Transmitting broadcast signals to remote areas can be challenging. That is why the Center for Research and Applied Sciences (CIICAp) at the University of Morelos, Mexico (UAEM), embarked on a project to improve antenna signal stability.
When choosing an amplifier, how much input power is required to achieve full rated output power? This article is part two of AR’s series “Specifying RF/Microwave Power Amplifiers for EMC Testing,” and details the requirements for an amplifier’s input and output values.
A complex testing scheme usually involves integrating multiple pieces of equipment from multiple manufacturers. This article discusses the differences in proprietary and generic interfaces, the benefits each type has to offer, and offers some solutions to potential interface barriers and how to remove them.
This application note provides an overview of EMI compliance testing, pre-compliance testing, and the measurement regulations. It also presents test setups using Tektronix's RSA306 and similar products used to perform both radiated and conducted emission measurements.
Radar signal analysis applications require highly specialized test equipment to model and test transmitted or received signals. Secondary surveillance radar is a type of radar that is often used for air traffic control (ATC) applications as well as identify friend or foe (IFF) military applications.
The BNC 7000 Series is optimized for phase noise measurements, amplitude noise measurements, frequency and transient tests, and VCO characterization. This application note discusses the features and settings that these signal source analyzers come with for optimized ATE measurement capabilities.
Troubleshooting an RF interface requires the use of a spectrum analyzer where the user must be watching the screen to witness the interference. This application note presents the Rack-Mount SignalHawk™ spectrum analyzer with advanced spectrum logging (ASL) as a solution to this problem.
AR/RF Microwave Instrumentation has released its latest poster providing useful combinations of AR amplifiers, antennas, systems, and accessories based on both radiated and conducted immunity standards testing requirements. The recommendations contained in the poster provide the user with a good starting point for defining their testing needs.
