RF Component Pocket Guide

In RF design, the key specifications of active and passive components must be clearly understood to ensure that the system meets the requirements of the specific application. This guide gives an overview of important parameters and measurements for active and passive components.

Characterization of Satellite Frequency Up-converters

This application note describes methods using an R&S®ZVA Network Analyzer, one or two R&S®SMB100A Signal Generators and an R&S®FSW Signal Analyzer to accurately measure all the key parameters of frequency converters with embedded local oscillator. A commercial satellite up-converter is used as a device under test example.
