How To Measure Additive Phase Noise Of Amplifiers Using 7000 Series Signal Source Analyzers

Source: Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation

The 7000 series phase noise measurement system is specifically designed to accurately measure absolute and residual (additive) phase noise of active or passive devices such as amplifiers. This application note explains how to use the 7000 series signal source analyzers to measure the absolute or residual phase noise of pulsed signals in amplifiers.
