3/1/2011, ,19 Minutes

Who will benefit:

  • Microwave engineers
  • RF engineers
  • Digital engineers
  • Signal integrity engineers
  • Engineers interested in frequency and time domain S-parameters of components, sub-systems, communication and radar systems

What you will learn:

  • Review differences between Frequency and Time domains
  • Provide examples of different types of time domain displays
  • Discussion on Windows processing
  • Discussion on Time Domain resolution
  • Low Pass vs Band Pass Processing
  • Low Pass/StepMode measurements of Beatty Standards

Tell me moreā€¦
Time domain data provides valuable data for the design engineer to develop a design and for the production engineer to substantiate the performance of the device or system. This presentation also addresses the properties of the VectorStar VNA and shows how the various processing options are used to obtain optimum results for a given application. It will not address the algorithmic details of the FFT.
