TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Telecommunications Testing Using AR Amplifiers

    This application note explores a number of testing requirements for telecommunication devices and how to benefit from AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation’s products. The paper will cover two broad categories of device testing – characterization and reliability – within mid to high power systems.

  • Circuit Models For Plastic Packaged Microwave Diodes

    This paper reports on the measurement and establishment of circuit models for SOT-23 and SOD-323 packaged diodes. Results indicate that the 1.5 nH estimate for the SOT-23 is a useful result, as is 1.2 nH for SOD-323 single packaged diodes. It was also determined that the effective inductance of the SOT-23 may be reduced to approximately 0.4 nH by adding a second bond wire and modifying the microstrip line. Other lead configurations, including parallel bond wires and common cathode configurations, were also studied.

  • 1-port USB VNAs Provide Cost, Throughput Advantages in Variety of Environments

    This application note discusses the use of a 1-port VNA that’s simpler and less expensive, but can still satisfy most testing requirements in mobile communications and automotive applications.

  • An Introduction To Practical Real-Time Spectrum Analysis

    This application note provides an introduction to the practical uses of RTSAs to reveal important information about the performance of RF/microwave components, track down sources of interference, and monitor the spectrum for activity and security threats.

  • Benchmark Simulations Of Waveguide Components

    There is a driving need for more accurate and compact waveguide components at higher frequencies, while maintaining cost-effective solutions. This application note presents a handful of benchmark simulations of waveguide components performed with FEKO.

TEST AND MEASUREMENT PRODUCTS

Remote controlled Remote Analyzer with receiver characteristics and an unusually comprehensive range of features, making it exemplary value for money. It is particularly suitable for radio monitoring, which is why it is found in broadcasting centers and at essential transmitter locations.

Rohde & Schwarz’s R&S FSWP phase noise tester can measure the spectral purity of signal sources such as generators, synthesizers and voltage-controlled oscillators (VCO) more quickly than with any other solution. The high-end instrument covers a frequency range up to 50 GHz and offers a top dynamic range. It features an extremely low phase noise of its local oscillator coupled with cross-correlation that makes it possible to easily measure signal sources that in the past required complex test setups or could not be measured at all.

The FP7003 is a broadband isotropic electric field measurement instrument for use in EMC and EMI applications

The LNS-18 Low Noise Synthesizer is ideal for use as a signal source for driving up- and down-converters in military, space, and other applications where phase noise is critical. This is due to the fact that this particular synthesizer features the lowest phase noise of any product like it on the market today.

Regulatory requirements are growing. You're under increasing pressure to cut costs. And improving system uptime is always a top priority.
