When measuring or troubleshooting digitally modulated systems, it is tempting to go directly to the digital demodulation tools. Making a random sequence of measurements on a system and watching for signs that something is wrong or questionable can produce useful results, but important things can be missed and a great deal of time wasted on unproductive or inefficient measurement approaches. A planned measurement sequence, the most reliable way to find the cause of signal problems, reduces the time it takes to isolate the root cause of a problem and mitigates the chances that other errors will be missed. This application note presents a planned measurement and troubleshooting sequence. From Agilent Technologies. Learn more.
