  • Specifying RF/Microwave Power Amplifiers For EMC Testing
    Specifying RF/Microwave Power Amplifiers For EMC Testing

    Historically, amplifier selection for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing was based mainly on meager knowledge and information scattered across the EMC industry. However, proper EMC amplifier selection is an important step in achieving required RF levels. This application note offers the information necessary to make the optimal amplifier selection by taking the reader through numerous considerations.

  • Network Operator Interference Detection And Geo-Location Challenges

    Network operators are always looking to meet high customer demands, while providing higher throughput, 24/7 uptime, and higher service quality. To meet these goals, it is critical that operators and DAS vendors are proactive in maintaining a clear spectrum environment, and eliminate problems that negatively impact user experience. This application note discusses how Anritsu’s spectrum monitor system provides operators and DAS vendosr with an efficient and automated method for identifying, detecting and geo-locating problem signals in the network environment.

  • Optimizing WLAN Test Systems For Measurement Speed: Four Ways To Reduce Measurement Time By National Instruments Corporation With increasing pressure to lower test costs, many RF test engineers face the challenge of reducing measurement time. As you might expect, wireless LAN (WLAN) device testing is no exception. Whether you are creating an automated test system for design validation or final production test, it has become increasingly important to optimize a test system for measurement speed.

Fast, Low-Noise Digital Signal Generator: SGD Fast, Low-Noise Digital Signal Generator: SGD
Aeroflex's SGD is a fast, low noise digital signal generator and is part of the Aeroflex S-Series of products. This generator is ideal for demanding, critical receiver measurement and rapid manufacturing, or for general purpose applications. It covers the 100 kHz to 6 GHz frequency range, features a fast settling time of 100 µs, and has a +13 dBm output with a +20 dBm option. Users have the option to design waveform files from simple generic or system specific templates as well as convert user designed waveforms into compatible formats with an embedded version of of IQCreator®, Aeroflex's powerful waveform creation tool. Waveforms designed in IQCreator® can include signal impairments and time markers to aid sychronization. Graphical displays of the waveform FFT, vector and constellation diagrams, etc. can be viewed and exported for use in other Windows™ applications.
