Noise typically limits the overall performance of any wireless system and impacts a spectrum analyzer’s ability to measure very low amplitude signals while maintaining high accuracy and fast sweep speed. This app note presents five tips to improve the measurement sensitivity and accuracy for small signals.
LTE – the fastest growing mobile radio standard – had its beginnings in 3GPP Release 8. Initial improvements and new features were implemented in Release 9. This Application Note describes the T&M methods for LTE Release 9 features using Rohde & Schwarz instruments.
Many spectrum analyzers can detect phase noise levels automatically, making phase noise measurements a task without much thought. This paper discusses key aspects in determining phase noise measurements, and presents formulas and examples that may be used for simplifying measurements.
In this application note, Tektronix discusses how its portfolio of test equipment reduces testing uncertainty in the design process and delivers confidence in the integrity of increasingly complex radar designs.
This application note describes how all required transmitter (Tx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 6) can be performed quickly and easily by using signal and spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz.
