Lesson 1 - Channel Power


Learn more about RF test measurements, how to make RF power measurements and more in this course.

In this course, we'll explore how to easily make 9 essential RF power measurements. RF power measurements are essential to the characterization of any wireless device or system, whether you are creating a new design, verifying its performance, or testing it on the production line. In modern wireless communications, the ability to accurately measure the power of digitally modulated signals will enable you to maximize the capacity of a system and improve the quality of communication.

Who should take Radio Frequency (RF) Power Measurement Basics?

This course is designed for engineers that need to make RF power measurements to design, verify, and test their products. 
Manually making RF power measurements can be very complicated and time-consuming - but they don't have to be. This course will explore how to make one-touch power measurements of broadband signals using Keysight's X-Series signal analyzers and PowerSuite.

We'll cover:

  • Adjacent Channel Power (ACP)
  • Spurious Emissions
  • Spectrum Emissions Masks
  • Complementary Cumulative Distribution Function (CCDF)
  • Burst Power
  • Channel Power
  • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)
  • Occupied Bandwidth
  • Third Order Intercept (TOI)
