Performing Differential Noise Figure Measurements Application Note

In recent years, numerous improvements have been made in noise figure measurements through better algorithmic understanding of the measurements (e.g., [1]-[6]), more sensitive receivers, and less error-prone methods of processing noise power measurements. Anritsu has incorporated a number of these improvements in the single-ended Noise Figure Measurement Option of the VectorStar vector network analyzer (VNA) platform. This application note offers insights in to and examples of performing differential noise figure measurements. P/N: 11410-01094

Technique for Improving Low Insertion Loss VNA Measurements Application Note

Vector network analyzers (VNAs) are used to measure the performance of a wide variety of passive and active RF and microwave devices. Passive devices can be less demanding to test than active devices, thus requiring less performance from the VNA. However, one interesting exception to this is the measurement of very low insertion loss passive components such as precision adapters or airlines. These types of devices can present a difficult challenge to characterize because of the desire for very low uncertainties on these small insertion losses. This application note talks about these challenges and provides a helpful technique. P/N: 11410-01090

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

Electrical-to-Optical and Optical-to-Electrical (E/O and O/E) converter measurements

As fiber and free-space optical communication bandwidths increase, the need for very high speed optical modulators and detectors has also increased. The frequency response characterization of these electrical-to optical (E/O, modulators sometimes integrated with lasers) and optical-to-electrical (O/E, photo detectors and receivers) converters can be important in terms of such parameters as bandwidth, flatness, phase linearity and group delay.
