  • Electronic Packaging: Using EMI Material-Based Solutions
    Electronic Packaging: Using EMI Material-Based Solutions

    It can be difficult when individual components could pass EMI testing but, as the components are combined into subsystems or into the final product, the DUT fails. Incorporating EMI shielding materials as part of an initial design is the most cost-effective way to prevent these last-minute issues during testing.

  • Benefits of R&S®RTO Digital Trigger System
    Benefits of R&S®RTO Digital Trigger System

    This application note introduces the working principles of a conventional trigger system and explains the advantages of the real-time capable digital trigger of the RTO oscilloscopes.

  • Application Fixture For Counter-IED Power Amplifier Applications Using Two CG2H40010F GaN HEMTs

    Wolfspeed developed an application circuit that demonstrates the CG2H40010F's ability to operate between 500 MHz to 3000 MHz for satcom applications. This app note describes typical performance and what can be expected when evaluating the application fixture.

  • Frequency And Phase Settling Time Measurements On PLL Circuits

    Frequency hopping is one of the most common methods to avoid interference and to increase security. This application note provides basic information about frequency and phase settling time measurements and how the measurement is implemented inside modern phase noise analyzers, complete with measurement examples and explanations.

  • Accurately Characterize Loss and Reflection of Long, Embedded Coaxial Transmission Systems
    Accurately Characterize Loss and Reflection of Long, Embedded Coaxial Transmission Systems

    This application covers an introduction to typical problems that occur when coaxial transmission systems are permanently installed in an enclosed environment, the benefits of swept frequency measurements over single or multiple CS frequency point measurements (along with a detailed list of what is needed to perform said measurements), step-by-step instruction of the procedure, and more

Mobile Interference Hunting System: MX280007A Mobile Interference Hunting System: MX280007A

Anritsu’s Mobile InterferenceHunter is a quick and reliable way to find multiple emitters, or single emitters even in difficult reception conditions. The ability to work with multiple signal sources, reflections, RF shadows, and multi-path distinguish the Mobile InterferenceHunter from conventional systems that depend solely on directional antennas. The ability to work with signals that are intermittent, bursty, or drift rapidly in frequency separate the Mobile InterferenceHunter from more expensive solutions targeted at a single fixed frequency interferer. The Mobile InterferenceHunter’s post-capture analysis capability allows users to modify search parameters without re-driving the route. This allows re-analysis of the captured data as well as consulting with experts.

Applications:

  • CATV Leakage location
  • Simplified Spectrum Clearing
  • Locating interference – Even in the presence of uplink signals
  • Finding pulsed or bursty signals

 Key Features:

  • Post-capture analysis
  • Sorts out signal reflections, shadowing, and multi-path
  • Quick setup in any vehicle
  • Much faster than conventional direction finding techniques
