Testing S-Parameters on Pulsed Radar Power Amplifiers

This Application Note describes testing S-parameters under pulsed conditions with the R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer and either the ZVAX24 Extension unit with pulse modular option or the R&S®SMF signal generator with pulse modulator as a signal source. In addition a constant power level calibration for applications requiring high drive power for test and measurement of…

Automated Measurements of 77 GHz FMCW Radar Signals

Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar signals are often used in short range surveillance, altimeters and automotive radars in the 77-81 GHz band with 500 MHz of measurement bandwidth. To ensure proper functionality, signal quality measures such as frequency linearity are of great importance. This application note focuses on fully automated, fast and accurate measurements,…
