TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Measurement Of Beamforming Antenna In Transmit Mode
    Measurement Of Beamforming Antenna In Transmit Mode

    Rapid and accurate verification of beamforming weights is required for example, for codebook generation, or beamforming algorithm development or verification. This white paper describes the unique application of Rohde & Schwarz’s vector network analyzers to fully characterize the passive part of multi-element antennas intended for beamforming.

  • 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.

  • Measurements on FM Transmitters for Acceptance, Commissioning and Maintenance
    Measurements on FM Transmitters for Acceptance, Commissioning and Maintenance

    Despite the advent of advanced digital transmission methods, analog broadcasting remains highly important. Until now, measurements on FM transmitters in connection with acceptance testing, commissioning and maintenance required using a variety of T&M instruments.

  • Real-Time Radar Target Generation

    As radar test systems are essential for the research, development, production, and maintenance of radar systems, it would be prudent to use one that has the ability to test the entire system including the antenna front end. This application note presents a solution from Rohde & Schwarz that is capable of testing the complete radar system.

  • Low-Cost EMI Pre-Compliance Testing Using A Spectrum Analyzer
    Low-Cost EMI Pre-Compliance Testing Using A Spectrum Analyzer

    This application note provides an overview of EMI compliance testing, pre-compliance testing, and the measurement regulations. It also presents test setups using Tektronix's RSA306 and similar products used to perform both radiated and conducted emission measurements.
