  • True Differential Measurements- Characterization of Balanced Devices
    True Differential Measurements- Characterization of Balanced Devices

    Differential devices offer advantages like noise immunity, low crosstalk, high integration density, and reduced power consumption. However, they also require special measurement capabilities. There are essentially two different measurement methods available: virtual measurements, and true differential measurements.

  • Bluetooth Low Energy Measurements Using R&SCBTgo; Additional Tests

    Nearly all tests in accordance with the Bluetooth low energy test specification V4.0 [1] can be performed using the R&S®CBT alone. Some tests additionally call for signal generators to provide interference signals. This application note describes the tests performed with additional equipment and presents straightforward solutions based on the R&S®CBTgo software.

  • Swept Harmonic Distortion Measurements This application note provides a program which allows to record total harmonic distortion, single harmonic distortion factors and level with one generator sweep.
  • 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.
  • Application Note: Calculating VNA Measurement Accuracy Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) are your primary resource when analyzing and characterizing systems and components for RF and Microwave measurements. They are regarded as accurate measuring instruments, however, quantifying the accuracy performance of a VNA in a specific application can be challenging. VNA specifications are a starting point; but, they are based upon very specific calibration and measurement conditions, which are not applicable for many applications. The Anritsu Exact Uncertainty program is available to help you obtain the uncertainty data that is appropriate for your specific application.
