Webinar Overview

The traditional key requirements for RF power measurements for wireless chipset or power amplifier manufacturing are good repeatability, fast measurement speed, and high accuracy. Now, an emerging requirement is becoming increasingly important: obtaining a wide power measurement range, especially at lower power levels. This new requirement is due to the emergence of chipsets designed to handle a wider power range in order to support higher data throughput and wider coverage area. In this webcast, we will discuss typical power measurement test setup for wireless chipset or power amplifier manufacturing and explain the recommended sensor’s settings based on different signal formats, including a new average mode time-selectivity measurement for LTE signals. These setups will help you achieve the fastest measurement speed and most accurate power measurement over the widest power range. The webcast concludes with a brief overview of Keysight Technologies new U2040 X-Series power sensors, which have the world’s widest dynamic range of 96 dB.

Engineers and technicians involved in the design or use of wireless test systems and chipsets that involve power measurements. Learn about the latest power sensor from Keysight that is fast, accurate, and has the dynamic range to cover virtually all power measurement needs in wireless applications.
