Development Tactics And Techniques For Small Form Factor RF Signal Recorders

 This paper describes the engineering considerations and design techniques used to develop a small form factor rugged recorder that can handle the extremely high data rates associated with very wide bandwidth RF signal recording. It is intended to provide engineers with ideas on how to bring this capability into confined and often extreme environments while focusing on military specification compliance, SWaP, and ease of use with confidence.

Six Essential 5G Field Tests Using FieldFox Handheld Analyzers

5G cellular technology will push the boundaries of networks and fuel technologies such as autonomous cars, Internet of Things (IoT), virtual reality, and live streaming videos. These new capabilities and improvements will require accurate field test methods for deployment. This article introduces six essential field tests for 5G installation, verification, optimization, and troubleshooting using the FieldFox handheld analyzer.

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.
