Coherent Test Signals for PNA Spectrum Analyzer Application


Jean-Pierre Teyssier

Date: Wednesday, March 01, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM – 11.30 AM
Location: E5:4106-4128


The new PNA Spectrum Analyzer option enables stimulus-response measurements of active devices (power amplifiers, mixers…) in a calibrated multiport network environment. The careful design of unequally-spaced multi-tones test signals allows the PNA to measure the maximum amount of linear and nonlinear information, including memory effects, in the minimum amount of time. Making the test signals coherent with the PNA analysis grid of the SA application makes the measurements even faster and even more accurate. This presentation will detail how the test signals are designed and how the PNA-SA advanced parameters are set in order to maximize the measurement accuracy and dynamic range.
