TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Application Note: Power Measurements Anritsu’s handheld Site Master, Cell Master, BTS Master, Spectrum Master, and VNA Master products provide a wide range of modes and options for power measurements including the High Accuracy Power Meter, the Internal Power Meter, the External Power Monitor, and the Channel Scanner. Each Power Meter solution has its own unique strengths and benefits. The objective of this application note is to discuss the basics of these different power meter solutions and to explain how Anritsu’s handheld products can be used to make power meter measurements for different applications
  • 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.

  • Field Analyzers In EMC Radiated Immunity Testing

    In radiated immunity testing, it is common practice to utilize a radio frequency (RF) field probe to measure the electric field at the location of the unit under test (UUT). Most RF field probes are designed to measure the root mean square (RMS) of a continuous wave (CW) electric field over a broad range of frequencies and amplitudes.

  • LTE Beamforming Measurements

    Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technology is an integral part of 3GPP E-UTRA long term evolution (LTE). As part of MIMO, beamforming is also used in LTE. This article provides a brief summary of the transmission modes in LTE and describes the beamforming measurements for base stations and user equipment.
