    An Introduction To Practical Real-Time Spectrum Analysis

    This application note provides an introduction to the practical uses of RTSAs to reveal important information about the performance of RF/microwave components, track down sources of interference, and monitor the spectrum for activity and security threats.

  • 802.11ad – WLAN at 60 GHz
    802.11ad – WLAN at 60 GHz

    Data rates in the range of several Gigabit/s are needed to transmit signals like uncompressed video signals. Amendment 802.11ad to the WLAN standard defines the MAC and PHY layers for very high throughput (VHT) in the 60 GHz range. This white paper provides an introduction to the technology behind 802.11ad and highlights the test and measurement requirements.

  • Measurement Of WLAN 802.11 ac Signals This application note provides a guide through the measurements for IEEE 802.11ac WLAN transmitter signals using the general purpose OFDM analysis software R&S FS-K96.
  • Automated Measurements of 77 GHz FMCW Radar Signals
    Automated Measurements of 77 GHz FMCW Radar Signals

    This application note focuses on fully automated, fast and accurate measurements, of linear FMCW radar signals. It explains the basic signal processing, the impact on radar key performance indicators in case of linearity deviations and explains test and measurement of linear FMCW signals in detail.

  • Whitepaper: Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology And Measurements

The R&S®SMBV100A offers excellent RF performance along with very high output level and short setting times. At the same time, the R&S®SMBV100A can be equipped with an internal baseband generator to allow generation of a number of digital standards (e.g. WiMAX, HSPA+, LTE). The wide frequency range from 9 kHz to 6 GHz covers all of the important bands for digital modulation.

Mobile Interference Hunting System: MX280007A Mobile Interference Hunting System: MX280007A

Anritsu’s Mobile InterferenceHunter is a quick and reliable way to find multiple emitters, or single emitters even in difficult reception conditions. The ability to work with multiple signal sources, reflections, RF shadows, and multi-path distinguish the Mobile InterferenceHunter from conventional systems that depend solely on directional antennas. The ability to work with signals that are intermittent, bursty, or drift rapidly in frequency separate the Mobile InterferenceHunter from more expensive solutions targeted at a single fixed frequency interferer. The Mobile InterferenceHunter’s post-capture analysis capability allows users to modify search parameters without re-driving the route. This allows re-analysis of the captured data as well as consulting with experts.

Applications:

  • CATV Leakage location
  • Simplified Spectrum Clearing
  • Locating interference – Even in the presence of uplink signals
  • Finding pulsed or bursty signals

 Key Features:

  • Post-capture analysis
  • Sorts out signal reflections, shadowing, and multi-path
  • Quick setup in any vehicle
  • Much faster than conventional direction finding techniques
