Design of a Complete RF Downconverter Module for Test Equipment

RF/microwave modules, often referred to as “hybrids,” integrate functional blocks used to transmit and/or receive radio signals. These hybrid circuits combine different technologies, including monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs)/RFICs, discrete field-effect transistors (FETs), and passive devices attached to substrates such as alumina or FR4, which contain circuit traces and distributed components, all within a single housing or enclosure.

Analyze Pulse Width Modulated Signals

Pulse width modulation (PWM) is a commonplace technique for efficiently driving switched mode supplies at a fixed frequency. This applies to many types of power supplies in industrial control systems, power electronics and digital communications.

BAE Systems MATRICs™ Transceiver

The MATRICs™ Transceiver is poised to cross over from defense applications to commercial markets with the latest non-ITAR version. The ultra-wideband reconfigurable transceiver system on a chip has immediate applications as a software defined radio prototyping platform for commercial RF/mm-Wave applications, including 5G FR2 and point 2 points links.

Improving T/R Module Test Accuracy and Throughput

This white paper provides an overview of the basic building blocks of a phased array system and discusses how the nature of their design leads to a challenging test environment.

What’s Best? Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) or 5G?

5G and Wi-Fi 6 are two key enablers of next generation wireless connectivity. These technologies will help allow our mobile devices to connect ubiquitously to each other, our automobiles, machines and the wireless world around us. This paper covers the impact of both these technologies in the next generation wireless ecosystem and how Wi-Fi fits in with 3G/4G/5G and other IoT technologies.

Impedance Measurements for Power Delivery Networks

Impedance measurements with vector network analyzers require maximum precision. The R&S®ZNL Vector Network Analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz is able to characterize a broad range of impedances with the lowest uncertainty among its competitors in the same class. It is a 3-in1 allrounder. Get more insights and register for our content.

Your Guide to Sprinting Across the 5G Finish Line First

5G introduces test challenges related to massive MIMO, mmWave frequencies, and over-the-air (OTA) test. In Keysight's latest eBook, Making 5G Work, you will learn how to: • Accelerate 5G designs • Pass conformance testing • Speed up device carrier acceptance test • Reduce 5G manufacturing test times and costs

SkySafe Defeats Drone Threats with Open-Source SDR

With the emergence of highly capable, low-cost, wirelessly controlled drones, bad actors can easily execute disruptive operations, such as airport intrusions or surveillance abuse. Read how SkySafe rapidly prototyped and deployed a cutting-edge software defined radio (SDR)-based drone defense system on USRP, delivering industry-leading capability faster and at a much lower cost to the government.
