Measuring Phase Noise In Automated Production Settings For Optimum Speed

Source: Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation

The BNC 7000 Series is optimized for phase noise measurements, amplitude noise measurements, frequency and transient tests, and VCO characterization.  The 7000 series also offers a strong automated testing (ATE) solution with an SCPI command set that allows for phase noise plots, spot phase noise values, spurious extraction, and calculation of RMS jitter and integral phase noise. This application note discusses the features and settings that these signal source analyzers come with for optimized ATE measurement capabilities. Download the full paper for more information.
