Signals Application Note
In the past, signals have been hidden by various means. Recently signals have been hidden by making them look like an CDMA, GSM, or LTE signal, while they could be something completely different. It is becoming necessary to confirm that a signal is actually what it appears to be. This application note will discuss and provide examples of the importance of not only measuring the shape and bandwidth, but demodulating to confirm the signal type.
