USB Spectrum Analyzers and SignalVu-PC FAQ
This document contains answers to questions about the RSA306/306B, RSA500A and RSA600A USB spectrum analyzers, and their associated SignalVu-PC software.
Trouble-shooting Radio Links in Unlicensed Frequency Bands
Over the past decade there has been a dramatic increase in the population of wireless transmitters found in the world. The “Internet of Things” has fueled demand for low cost, easy to implement chipsets to enable wireless connectivity. Engineers today have a variety of wireless solutions to choose from such as Bluetooth, ZigBee and all the flavors of WiFi (802.11). These chipsets are attractive because they utilize unlicensed radio spectrum and many solutions are available with reference designs which have already achieved regulatory approval.
Speeding Through Wireless Standards
This Tutorial is designed to help you decide what to include in your test plan so that you ensure the product will pass regulatory certification and standard qualification. This guide will explain why pre-compliance testing for the wireless standard selected is needed.
Don’t Let EMI/EMC Compliance Certification Slow You Down
Pre-compliance testing is commonly used to catch compliance problems early and improve the probability of a successful first pass of full EMI compliance testing. Today, cost effective test solutions can easily be setup to quickly reduce your time-to-market. This white paper discusses what you will need to setup your own pre- compliance testing capability and useful tools for troubleshooting problems that you may uncover.
Low-cost EMI Pre-compliance Testing Using a Spectrum Analyzer
This application note describes how you can use a general-purpose spectrum analyzer to perform EMI pre-compliance checks for radiated emissions and conducted emissions, to help identify major issues before sending your design to a compliance lab. It describes measurement setups, spectrum analyzer settings, and includes measurement examples.
Improve Your Wireless and RF Classes with Live SignalsToday’s graduating electrical engineers need marketable skills which are typically not developed in undergraduate curricula. More and more educators see the value of utilizing more hands-on activities to improve a student’s understanding of communication concepts with live signals. The RSA306 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer and SignalVu-PC provide an affordable alternative to provide your students with theory and experience with live signals.
