New VNA Technologies Enable Millimeter-Wave Broadband Testing to 220 GHz

Application development in the millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies for terrestrial communication, high-frequency device characterization, automotive radar, and other technologies is increasing. The challenge of testing and characterizing the devices that enable new solutions is becoming increasingly complex. As broadband testing over hundreds of gigahertz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability and accuracy deficits, researchers and engineers are demanding better broadband solutions that help to overcome these challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA)

Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) is a technique for geo-locating RF sources. It requires three or more remote receivers (probes) capable of detecting the signal of interest. Each probe is synchronized in time to capture corresponding I/Q data blocks. Software shifts the time signature of each I/Q data set to find the difference in the arrival time at each probe.
