Pulsed RF Spectrum And Signal Analysis

Source: Keysight Technologies

The spectrum analyzer is used for the measurement of many characteristics of pulsed radar signals, including pulse width, occupied bandwidth, duty cycle, and peak average power. These devices are also capable of detection transmitter misfiring and frequency pulling effects. This white paper will discuss the operation of spectrum and signal analyzers, as well as explain the correct interpretations of their displayed pulse spectra.
