  • Radar And Radio Range Simulation Using FODL
    Radar And Radio Range Simulation Using FODL

    FODL (fiber optic delay line) systems eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming outdoor range tests for radio and radar systems. This white paper outlines how FODL systems’ accuracy, repeatability, and reliability can save money and time when conducting these tests and also explains for delay line core technology works.

  • Field Analyzers In EMC Radiated Immunity Testing

    In radiated immunity testing, it is common practice to utilize a radio frequency (RF) field probe to measure the electric field at the location of the unit under test (UUT). Most RF field probes are designed to measure the root mean square (RMS) of a continuous wave (CW) electric field over a broad range of frequencies and amplitudes.

  • Simulating Automatic Obscuration and Multipath for Realistic GNSS Receiver Testing
    Simulating Automatic Obscuration and Multipath for Realistic GNSS Receiver Testing

    The R&S®SMBV100A is both, a versatile general-purpose vector signal generator and a powerful GNSS signal simulator. It can simulate up to 24 satellites in realtime for testing GNSS receivers flexibly, reliably, and cost-efficiently. The R&S®SMBV100A supports receiver testing under realistic conditions by offering features such as obscuration simulation and automatic multipath generation. Out of a multitude of possible test scenarios – with predefined or user-specific settings – this application note presents some examples to give an impression of the instrument’s capabilities.

  • 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.
  • Multi-Tone Testing Can Save Both Time And Money This article describes a patented multi-tone testing process that allows users to test multiple tones per dwell period in order to increase test efficiency by a factor approximately equal to the number of tones tested. The multi-tone concept’s history is covered, along with information on its effectiveness, and information on potential future applications.
