Higher data rates and more complex modulation schemes are requiring digital engineers to take into account the analog and RF performance of the channels to a much greater degree than in the past.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/white-papers/guide-making-rf-measurements-signal-integrity-applications" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/white-papers/guide-making-rf-measurements-signal-integrity-applications#comments Military Defense Electronics White Papers Test & Measurement Tue, 21 Mar 2017 13:31:00 +0000 9841 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Mobile Device and Application Testing: Replacing the Live Network http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/mobile-device-and-application-testing-replacing-live-network <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Anritsu </div> <div class="node-body article-body">This paper describes the various methods of device testing available to mobile device application developers and how one of them, network simulation, offers valuable types of information not available from any other test method.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/mobile-device-and-application-testing-replacing-live-network" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/mobile-device-and-application-testing-replacing-live-network#comments Military Defense Electronics White Papers Test & Measurement Fri, 03 Feb 2017 21:06:00 +0000 9831 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Measurement of Radar Cross Section Using the VNA Master Handheld VNA http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/measurement-radar-cross-section-using-vna-master-handheld-vna <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Anritsu </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Radar cross section RCS is the measure of an object's ability to reflect radar signal in the direction of the radar receiver i.e. it is the measure of the ratio of backscatter per steradian (unit solid angle) in the direction of the radar (from the target) to the power density that is intercepted by the target. This application note describes how a modern battery-powered / portable Microwave Vector Network Analyzer with Time Domain Gating can make it easy to do RCS tests on the flight line or in the field.</div> <p><a href="http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/measurement-radar-cross-section-using-vna-master-handheld-vna" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/test-measurement/measurement-radar-cross-section-using-vna-master-handheld-vna#comments Military Defense Electronics White Papers Test & Measurement Tue, 31 Jan 2017 17:17:00 +0000 9791 at http://defenseelectronicsmag.com Understanding Vector Network Analysis http://defenseelectronicsmag.com/military-defense-electronics/understanding-vector-network-analysis <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Anritsu </div> <div class="node-body article-body">In this 62 page understanding guide we will introduce the basic fundamentals of the Vector Network Analyzer (VNA).
