TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • 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.

  • Differential Measurements with Spectrum Analyzers and Probes
    Differential Measurements with Spectrum Analyzers and Probes

    RF circuit designs typically require measurements at many stages in a signal path. As components continue to decrease in size, and with board space at a premium, it has become even more challenging to integrate adequate test connection for RF instruments.

  • Accurately Characterize Loss and Reflection of Long, Embedded Coaxial Transmission Systems
    Accurately Characterize Loss and Reflection of Long, Embedded Coaxial Transmission Systems

    This application covers an introduction to typical problems that occur when coaxial transmission systems are permanently installed in an enclosed environment, the benefits of swept frequency measurements over single or multiple CS frequency point measurements (along with a detailed list of what is needed to perform said measurements), step-by-step instruction of the procedure, and more

  • True Differential Measurements- Characterization of Balanced Devices
    True Differential Measurements- Characterization of Balanced Devices

    Differential devices offer advantages like noise immunity, low crosstalk, high integration density, and reduced power consumption. However, they also require special measurement capabilities. There are essentially two different measurement methods available: virtual measurements, and true differential measurements.

  • Application Note: Measuring Video Feedthrough in Pulsed Signals Video feedthrough is a very misunderstood term, which is used in the specification of pulse performance for microwave synthesizers.

R&S FSUP Signal Source Analyzer

R&S FSUP Signal Source Analyzer

The Signal Source Analyzer R&S FSUP offers the user a high-end spectrum analyzer (R&S FSU) up to a maximum frequency of 50 GHz, combined with a phase noise tester based on the PLL method. In addition, the R&S FSUP is equipped with two independent, very low-noise DC ports. Supply voltage and tuning voltage can be individually defined for each port via a clear-cut menu, which enables control of external oscillators or a complete characterization. Like an FM/PM/AM demodulator – the R&S FSUP records the oscillator signal over time. With the functionality of a phase noise tester, time domain and spectrum analyzer combined into a single device with a maximum input frequency of 50 GHz, the R&S FSUP is the optimum instrument for development and production.
RF Field Probes And Monitors

RF Field Probes And Monitors

These E-field laser probes contain an internal microprocessor that enables them to "think" for themselves and adapt to their environment. This provides optimal linearization, temperature compensation, control, and communication functions. AR's six E&H field probes cover the range from 100 kHz - 60 GHz, 0.4 to 1,000 V/m, 0.012 to 17 A/m.
