Title: Low Phase Noise is Critical for Communications and Radar. Do You Have What It Takes?

Date: August 9, 2022

Time: 8am PT /11am ET

Sponsored by: Holzworth

Presented by: Bob Muro, Applications Group Manager


Today’s communication systems (e.g., 5G and Wi-Fi) utilize high-order modulation to achieve fast data rates. However, symbol errors can slow the data flow. When symbol errors exist, one potential source is poor phase noise of system local oscillators (LOs). To troubleshoot, engineers can utilize low phase noise synthesizers as an LO substitute or measure the LO’s phase noise. Similarly, the demands on radar systems have never been greater. One of the increasing threats are slow moving bad actors. Radars need low phase noise to avoid masking these signatures. This webinar will explain phase noise, the importance of low phase noise, and the tools to determine the phase noise of the LO’s you are using and the availability of low phase noise LO substitutes.
