Spectrum and Network Analyzers
With today’s rapid advances in radar technology, developing and manufacturing highly specialized and innovative electronic products to detect radar signals takes leading-edge technology and tools. Tektronix innovative test equipment reduces testinguncertainty during the design process and delivers confidence in the integrity of increasingly complex designs. Tektronix Arbitrary Waveform Generators, Real-time Spectrum Analyzers and High-Bandwidth Oscilloscopes offer the capabilities you need to manage the requirements of modern radar applications.
Flying drones can be fun. For RC and photography enthusiasts, a drone is a source of entertainment, and with a camera attached, provides breathtaking birds-eye views. For commercial and first responder purposes, a drone can be a valuable asset for information and increase productivity. However, when a drone is operating where it shouldn’t, the potential ramifications can be catastrophic and costly. For these situations, organizations need real-time, accurate, simple to operate and cost-effective solutions for detecting drones flying in or near restricted airspace. In this application note, we’ll discuss the basics for detecting a drone with a Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer and how networking multiple Spectrum Analyzers together can create an automated drone detection system with 24/7 monitoring capabilities.
Measuring the channel power of a pulsed RF signal using a real-time spectrum analyzer8/31/2020
Learn how to properly measure the Channel Power of a pulsed RF signal using a real-time spectrum analyzer. By properly setting up the analysis settings, the channel power of the RF pulse, as well as the average transmitted power over time, can easily and quickly be accurately measured. The technique shown applies to all RSAs - this includes the RSA306A/B Series, RSA500/600 Series and the RSA5000/6000/7000 Series.
