The most critical parameter for defining target acquisition for radar and spectral integrity in communication systems is phase noise. Unfortunately, many papers detail the mathematical derivation of phase noise but few mention the reasons for its importance. This application note will discuss the importance of phase noise, and what can be done to lessen its effects in microwave systems. Download the full article for more information.
