TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS
Application Note: Practical Tips On Measuring Interference By utilizing the ISM (Industrial-Scientific-Medical) frequency bands, the wireless industry has been able to exploit the increasing popularity of unlicensed communication systems. However, their unlicensed nature carries with it the seeds of serious signal interference problems. Such ISM system designs are type-approved but are then installed by unlicensed owners or contractors. These conditions sometimes lead to signal configurations that unintentionally interfere. The objective of this article is to present measurement tips and procedures which will help a field technician measure signal interference in operating communications systems. By Anritsu Company
Solving Oscillator Frequency Pops (Perturbation)
This aplication note offers two solutions to dealing with abruptly jumps -- up or down -- in oscillator frequency, causing a lost PLL lock or a variety of other system-related problems.
How to Measure Additive Phase Noise of Amplifiers Using Signal Source Analyzers
This application note explains how you can use the 7000 series of signal source analyzers to measure the residual noise of amplifiers.
LTE Drive Test — How To Benefit From Using A R&STSMW
This document describes the highlights of LTE scanning functionality of TSMW. In an FAQ style, it explains briefly the background of LTE and leads to the important measurements that have to be done in a proper network roll-out.
Testing Hopping Radios With Confidence
Tactical radios typically use frequency hopping in order to minimize interference and jamming threats. However, when a frequency hopping technique is applied, the radio may interfere with adjacent signal bands or inband communications technologies. This application note explains the benefits of using a Rohde & Schwarz signal and spectrum analyzer (with realtime option) to enable wideband signal analysis and high probability of intercept in the testing of radios in a frequency hopping mode.
