Passive-intermodulation (PIM) performance is essential to the successful operation of many wireless communications systems, although it typically must be tested with a number of fairly high-level test tones.
Intermodulation distortion (IMD) is an important consideration in microwave and RF component design. This application note discusses the meaning of the IMD measurement and measurement considerations....More
The RF/microwave industry as a whole looks forward to the annual IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) not only for its excellent collection of technical papers and workshops, but for the opportunity to see old friends and prowl the exhibition floor in search of new products and to eyeball what competitors are showing....More
Spectrum analyzers are extremely versatile and useful test instruments that have long been used to study RF/microwave signals. The display screen has often served as a “window on a wireless world,” allowing users to capture and identify different signals within a bandwidth of interest....More
In case you forgot or are just new to microwave, IMS is the International Microwave Symposium, the annual Microwave Week conference and exhibition put on by the IEEE’s Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S)....More
A line of real-time spectrum analyzers includes models spanning 100 kHz to 27 GHz with real-time bandwidths as large as 100 MHz for instantaneous viewing of continuous, pulsed, modulated, and frequency-hopped signals....More
