The complexity of modern day electronics has resulted in the need for better EMI diagnostic capabilities at EMC test laboratories to combat the increase in EMI compliance failure rates. One solution is to use real-time mode which enables visualization of the spectrum to provide insight in the identification of the source of failing EMI emissions. This white paper describes the cause of the shift in failure rate that many companies are experiencing, the need for increased speed in testing, and the revolutionary EMI diagnostic capability built into modern EMI receivers.
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a new short-range, standards-based wireless connectivity technology, that uses magnetic field induction to enable communication between electronic devices in close proximity. By Rohde & Schwarz
This document describes how software tools can assist in controlling Windows®1-based T&M instruments equipped with displays.
Noise figure is a key parameter that quantifies receiver performance by measuring how low a power a signal receiver can detect. This white paper covers the basic principles of noise figure, how to make sense of its specifications, how it is measured, and why this parameter is important in high-performance applications.
When analyzing a complex RF signal, characterizing a fast clock, or debugging a high-speed interface, it is important to observe the real signal and not artifacts of the test setup like loading or reflections. The process of removing non-ideal signal path effects is called de-embedding. This application note describes how to perform high-precision RF and microwave tests requiring de-embedding.
