Generating and Analyzing 3 GPP Multicarrier Signals with High Dynamic Range

This application note describes three ways of generating multicarrier signals with high dynamic range for testing power amplifiers of 3GPP radio base stations. The corresponding sets of waveform (*.wv) files are delivered with this application note. The WinIQSIM™ software is used to download these files to the signal generator(s).Tips for optimizing spectrum analyzer settings in order to measure the Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR) are given.
