Design Work On 'Brain' Of World’s Largest Radio Telescope Completed

An international group of scientists led by the University of Cambridge has finished designing the ‘brain’ of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), the world’s largest radio telescope. When complete, the SKA will enable astronomers to monitor the sky in unprecedented detail and survey the entire sky much faster than any system currently in existence.

3 Series MDO Spectrum Analyzer Vs. Oscilloscope FFT Comparison

Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes have built-in spectrum analyzers with an RF input that is ideal for significantly higher dynamic ranges than an oscilloscope using a regular input and an FFT function. This download compares the performance of the 3 Series MDO's built-in spectrum analyzer to common oscilloscope FFT performance.

4 Tips For 5G New Radio Signal Creation

Working with 5G New Radio (NR) technologies requires dealing with millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, wide channel bandwidths, and complex multi-antenna configurations. To properly simulate 5G NR compliant signals for testing transmitters and receivers of base stations, metrology-grade reference signals are required to see the true characteristics of the device under test (DUT). This white paper outlines the steps to get started on the next phase of the 5G rollout. Insights include tips on how to create and evaluate 5G NR signals, and what to watch for during design validation.

    What Is Your Old Spectrum Analyzer Hiding From You?

    Digital Phosphorus Technology, or DPX, is a Tektronix patented acquisition mode that performs the hardware DSP processing and rasterizing of the samples into pixel information in order to reveal a greater amount of signal detail. It gives a truly “live” view of the RF signals, with its color-grading feature allowing users to see different signals at the same frequency yet separated by either time or power levels. In this video, DPX is demonstrated and reveals signals that your old spectrum analyzer might be hiding from you. You can literally see signals hidden beneath other signals!
