  • 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.
  • Differential Measurements with Spectrum Analyzers and Probes
    Differential Measurements with Spectrum Analyzers and Probes

    RF circuit designs typically require measurements at many stages in a signal path. As components continue to decrease in size, and with board space at a premium, it has become even more challenging to integrate adequate test connection for RF instruments.

  • Testing LTE MIMO Signals Using An R&S® RTO Oscilloscope

    This application note will explain how to measure LTE MIMO with a Rohde & Schwarz RTO Oscilloscope.

  • Pulsed S-Parameter Measurements Many devices, particularly power devices, were not designed to operate continuously or with CW signals. When devices are being tested on-wafer, this becomes even truer since thermal resistance is often greatly increased. In these cases, S-parameter measurements must often be performed in a pulsed environment. The objective of this article is to provide an understanding of performing general S-parameter measurements with a vector network analyzer (VNA) across a range of pulsed conditions for both RF and microwave/mm-wave measurement applications.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24105A) Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24105A)

The Anritsu MA24105A Inline Peak Power Sensor is designed to take accurate average power measurements from 2 mW to 150 W and peak power measurements from 2 W  to 300 W over the frequency range of  350 MHz to 4 GHz. The sensor employs a “dual path” architecture that enables True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range allowing users to measure CW, multi-tone and digitally modulated signals such as LTE, LTE-TDD, GSM/EDGE, CDMA, W-CDMA, WiMAX, TD-SCDMA, WLAN, and LTE. The forward direction path also include a 4 MHz bandwidth channel that has peak and comparator/integrator circuits that add measurement functions such as PEP power, crest factor, CCDF, and burst average power. Another detection circuit on the reverse direction adds reverse power measurement capabilities including reverse power, reflection coefficient (magnitude), return-loss, and SWR. The presence of a micro-controller along with signal conditioning circuitry, ADC, and power supply in the sensor makes it a complete miniature power meter.
