’s more robust than USB and faster than GPIB

Remote Analyzers with Receiver Characteristics

Remote Analyzers with Receiver Characteristics

The NRA family of remote network analyzers recently received an upgrade to its line. The NRA RX is a new generation of RF analyzers ideal for radio monitoring applications. This is due to their ability to analyze signals up to 6 GHz in the frequency and time domains, while exhibiting receiver-like characteristics at the same time.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24108A)

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24108A)

The MA24108A power sensor is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 8 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs a "dual path" architecture that provides (similar to thermal sensor) True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range, enabling users to make highly accurate average power measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signal up to 8 GHz. The sensors have internal and external triggering capability that facilitates individual slot power measurements of TDMA waveforms as well as burst power measurements of periodic and non-periodic waveforms.

R&S SMC100A Signal Generator

R&S SMC100A Signal Generator

The analog R&S®SMC100A sets new standards for attractively-priced signal generators. It has the smallest size and the best price/performance ratio in its class.

Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer: R&S FSVR

Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer: R&S FSVR

The R&S®FSVR combines a full-featured signal and spectrum analyzer with a real-time spectrum analyzer. Therefore, it provides all the capabilities and features that modern T&M instruments of this kind have to offer. In real-time operation, the R&S®FSVR seamlessly measures and displays the spectrum with a span of up to 40 MHz. As a result, it captures every event for analysis, no matter how brief that it might be.
