Demystifying Over-the-Air (OTA) Testing – Important Antenna Parameters, Test System Setup and Calibration

Future technologies and standards will make over-the-air (OTA) testing mandatory. Measurement requirements will change and engineers need a basic understanding of antennas and antenna measurements. But how to get ready for OTA testing? Learn more with our extensive white paper.

Using 90 Degree Hybrids as a Divider / Combiner for Combining High Power Amplifiers

High power amplifier combining has several unique challenges, this paper will show some of the advantages of using a complementary pair of 90-degree hybrids as the power dividing and combining network. In addition, advantages and tradeoffs this network configuration compared to the traditional in-phase networks will be detailed.

A Designer’s Primer on Internet of Things (IoT)

The Designer's Primer for IoT showcases recent advances in NI AWR software that help designers meet the challenges of developing cost-effective IoT solutions using a modular design approach that focuses on combining all the relevant components in the RF signal path.

Outphasing, Envelope & Doherty Transmitter Test & Measurement

The Outphasing, Doherty and Envelope architectures have been known for many decades. More recently, significant research and development effort has been directed at these schemes themselves and also variants that hybridize, or use two (or more) of these techniques. This document provides a starting reference, supported by working measurement examples.

Simplify Coexistence and Interference Testing for GNSS Receivers

The R&S®SMW200A GNSS simulator offers an easy and convenient way to test your receiver design against a wide variety of potential interferers and jammers. Test cases extend from simple coexistence simulations to complex interference scenarios with localized emitters.

Expanding VNA Capabilities

A non-blocking radio frequency (RF) matrix fits well with a traditional vector network analyzer (VNA) to save time, save money, and improve overall quality when performing RF characterization testing on multiple devices. In a non-blocking RF matrix, power dividers are used to distribute multiple RF input signals to multiple outputs simultaneously.
