  • Measurement Of Radar Cross Section Using The VNA Master Handheld VNA
    Measurement Of Radar Cross Section Using The VNA Master Handheld VNA This application note describes how a modern battery-powered/portable microwave vector network analyzer with time domain gating can make it easy to do RCS tests on the flight line or in the field.
  • Reliably Measuring Actual HF Immissions With SRM-3006
    Reliably Measuring Actual HF Immissions With SRM-3006

    Immission measurement studies on the exposure of the general public to high frequency electromagnetic fields (HF EMF) have been limited to inspecting individual wireless services and the wireless Internet. As a solution, Narda offers the SRM-3006 as a suitable instrument for these measurements.

  • White Paper: BTS System Line Sweep And PIM Testing In this current exciting cellular industry, cellular system performance requirements are at an all time high. We have all experienced dropped calls and poor quality connections while using our cellular devices and these frustrating performance problems directly contribute to subscriber churn, sometimes to a level exceeding 30% of the overall reasons a subscriber decides to change service providers.

  • Pulsed S-Parameter Measurements Many devices, particularly power devices, were not designed to operate continuously or with CW signals. When devices are being tested on-wafer, this becomes even truer since thermal resistance is often greatly increased. In these cases, S-parameter measurements must often be performed in a pulsed environment. The objective of this article is to provide an understanding of performing general S-parameter measurements with a vector network analyzer (VNA) across a range of pulsed conditions for both RF and microwave/mm-wave measurement applications.
  • Group Delay and Phase Measurement on Frequency Converters
    Group Delay and Phase Measurement on Frequency Converters

    Frequency converters such as those found in satellite transponders need to be characterized not only in terms of amplitude transmission, but also in terms of phase transmission or group delay, especially with the transition to digital modulation schemes.
