  1. Application Note: Stumbling across a good reason why you need a Check Standard

    Video below shows some hints & tips - even a real-life problem solved by the Check Standard! It’s all well and good performing the calibration even if you are a seasoned user of VNA’s. But it is good practice to check your calibration afterwards. https://www.youtube.com/embed/dlMYyY37TCI To speak with one of our Sales & Applications Engineers please call 01582 764334 or click here to email.

  2. Application Note: Pico VNA Calibration Introduction

    Introducing basic VNA measurements and considerations when testing RF Devices: How do I test my device if the connectors are different genders or if my RF test leads have different genders? Do I need to add an adapter into my calibration set-up? Can I get around this problem? How about when I’ve made my calibration, can I check that is...

  3. Generating and Measuring Communications Signals with the Proteus AWT

    Creating and analyzing signals with Proteus and MATLAB takes a few simple steps. In this application note we show how to generate and receive a WLAN beacon signal at 2.4GHz in the instruments’ first Nyquist Zone. The code can easily be modified to create a signal in the second Nyquist zone, all the way up to the WiFi-6 frequency extension...

  4. Application Note: Proteus Radar Target Simulator

    This document describes how to implement a Radar Target Simulator/Generator using the Tabor Electronics’ Proteus AWT (Arbitrary Waveform Transceiver). The Proteus AWT RTS system is a configuration of the Proteus AWT that is design to receives a signal from the Radar under test and performs real time calculations in its internal FPGA to simulate a moving target. High level FPGA...

  5. EMC…What is it?

    Wikipedia definition:Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the ability of electrical equipment and systems to function acceptably in their electromagnetic environment, by limiting the unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy which may cause unwanted effects such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) or even physical damage in operational equipment. The goal of EMC is the correct operation of different equipment in a...

  6. Re-defining Analog Signal Generation

    If you require multiple signals for characterising components such as amplifiers, mixers and ADC’s or want to drive multiple LO’s with excellent phase coherence for multiple antenna systems then the Tabor Lucid multi-channel Series will be the ideal product. The Benchtop version of the Lucid series offers up to 12GHz of frequency range, 4 phase coherent channels, a 5” touch...

  7. SXRTO Oscilloscopes Explained

    Pico Technology have launched their latest 5 GHz SXRTO Sampler Extended Real Time Oscilloscope, but what is SXRTO. Learn more about the benefits and cost savings compared to Real Time Oscilloscopes, RTO below. The real-time oscilloscope Real-time oscilloscopes (RTOs) are designed with a high enough sampling rate to capture a transient, non-repetitive signal with the instrument’s specified analogue bandwidth. According...

  8. What is an FFT Spectrum Analyser?

    FFT Spectrum Analysers, such as the SRS SR760, SR770, SR780 and SR785, take a time varying input signal, like you would see on an oscilloscope trace, and compute its frequency spectrum. Fourier's theorem states that any waveform in the time domain can be represented by the weighted sum of sines and cosines.The FFT spectrum analyser samples the input signal, computes...

  9. EMC Pre-Compliance Testing

    Electronic products can emit unwanted electromagnetic radiation, or electromagnetic interference (EMI). Regulatory agencies create standards that define the allowable limits of EMI over specific frequency ranges. Testing designs and products for compliance to these standards can be difficult and expensive, but there are tools and techniques that can help to minimise the cost of testing and help to enable designs...

  10. About Lock-In Amplifiers

    Lock-in amplifiers are used to detect and measure very small AC signals, all the way down to a few nanovolts. Accurate measurements may be made even when the small signal is obscured by noise sources many thousands of times larger. Lock-in amplifiers use a technique known as phase-sensitive detection to single out the component of the signal at a specific...
