Spotlight On Test & Measurement
Top Research Lab Solves Measurement Challenge In Hours Despite Tight Security

A leading research and development laboratory that supplies safety products to government agencies needed to make wafer level measurements on its semiconductor device to keep its project on track. It applied breakthrough science to solve tough engineering challenges and make state-of the-art products.

Amplifier Selection Tips For EMC Applications

When choosing an amplifier for EMC testing, there are various factors to consider. These factors can include technology, class of operation, good linearity and low harmonic distortion, modulation performance, multiple signal/tone applications, and more. 

EMI Troubleshooting With The Latest-Generation Oscilloscopes

This application note describes techniques that may be used to determine the source of unwanted emissions, especially after an out-of-limits condition has been identified through formal testing or pre-compliance testing.

Understanding Pulsed Phase Noise Measurements

This application note focuses on phase noise measurements for pulsed RF carriers. The paper addresses some of the physical limitations relating to pulsed phase noise measurement and introduces the capabilities of the new Rohde & Schwarz FSWP phase noise analyzer.

Introduction To RNVNA, A Multiport Network Analysis Solution
The RNVNA, a multiport network analysis solution, links up to 16 1-port analyzers together into a multiport network analysis system. Each of the 16 analyzers will make individual vector reflection measurements and scalar transmission measurements from port to port.
On-Wafer Biasing Using Kelvin Bias Tees

The VectorStar ME7838x series of broadband systems covers a range of 70 kHz to 110/125/145/220 GHz. The distinctive architecture of the Anritsu NLTL mmWave modules offers a DC path between the baseband VNA and the DUT through the module.

Using Signal Hound’s Spike Software For EMC Precompliance Radiated Emissions Testing

When conducting an EMC test, many detailed and specific tools, environments, processes, and procedures need to be put in place. The Signal Hound BB60C USB-powered Spectrum/Signal Analyzer and Spike Software accurately carry out flexible EMC precompliance measurements.
