Solving the Data Transfer Bottleneck in Digitizers

With most modern PC based digitizers a common problem is caused by the fact that the ADC technology runs in advance of PC bus technology. High-speed and high-resolution digitizers offer much more data than the PC environment could transfer. Spectrum presents a solution.

What is Pulse Shaping?

Pulse shaping, as it is done today, is an effort to fix fidelity issues caused by the transmitting amplifier and is accomplished by a combination of imperfect methods, most external to the amplifier.

NI AWR DESIGN ENVIRONMENT: Load-Pull Primer for Optimizing PA Performance

Power amplifier (PA) performance under small- and large-signal operating conditions is contingent upon the output impedance match (load). As a result, PA designers must determine the ideal output load for system-driven amplifier requirements such as output power at a given saturated power (compression point), efficiency, and/or linearity.

The Latest Satellite Technology and Test Essentials Poster

"Get it right the first time" takes on a larger meaning with satellites going into Earth´s orbit or traveling deep into space. From guidance systems to satellite payloads to microwave communications, the right design and validation tools provide greater assurance that your satellite and its subsystems will work the first time.

Application Note: OTA Test of Millimeter-Wave 5G NR Devices and Systems

Understand how millimeter-wave signals (mmWave) will function in real-world environments. With increasingly shorter wavelengths in the 5G air interface, there are new challenges to test. Learn how to thoroughly test 5G mmWave devices for real-world functionality by reading the "OTA Test for Millimeter-Wave 5G NR Devices and Systems" whitepaper.

5 Tips to Keeping your Test Assets Up to Date

Measurement accuracy and reliability depends on you, the test asset user. The Keysight poster titled, “The Calibration Game” outlines 5 areas to get the best performance from your test assets to ensure the best performance for your device under test.

SZG: Where High Power and High Frequency Join Forces

The number of high frequency, high power applications is rapidly increasing each year. The need for resistors with both high frequency performance and high power handling capability is growing. In most cases, the smaller the resistor, the better it will perform at high frequencies.

Decoding 5G New Radio: The Latest on 3GPP and ITU Standards

Everywhere you look today, 5G is at the center of conversations about exciting new technology. Recent announcements from Mobile World Congress 2017 in late February indicate that 5G is already here. The truth is that 5G isn't here yet, but we are getting closer.

Uncover 802.11 WLAN Insights

Take WLAN technology ideas from concept to consumer with confidence. Keysight keeps pace with the constantly evolving WLAN standards – such as 802.11ax and 802.11ad – all with a clear goal to continuously improve spectrum utilization, throughput, and user experience.

Occupied Bandwidth and Channel Power Measurements with a Real-time Spectrum Analyzer

As wireless telecommunication features continue to expand into vir¬tually every control and sense technology in military, industrial, and domestic environments, a wide array of new wireless transmitters and transmitter components will need to be designed, prototyped, calibrated, and analyzed for quality assurance.
