Understand The Source Of Emissions With New RF Triggering

EMI failures happen, but the faster the source is identified, the faster the operation can get back on schedule. The 4, 5, or 6 Series MSO from Tektronix can help correlate signals on a board with near-field RF, with a new RF trigger capability. This application note discussed how this is done.

Don’t Stop With S-Parameters: 5 Essential VNA Measurements For Modern RF Devices

As devices become more highly integrated, complete characterization requires more than simple S-parameters. This white paper goes over some of the critical vector network analyzer (VNA) measurements you must master to prepare for the next generation of RF devices.

MIL-STD-461 Testing Advantages Using Time Domain Scan EMI Receivers

This application note compares the measurement speed and level measurement accuracy of a conventional swept frequency spectrum analyzer against the speed and accuracy of advanced time domain scanning. 

Optimizing EMC Testing With Pre-Compliance Test Chambers

On-site testing is an efficient technique for completing EMC product testing to EMC industry standards. Shielded rooms and anechoic EMC test chambers are cost-effective, time saving, offer confidentiality for company developments and patents, and increase reliability.

Anatomy Of A High-Reliability Chip Resistor

This document covers design and fabrication considerations used in Mini-Systems' thick film processes to maximize the performance of their high-reliability chip resistors in surface-mount adhesion, automated electronic assembly, electrical performance, bondability, and more.

Multichannel Radar Signal Emulator (MRSE) System For Testing Radar In Space Applications

D-TA Systems’ 4-channel standard MRSE-2000 system is designed to provide a phase coherent multichannel radar signal emulator platform that could simulate the backscatter returns from a distant flying target to a multiple channel radar system. 

Consistent SATCOM Gain And Flatness Performance With The AR-50

The AR Modular RF Model AR-50 booster amplifier provides superior up and downlink performance for enhancing UHF satellite communications. Properly setting up the receive path will maximize the link quality and reliability.
