Choosing the Best Bit Depth for IQ Captures or Streams White Paper

This paper explains the relationship between noise, sampling rates, and bit depth in a system designed for IQ capture. With an understanding of these interdependencies, it is possible to optimize the configuration of a receiver, such as the Anritsu Field Master Pro MS2090A, when capturing IQ data to minimize the memory size of the resulting data file. Smaller files are typically easier to analyze in post processing tools making the identification of all signals faster and easier. P/N: 11410-02837

Understanding Key Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer Specifications White Paper

Spectrum analyzers are the fundamental instrument used by RF engineers to measure individual signals across a defined frequency band. They capture and display wanted and unwanted signals, enabling a range of measurements including power, frequency, modulation and distortion. There are several different types of spectrum analyzer system architectures. This paper reviews the architecture of real-time spectrum analyzers (RTSA), swept-tuned spectrum analyzers, and vector signal analyzers, and highlight their relative merits and compromises.

Superposition vs. True-Balanced: What's Required for your Signal Integrity Application White Paper

The superposition technique relies on the inherent linear nature of a transmission line, and mathematically derives the differential and common-mode transmission line characteristics through superposition while stimulating just one side of the balanced transmission line at a time. The true-balanced/differential technique, also known as True-Mode Stimulus, uses two sources to create actual differential and common-mode stimuli. This white paper offers guidance to signal integrity designers on the differences between these approaches and which one may best fit their need. P/N: 11410-00659

Millimeter-wave Partial Information De-embedding: Errors and Sensitivities White Paper

De-embedding methods making significant structural assumptions have become popular in recent years, particularly in PC board and cable assembly spaces, because of the relative immunity to repeatability and standards availability problems at the DUT plane. Some of the same issues occur in mm- wave fixtures where repeatability can be even more of a challenge. This white paper goes through the methods and behaviors of these challenges. P/N: 11410-01080

The Impact of Return Loss on Base Station Coverage in Mobile Networks

In this paper we focus on losses due to reflections. These reflections are measured using a cable and antenna analyzer such as the Site Master. Operators often specify that the worst case reflections (return loss) over the operating frequency range of the system must be 18 dB. P/N: 11410-00974

RF and Microwave Material Measurements: Techniques and Applications White Paper

Continual demand to accurately measure dielectric and magnetic properties of materials is a common need and is apparent in our every day lives. There is a need to quantitatively characterize material properties at RF and microwave frequencies. Learn more about the use of vector network analyzers (VNAs) as a flexible and versatile tool to accurately and quantitatively characterize material properties and showcase the broad applicability of the VNA as a tool to accurately do this at high frequencies.

Wideband Optical Modulator and Detector Characterization

Uncertainties and the Impact on Eye Diagrams/Time Domain Modeling The characterization and measurement of E/O and O/E components at higher microwave frequencies has a different uncertainty distribution than at lower frequencies. A careful process can help minimize many of those categories. The individual uncertainty components have very different effects on final subsystem modeled time domain results, such as eye diagrams. Understanding that error propagation can be useful. In a practical example, optimizing the critical uncertainty components can lead to noticeably better eye behavior in the final model.
