Modern VNA Solutions Improve On-wafer Measurement Efficiency

In this white paper we look at the impact of calibration downtime during on-wafer testing and discuss how recent advances enable longer time periods between calibrations.

Complex Modulation Generation with Low Cost AWG

Read this white paper to learn how the Agilent 33500B Series Trueform waveform generators can be applied to generate today's complex modulated signals. These Trueform waveform generators offer a very cost-effective solution for generating many modern, complex, baseband IQ digital communication signals and digital wireless protocols like W-CDMA, DVB and OFDM.

Solutions for GNSS Receiver Testing

This application note is designed to help you get insight into solving tough measurement problems in a unique way for both the design and manufacturing environments by explaining how to use simulated satellite signals to quickly and accurately verify GNSS receiver operation.

 

The successful proliferation of GNSS receiv­ers worldwide requires today’s engineers to effectively test GNSS receivers with multi-GNSS signals. A real-time GNSS simulator like the N7609B, with its flexibility, func­tionality and performance is well suited to address this task. Combined with the power of an EXG/MXG X-Series signal generator, it provides the real-time simulation of GPS, GLONASS and Galileo L1/E1 signals that is so critical to quickly and accurately testing today’s GNSS receivers.
