Agilent in Aerospace/Defense – Webcast Series
Title: Understanding Low Phase Noise Signals
Date: February 20, 2014
Times: 10am PT / 1pm ET / 7pm CET
Presenter: Riadh Said, Product Manager Signal Sources, Agilent Technologies
Phase noise is a fundamental performance characteristic and its tradeoffs include cost, switching speed and optimization for wide vs. narrow offsets. Some signal generators offer two or more levels of phase noise performance, and may allow optimization for wide or narrow offsets. This webcast explains phase noise performance implications, the application-specific requirements, and tradeoffs that affect these applications. It also discusses related signal-generation technologies such as frequency references, frequency converters (i.e., frequency dividers and mixers), and frequency synthesis.
