TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS
Intelligent Transportation Systems Using IEEE 802.11p
For several years, automobile makers and government agencies have sought ways to improve safety on roadways and effectively manage traffic flow. As wireless communication systems are advancing, the vision of automobiles talking to each other and to roadside units is becoming a reality.
Simplifying Mixer Measurements with the R&S® ZNB
This application note explains how the R&S®ZNB vector network analyzer can be used to significantly simplify S-parameter measurements in mixers.
White Paper: Electronic Test And Measurement: Creating New Value, And Revenue Streams, With Embedded Software More than ever, embedded software is playing a central role in intelligent device manufacturers go-to-market strategies. This trend is especially apparent in markets such as telecom, test and measurement, healthcare, and industrial automation where manufacturers are under increasing pressure to innovate, rapidly enter new markets, control costs, maximize incremental revenue from existing customers, and deliver a competitively differentiated customer experience.
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.
BTS System Line Sweep And PIM Testing Line sweep testing is more important than ever and emerging passive intermodulation (PIM) testing requirements have lifted the bar even higher. This ultimately means the contractors, cell technicians, and performance engineers must work closely together to achieve the required quality of service. This article examines the basics of both line sweeping and PIM testing, how they work together, and why we need to perform these tests to a high standard.
