TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS
Determine Interference Problems With Narda’s IDA 2: Example GSM
This application note discusses a case in which a continuous impairment in the GSM 900 band was affecting a cell phone station’s performance, and how Narda’s IDA 2 interference and direction analyzer was able to help.
LTE-A Base Station Receiver Tests
This application note describes how all required receiver (Rx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 7) can be performed quickly and easily by using vector signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz.
RF Testing On Automotive Infotainment Devices
This application note highlights some of the RF measurement challenges and introduces Rohde & Schwarz equipment required for relevant RF characterization of car infotainment devices.
802.11ad – WLAN at 60 GHz
Data rates in the range of several Gigabit/s are needed to transmit signals like uncompressed video signals. Amendment 802.11ad to the WLAN standard defines the MAC and PHY layers for very high throughput (VHT) in the 60 GHz range. This white paper provides an introduction to the technology behind 802.11ad and highlights the test and measurement requirements.
RF Power Measurements In The Field
Measuring RF power in a field environment can be accomplished accurately and inexpensively. It also involves a great deal of care and proper training to ensure equipment is accurately measured. Either way, accurate field power measurements will ensure transmitting equipment is operating properly.
