New Technologies to Address Wideband Signal Generation and Analysis
Tue, February 14
Worldwide demand for wireless devices has been explosive, driving wireless providers to seek higher operating frequencies, wider transmission bandwidths, and innovative high-efficiency modulation techniques.
As applications migrate from crowded microwave bands to sparsely utilized mm-wave spectrum to accommodate wider-bandwidth modulation schemes and higher data rates, engineers must confront significant technical challenges, including difficult-to-achieve mm-wave power levels and RF power added efficiency (PAE), frequency and phase stability, and phase noise. Similarly, engineers must deal with amplitude and phase equalization across GHz-wide operating channels, digital modulation and demodulation performance, as revealed through parameters like Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) and Adjacent-Channel Power Ratio (ACPR).
This Webinar addresses the emerging challenges posed by wide band, high-frequency signal generation and analysis applications and explores cutting-edge Test & Measurement solutions like VSAs operating up to 86 GHz (without external mixers) and up to 2 GHz instantaneous bandwidth; and VSG’s combining real-time baseband coding with phase-locking for precise amplitude and phase control. Attendees will emerge with a better understanding of the challenges and trends driving wireless technologies, and the Test & Measurement community’s responses to them.
