Tutorial videos on pulsed phase noise measurements are available on the Berkeley Nucleonic’s website. This video shows the advancement in “one-click” simplicity with the model 7000 series with these traditionally complex and cumbersome measurements. The SSA model 7000 series is a complete broadband 2 MHz to 25.6 GHz turnkey system offering absolute and additive phase noise measurements, AM, pulsed, VCO characterization. A fraction of the cost and complexity than any other system in the industry.
