  • Overview Of Technologies For Millimeter-Wave OTA Measurement
    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.

  • Basic Bulk Current Injection Testing
    Basic Bulk Current Injection Testing

    Bulk current injection (BCI) testing is a conducted susceptibility procedure that uses an injection current probe. This paper provides an example of BCI testing, covering all steps, including gathering the required equipment, pre-calibration procedures, injection testing procedures, and safety precautions.

  • LTE Beamforming Measurements

    Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technology is an integral part of 3GPP E-UTRA long term evolution (LTE). As part of MIMO, beamforming is also used in LTE. This article provides a brief summary of the transmission modes in LTE and describes the beamforming measurements for base stations and user equipment.

  • Application Note: Calculating VNA Measurement Accuracy Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) are your primary resource when analyzing and characterizing systems and components for RF and Microwave measurements. They are regarded as accurate measuring instruments, however, quantifying the accuracy performance of a VNA in a specific application can be challenging. VNA specifications are a starting point; but, they are based upon very specific calibration and measurement conditions, which are not applicable for many applications. The Anritsu Exact Uncertainty program is available to help you obtain the uncertainty data that is appropriate for your specific application.
