  • Analyze EMI Problems with the R&S® RTO Digital Oscilloscope
    Analyze EMI Problems with the R&S® RTO Digital Oscilloscope

    In order to deal with electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems, the source of the unwanted emissions needs to be identified before a solution can be implemented. Testing at an EMC compliance laboratory can prove to be both slow and costly, and oftentimes, the information that comes back from the lab is a spectrum curve that indicates frequencies where emissions are critical of in violation of the limits.

  • Measurements on FM Transmitters for Acceptance, Commissioning and Maintenance
    Measurements on FM Transmitters for Acceptance, Commissioning and Maintenance

    Despite the advent of advanced digital transmission methods, analog broadcasting remains highly important. Until now, measurements on FM transmitters in connection with acceptance testing, commissioning and maintenance required using a variety of T&M instruments.

  • R&S Time Code Inserter: Time Code-Based A/V Distortion Analysis
    R&S Time Code Inserter: Time Code-Based A/V Distortion Analysis

    This application note describes how time codes work and how to add a time code to any A/V file.

  • LTE-A Base Station Receiver Tests
    LTE-A Base Station Receiver Tests

    This application note describes how all required receiver (Rx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 7) can be performed quickly and easily by using vector signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz.

  • Flexible Radar Target Generation Using COTS Test Equipment
    Flexible Radar Target Generation Using COTS Test Equipment

    With the recent introduction of the R&S®SMW200A microwave vector signal generator, Rohde & Schwarz now offers a novel approach to flexibly and conveniently generate multiple radar target echoes for systems up to 20 GHz.  When used in combination with the R&S®FSW signal and spectrum analyzer, these commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) test instruments can be configured to support flexible radar target generation including range and target velocity emulation.

ICP-523 Injection Current Probe

ICP-523 Injection Current Probe

This high frequency injection current probe is used for BCI testing in accordance with automotive specifications as well as diagnostic bulk current injection testing up to 1,300 MHz. The insertion loss is 7 dB or less from 1 MHz to 600 MHz and 11 dB or less from 600 KHz to 1,000 MHz. The CW input power rating is 100 watts for 30 minutes.
Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS)

Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS)

Bird’s® Wideband Power Sensor Series (WPS) never requires field calibration, only requires calibration once per year and are traceable to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WPS measures True Average Power, Peak Power, and Duty Cycle directly with exceptional accuracy and uses these precise measurements to calculate a wide range of other important factors, such as VSWR, Return Loss, Reflection Coefficient, Crest Factor, Average Burst Power, and CCDF.
