  • How To Measure Additive Phase Noise Of Amplifiers Using 7000 Series Signal Source Analyzers

    The 7000 series phase noise measurement system is designed to measure absolute and residual (additive) phase noise of active or passive devices. This app note explains how to use 7000 series signal source analyzers to measure the absolute or residual phase noise of pulsed signals in amplifiers.

  • Overview Of Technologies For Millimeter-Wave OTA Measurement

    As Over The Air (OTA) measurements become more important in 5G technologies, Anritsu proposes a new measurement method for solving millimeter-wave OTA measurements that solves the current Far-Field Measurement (FFM) challenges, and helps to reduce measurement costs. Based on actual measurement results, Anritsu's Near-Field Measurement (NFM) method is capable of offering improved measurement sensitivity. Anritsu also introduces an NFM solution for the E-band using Non-Linear Transmission Line technology. This white paper discusses how Near-Field Measurement technology works, the advantages of using it, and comparisons between NFM and FFM measurement results.

  • Optimizing Performance And Cost For Millimeter-Wave Signal Analysis

    mmWave systems considered for next-gen commercial wireless require test instrumentation that keeps pace with the performance requirements of these systems. This app note discusses advances in mmWave signal analysis and instrumentation.

  • Digitizer Applications Using High-Performance Signal Analyzer

    This application note explains how to cut development and manufacturing time and costs by combining the signal analyzer MS2850A with a dedicated data-transfer interface for high-speed transfer of large amounts of digitized data captured over long time periods.

  • AR RF/Microwave RF Safety Meter Systems Application Note

    As awareness around electromagnetic fields, or non-ionizing radiation, and its effects on the human body when exposed to it has increased over the years, so too has the demand RF safety meters and sensor heads.
