Phase Noise Measurement up to 50 GHz with High Dynamic Range

This application note describes how to configure the signal source analyzer R&S FSUP for highest dynamic range phase noise measurement in the microwave frequency range up to 50 GHz. It compares performance in terms of phase noise sensitivity using an additional internal down converter versus an external down converter or a frequency divider. Both methods are described and differences are shown.
