Understanding LTE-Advanced Base Station Transmitter RF Conformance Testing

LTE-Advanced is an evolutionary step forward in the continuing development of LTE. Specified as part of the 3GPP Release 10 standard, it was designed to deliver higher capacity with an...

Use a Twist and Other Popular Wires to Reduce EMI/RFI

A twist. "The Twist." A twisted pair. Alexander Graham Bell patented twisted-pair wires in 1881. Remarkably, we still use them because they work so well. In addition, today by harnessing...

Optimizing your Power Amplifier for Predistortion with RF PA Linearizer

This document provides guidelines for designing a power amplifier to achieve optimum performance with Maxim's radio frequency (RF) power amplifier (PA) linearizer (RFPAL) or other types of predistortion. Using RFPAL...

RF Sampling ADC With 800 MHz of IBW LTE

The family of ADC32RFx5 is a dual-channel 14-bit analog to digital converter (ADC) and provides 3 Gsps of ADC sample rate. This device has a total of 8 lane JESD204B...

Generating Multiple Phase Coherent Signals – Aligned in Phase and Time

Testing multi-antenna systems such as phased array or beamforming antennas requires a test system capable of providing multiple signals with constant phase relationships between them. The coherent test signals must...

Linear Circuit Devices for Applications in Battery Powered Wireless Systems

Conventional wisdom says smaller is better where battery operated wireless systems are concerned. Higher silicon integration and smaller package technology have shrunk system electronics to the point where system size...

Using a Transmitter and Receiver to Create a Transceiver

One application for Linx RF modules is to make a transceiver out of the separate transmitter and receiver modules. This allows for the bi-directional transfer of information while using low-cost...

Guidance on Selecting and Handling Coaxial RF Connectors

Coaxial connectors are a key component in RF and microwave applications. Their importance and contribution to overall system performance is sometimes overlooked. This application note focuses on coaxial connectors found...

Versatile RF Fading Simulator

Fading in the baseband of the R&S®SMW200A and R&S®SMU200A signal generators or R&S®AMU200A base band generator is well proven and widely accepted for testing i.e. mobile radio standards as well...

Optimizing VCO PLL Evaluations & PLL Synthesizer Designs

Today’s mobile communications systems demand higher communication quality, higher data rates, higher frequency operation, and more channels per unit bandwidth. As much of this equipment is portable, low power consumption...
