  • 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.

  • IQWizard - IQ Signal Measurement and Conversion

    IQWizard is a tool for loading IQ signal files in various formats and measuring IQ signals with a FSx spectrum analyzer or ESx Receiver. The obtained IQ data in memory can be stored in various formats or be transmitted to an AMU / SMU with WinIQSIM™ or WinIQSIM2™.

  • Analyze EMI Problems with the R&S® RTO Digital Oscilloscope
    Analyze EMI Problems with the R&S® RTO Digital Oscilloscope

    In order to deal with electromagnetic interference (EMI) problems, the source of the unwanted emissions needs to be identified before a solution can be implemented. Testing at an EMC compliance laboratory can prove to be both slow and costly, and oftentimes, the information that comes back from the lab is a spectrum curve that indicates frequencies where emissions are critical of in violation of the limits.

  • SCPI-Recorder: Test Automation At Your Fingertips
    SCPI-Recorder: Test Automation At Your Fingertips

    This application note briefly summarizes the history of SCPI and outlines in which fields of application a SCPI based test system software has still advantages over a driver (e.g. IVI) based approach.

  • Benefits of R&S®RTO Digital Trigger System
    Benefits of R&S®RTO Digital Trigger System

MA24106A: USB Power Sensor

MA24106A: USB Power Sensor

The MA24106A power sensor is a USB power sensor that eliminates the need of a traditional power meter. It is a highly accurate, standalone instrument that communicates with a PC via USB. The power measurement capability of MA24106A is intended to mimic that of a traditional thermal (thermo-electric) power sensor with a wider dynamic range. Therefore, it is ideal for measuring average power of CW, modulated RF waveforms such as 3G, 4G, OFDM, and multi-tone signals. It measures true RMS power regardless of the type of the input signal.

Power Meter - 8400 Series

Vector Signal Analyzer: SVA

The SVA Vector Signal Generator is part of the Aeroflex S-Series of products. This signal generator converts RF signals into digital IF or I&Q sampled data providing vector signal analysis of RF signals with functionality and performance required in the laboratory or the manufacturing test system. The SVA is ideal for applications involving the of WLAN, WMAN, WPAN, 2G, 3G, 4G cellular radio signals as well as general purpose analog and digitally modulated signal analysis due to its high linearity, low noise, and excellent level accuracy.
High-Definition Video Clock Generator

High-Definition Video Clock Generator

The VFCG-HD1 is a fully integrated video clock generator which provides synchronous High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) output clocks for the various scanning formats. The device synchronizes to the standard input reference clock required by SMPTE274, SMPTE296, NTSC, or PAL systems.
BCP-518 Broadband Current Probe

BCP-518 Broadband Current Probe

Ideally suited to measuring currents for the immunity requirements of DO-160 and IEC-1000-4-6 on large cables. It has a usable frequency range of 10 kHz to 500 MHz.
Spectrum Analyzer for RF and Wireless Testing and Production: DSA800 Series

Spectrum Analyzer for RF and Wireless Testing and Production: DSA800 Series

The DSA800 series of spectrum analyzers collectively covers the 9 kHz to 1.5, 3.2, or 7.5 GHz frequency range. These systems feature a widescreen display, a compact design, and a simplified interface. The analyzers employ a Rigol digital IF filter to allow for smaller bandwidth settings and a reduction in displayed noise levels.

Low Noise Synthesizer: LNS-18

Low Noise Synthesizer: LNS-18

The LNS-18 Low Noise Synthesizer is ideal for use as a signal source for driving up- and down-converters in military, space, and other applications where phase noise is critical. This is due to the fact that this particular synthesizer features the lowest phase noise of any product like it on the market today.
