EMC Precompliance with a Real Time Spectrum Analyzer Part 1 — What Is EMC/EMI And EMC Precompliance?

July 22nd, 2016

What Is EMC-EMI And EMC Precompliance
This is the first post in a series where we take a look at EMI and EMC precompliance using real time spectrum analyzers. Virtually every electronic device, and many non-electronic and natural phenomenon, produce electromagnetic radiation. This radiation can, intentionally or otherwise, interfere with proper electronics operation—electromagnetic interference (EMI). Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the study […]Read More

Practical Real Time Spectrum Analyzer Applications Part 3 — Capturing Digital Signals with RTSAs and Vector Signal Analysis Tools

June 23rd, 2016

Capturing Digital Signals with RTSAs
This is the third and final post in a multi-part blog series where we take a look at a few practical applications of spectrum analyzers. All wireless telecommunication signals undergo modulation in order to impart a data stream within the RF/microwave carrier. Many modern devices rely on digital modulation techniques in order to efficiently transfer […]Read More
