Spotlight On Test And Measurement
Characterization Of Satellite Frequency Up-Converters
Application Note | Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG

This app note describes methods using an R&S®ZVA network analyzer, R&S®SMB100A signal generators, and an R&S®FSW signal analyzer to measure key parameters of frequency converters with embedded local oscillator. A commercial satellite up-converter is used as a DUT example.

The Importance Of Antenna Beamwidth In RF Testing
White Paper | A.H. Systems

Antenna beamwidth determines the expected signal strength given the direction and radiation distance of an antenna. This white paper presents a better understanding of beamwidth, and how it influences a test environment is critical to accurate and repeatable tests.
