Multicarrier group delay measurements using the R&S®FSW signal and spectrum analyzer

Demonstration of group delay measurements with the R&S®FSW signal and spectrum analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz. The R&S®FSW-K17 option performs group delay measurements – relative and absolute group delay – for example on amplifiers and frequency converting devices (mixers) over a wide analysis bandwidth using a multicarrier signal.

Linearization of RF Frontends

Amongst other topics, this White Paper, (i) proposes a classification of Linearization schemes, (ii) introduces the hard limiter, (iii) illustrates linearization of an exemplary mmWave PA using non-DPD techniques, and (iv) introduces a class of linearized transmitters that create their signal and linearity from efficiently generated components.

Antenna Basics

This white paper describes the basic functionality of antennas. Starting with Hertz’s Antenna model followed by a short introduction to the fundamentals of wave propagation, the important general characteristics of an antenna and its associated parameters are explained. A more detailed explanation of the functionality of some selected antenna types concludes this white paper.
