Title: Residual Phase Noise Measurement of Components for Advanced Radar Systems

Date: August 18, 2021

Time: 8:00am PT / 11:00am ET

Sponsored by: Rohde & Schwarz

Presented by: Leander Humbert: Technology Manager, and Dr. Wolfgang Wendler: Product Manager

Phase noise becomes an increasingly important system-level specification for electronic test equipment, communications systems, and radar systems. Modern radar systems are trying to extract more information about the targets they track and provide the ability to track even slow moving targets in the presence of clutter. The lower the phase noise, the better this will work.

However, for system and design engineers, it is not only important to quantify the phase noise produced by local oscillators, but also the phase noise added by each component in the signal processing chain. This webinar reviews the fundamentals of residual or additive phase noise and addresses measurement techniques for determining the amplitude (AM) and phase noise added by two-port devices such as: amplifiers, mixers, block frequency converters, multipliers, dividers, and frequency synthesizers

Presenter Bio:
Leander Humbert is a radar technology manager at Rohde & Schwarz. He completed his master’s degree in electrical engineering in 2004 at the Helmut Schmidt University in Hamburg. Between 2004 and 2011, he worked as a system engineer for electronic warfare systems at the German Air Force. From 2012 to 2016, he was a technical counselor for missile and air defense related sensor systems at IABG. At Rohde & Schwarz, he deals with all test and measurement aspects and requirements of current and future radar sensors.

Dr. Wolfgang Wendler studied physics at the University of Bayreuth and did his PhD thesis in 1996 on nuclear magnetic properties of platinum and aluminum. He joined Rohde & Schwarz in 2004 as a product manager for signal and spectrum analyzers with the focus on high-end measurement applications. Besides defining analysis tools for digitally modulated signals for wireless applications like WLAN, he focused on measurement tools for highly accurate phase noise, noise figure or pulse measurements. As an expert for advanced aerospace and defense applications of spectrum analyzers, he influenced the development of new product features and application software of modern high-end phase noise testers and signal and spectrum analyzers
