Spectrum Analysis

Test Description

Through the use of the spectrum analyzer, and where necessary signal synthesizers, device output behavior as a function of frequency is measured. Non-linear behavior of devices can be determined by measuring the 1-dB compression point (P1dB), the third-order intermodulation distortion (IMD) and the conversion losses of mixers and other frequency conversion devices.


Principal Equipment Involved

  • DC Power Supplies
  • Agilent E4448A PSA spectrum analyzer
  • Agilent E8257D PSG signal synthesizer
  • Anritsu Power meter (optional)
