TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS
Targeting PIM Testing
This article discusses how K&L Microwave and Dow-Key Microwave’s products are used to monitor spurious emissions of systems at the design, type approval testing, and production stages to ensure compliance with existing regulatories established by regulatory agencies.
Creating LabVIEW Drivers for the R&S CompactTSVP by Using GTSL Shared Library Import
This application note describes the procedure used to create LabVIEW driver libraries by importing *.DLL files from the GTSL (Generic Test Software Library) development framework for the R&S CompactTSVP.
Group Delay and Phase Measurement on Frequency Converters
Frequency converters such as those found in satellite transponders need to be characterized not only in terms of amplitude transmission but also in terms of phase transmission or group delay, especially with the transition to digital modulation schemes. They often do not provide access to the internal local oscillators. This application note describes a method using the R&S ZVA to measure group delay of mixers and frequency converters with an embedded local oscillator very accurately.
LTE Drive Test — How To Benefit From Using A R&STSMW
This document describes the highlights of LTE scanning functionality of TSMW. In an FAQ style, it explains briefly the background of LTE and leads to the important measurements that have to be done in a proper network roll-out.
Measuring Multistandard Radio Base Stations
3GPP Release 9 Technical Specification (TS) 37.141 covers multistandard radio base station conformance testing. Multistandard radio includes four standards of mobile communications: GSM, WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, and LTE. This application note introduces the concept of multistandard radio base stations as well as solutions for transmitter and receiver tests.
