  • 802.11ad – WLAN at 60 GHz
    802.11ad – WLAN at 60 GHz

    Data rates in the range of several Gigabit/s are needed to transmit signals like uncompressed video signals. Amendment 802.11ad to the WLAN standard defines the MAC and PHY layers for very high throughput (VHT) in the 60 GHz range. This white paper provides an introduction to the technology behind 802.11ad and highlights the test and measurement requirements.

  • Assisting Tools for Operation of Windows-Based T&M Instruments
    Assisting Tools for Operation of Windows-Based T&M Instruments

    This document describes how software tools can assist in controlling Windows®1-based T&M instruments equipped with displays.

  • Optimizing WLAN Test Systems For Measurement Speed: Four Ways To Reduce Measurement Time By National Instruments Corporation With increasing pressure to lower test costs, many RF test engineers face the challenge of reducing measurement time. As you might expect, wireless LAN (WLAN) device testing is no exception. Whether you are creating an automated test system for design validation or final production test, it has become increasingly important to optimize a test system for measurement speed.
  • Initial Evaluation of a DC/DC Switch Mode Power Supply
    Initial Evaluation of a DC/DC Switch Mode Power Supply

    This application note provides information on the testing of a Buck-type DC/DC subsystem that uses switch mode power supply technology and the oscilloscopes used to conduct the test.
