mmWave Testing: Positioning Equipment Considerations

Operating in mmWave bands requires adherence to tighter tolerances. Test methods and positioner design and selection must provide this precision, as well as accommodate more directional beamforming and a total-system approach.

Testing High-Power Amplifiers For Radar Signals Using Peak Power Meters

As new power amplifier (PA) technologies are released, the latest being GaN technology, an amplifier’s behavior must be thoroughly tested and evaluated to ensure the highest performance under the stress of high-power pulsing signals. 

Wi-Fi 6E Passive Components And RF Test Systems

JFW has introduced numerous new products to support testing the full range of frequencies allotted by Wi-Fi 6E.

Experimenting With Open Source RF Analysis Tools

Instead of asking an RF design engineer with the software license and experience to run an analysis every time you want to try something, consider a number of free open source tools that make great options for non-design engineers to use for experimenting with filters and plotting data.

What Is An RF Signal Generator?

A radio frequency (RF) signal generator is a device that behaves as a stable local oscillator signal, generating different types of modulated signals.

Fast Switching, High-Performance PLL And Quadband VCO Frequency Synthesizer

PLLs are used to generate RF and IF signals from less than 1 MHz to tens of GHz and higher. Application requirements vary widely, and PLL design and optimization involves trading off parameters such as power consumption, phase noise, frequency tuning range, frequency resolution, and lock time.

Combining On-Wafer VNA And Spectrum Analyzer Measurements

This app note describes how S-parameters and spectrum analysis can be monitored simultaneously from 70 kHz to 110 GHz using the VectorStar ME7838A, the Spectrum Master MS2760A, and the Anritsu MN25110A W1 coaxial precision directional coupler.

Groundbreaking RF Temperature Sensor Systems Utilize CMT’s One-Port VNAs

As passive RF sensing grows, leveraging the price and form factor of CMT’s reflectometers is a real enabler for pushing the technology out into wider usage. Sensatek has brought its technology, including 1-Port VNAs, to customers in a variety of industries throughout the world.
