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

  • Next-Generation (3G/4G) Voice Quality Testing With POLQA

    This white paper provides details on the POLQA® (Perceptual Objective Listening Quality Assessment) algorithm. According to the recommendation of International Telecommunications Union, POLQA® is the next generation mobile voice quality testing standard. An example hardware setup for standard independent audio measurements is also included in the white paper. By Rohde & Schwarz

  • 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.

  • 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.

Channel Power Monitor

Channel Power Monitor

The Channel Power Monitor is specifically designed to monitor up to 16 channels simultaneously within complex communication systems. It is meant to provide the user with continuous information on the health of each component, including radio performance, combiner loss, and antenna/feed line characteristics of the system.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24208A)

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24208A)

The MA24208A is a power sensor designed with “triple path” architecture that provides True-RMS measurements for CW, multi-tone, and digitally modulated signals from 10 MHz to 8 GHz over 80 dB of dynamic range. The sensor employs high-performance digital processing which enables measurement speeds of >1,600 continuous power readings/s continuous and >11,000 buffered readings/s. It is intended to be used to increase throughput and reduce cost-of-test in any lab, high-volume manufacturing and field environment.
