How To Measure Additive Phase Noise Of Amplifiers Using The 7000 Series

Source: Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation

The additive phase noise, or residual phase noise, of a component is the self phase noise that adds to an existing signal as the signal passes through it. The additive phase noise measurement technique is used to identify the phase noise contribution of a single component as a part of a system design. This application note covers the process of measuring the additive phase noise measurement of a single-channel in an RF amplifier with the use of the BNC 7000 series.
