Beyond Wireless: Why mmWaves Are More Than Just 5G Enablers

mmWave technology made its name by helping power 5G communications. But it’s a much more dynamic technology than that, used in industries from aerospace to wireless backhaul. Here we explore ways mmWaves are being tested for use in five different industries.


How To Eliminate Common Power Meter Mistakes

Most measurement errors are the result of a poor setup, from using the incorrect detector type for the signal of interest to failing to make allowances for gating and various forms of modulation.

Perform High Impedance Measurements With Spectrum Analyzers

Modern RF circuit designs can employ oscilloscope probes for direct component probing, replacing traditional RF connectors and ensuring precise measurements.

How To Use Antenna Factors

Antenna factor (AF) measures the relationship between presented field strength and voltage output at an antenna connector, with this factor changing with frequency variations.


Experimenting With Open-Source RF Analysis Tools

These free open-source tools are suitable for non-design engineers to experiment with filters and data plotting, reducing the need for RF design engineers' involvement in each analysis.

How Do You Measure The Phase Noise Of An Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillator?

In this article, we review how to make a phase noise measurement of a 100 MHz oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OCXO) using the Holzworth HA7062D Real-Time Phase Noise Analyzer.
