TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Introduction to Radar System and Component Tests
    Introduction to Radar System and Component Tests

    This White Paper provides a general overview of different military and commercial radar systems. It also touches some typical measurements challenges on such systems and their components.There is a complementary application note, a new version of the 1MA127 which provides information on radar test and measurement to the main target groups A&D and Automotive. Addtionally it provides an overview of core radar-related products from Rohde & Schwarz.

  • Doppler Generation For Moving Target Testing
    Doppler Generation For Moving Target Testing

    Channel Environment Replicator (CER) applications simulate and recreate outdoor environments in which radar systems must operate. It’s a much less expensive testing method when compared to the potential complications encountered in more traditional field testing, though testing a moving target in such an application isn’t all that simple.

  • How To Generate And Measure Noise Power Ratio (NPR) Signals

    In order to generate noise power ratio stimulus signals and to measure the resulting noise power ratio of a device under test (DUT), Rohde & Schwarz offers the Noise Power Ratio (NPR) as an add-on tool for WinIQSIM / WinIQSIM2™ software. This NPR measurement technique drastically reduces measurement time compared to classic gain wobbling, and is able to characterize the linearity of a wideband amplifier over a custom frequency range. This application note provides an overview of the software, its features, hardware and software requirements, installation, parameters, and more.

  • Measurement Of Harmonics Using Spectrum Analyzers
    Measurement Of Harmonics Using Spectrum Analyzers

    This Application Note focuses on measurement of harmonics using modern spectrum analyzers and highlights the source of harmonics before focusing on their measurement using a spectrum analyzer.

  • The Y Factor Technique For Noise Figure Measurements This application note describes in detail the steps required to make a noise figure measurement on a spectrum analyzer using the “Y Factor” technique.
