Interference Hunting - Part 1
The presentation will help attendees understand the need for RF interference hunting. It will discuss key points such as how we define interference and how it is normally, broadly classified as a first step to identifying its source. Classification normally starts by answering questions such as: Is the interfering signal broad-band or narrow-band? Is it continuous, intermittent, or bursty?
It will also describe common causes of interference from the radio receiver perspective. Terms like Co-Channel Interference, Adjacent-Channel Interference, Out-of-Band Interference, and Blocking are introduced.
On the other side, it will describe causes of interference from the radio transmitter perspective. Terms such as Fundamental Emissions, Harmonic Emissions, Noise, and Intermodulation are introduced.
