TEST AND MEASUREMENT APPLICATION NOTES AND WHITE PAPERS

  • Application Note: Measuring RF Levels At Multi-Signal Sites The density of systems operating from a single tower or rooftop location is increasing every year. This complex signal environment makes it extremely difficult to accurately determine whether the radiation present at the overall site is in compliance with current standards. Probes with shaped frequency response curves, along with RMS detection, make compliance with FCC guidelines more accurate in complex multisignal measurement environments

    True Differential Measurements- Characterization of Balanced Devices

    Differential devices offer advantages like noise immunity, low crosstalk, high integration density, and reduced power consumption. However, they also require special measurement capabilities. There are essentially two different measurement methods available: virtual measurements, and true differential measurements.

  • Using FEKO To Calculate Radar Cross Section Of Aircrafts With Engine Inlets
    Using FEKO To Calculate Radar Cross Section Of Aircrafts With Engine Inlets

    Asymptotic methods are the preferred method for calculating the radar cross section (RCS) of targets like aircrafts since the main parts of the target are more than an order of magnitude larger than the wavelength. 

  • Initial Evaluation of a DC/DC Switch Mode Power Supply
    Initial Evaluation of a DC/DC Switch Mode Power Supply

    This application note provides information on the testing of a Buck-type DC/DC subsystem that uses switch mode power supply technology and the oscilloscopes used to conduct the test.

  • Multi-Tone Testing, Theory And Practice
    Multi-Tone Testing, Theory And Practice

    Multi-tone testing was initially implemented to increase the speed of immunity testing, but it also improves equipment efficiency, offers higher flexibility, and is fully compliant to standards. Multi-tones are used in measuring modern audio levels in audio devices, broadband devices, and in internet audio.

R&S FSUP Signal Source Analyzer R&S FSUP Signal Source Analyzer
The Signal Source Analyzer R&S FSUP offers the user a high-end spectrum analyzer (R&S FSU) up to a maximum frequency of 50 GHz, combined with a phase noise tester based on the PLL method. In addition, the R&S FSUP is equipped with two independent, very low-noise DC ports. Supply voltage and tuning voltage can be individually defined for each port via a clear-cut menu, which enables control of external oscillators or a complete characterization. Like an FM/PM/AM demodulator – the R&S FSUP records the oscillator signal over time. With the functionality of a phase noise tester, time domain and spectrum analyzer combined into a single device with a maximum input frequency of 50 GHz, the R&S FSUP is the optimum instrument for development and production.
