  • Optimizing WLAN Test Systems For Measurement Speed: Four Ways To Reduce Measurement Time By National Instruments Corporation With increasing pressure to lower test costs, many RF test engineers face the challenge of reducing measurement time. As you might expect, wireless LAN (WLAN) device testing is no exception. Whether you are creating an automated test system for design validation or final production test, it has become increasingly important to optimize a test system for measurement speed.
  • Simplified Analysis of Frequency Agile Radars
    Simplified Analysis of Frequency Agile Radars

    Undesired emissions can occur in radars during frequency hopping techniques, when changes in pulse width or modulation are employed, or in staggered pulse repetition rate implementation. However, these frequency agility techniques enable radars to quickly change modes of operation on a pulse-to-pulse basis. In order to validate a radar system’s performance when these types of techniques are applied, thorough operations testing should be conducted.

  • Application Note: Easy Testing Of TV Transmitters' Out-Of-Band Emissions During commissioning, maintenance and service, the essential operating parameters of a TV transmitter must be checked. One particularly demanding task is to measure out-of-band emissions, i.e. signal components in the transmitter's adjacent channels. High-power and low-power transmitters have similar specifications for this measurement. However, since low-power transmitters are often located at difficult-to-access sites, portable measuring equipment is a major advantage.
