Lesson 1 - Building a Solid Foundation in RF

 

In this course, we'll will explore key signal generator specifications and why they are critical to your measurement applications.

To understand your device’s characteristics, you need to simulate clean or dirty test signals to test your design. Knowing the performance of your signal generators is the first step to making accurate and consistent measurements.

Who should take The ABCs of Signal Generators?

This course is designed for engineers that need to make RF receivers and components measurements to design, characterize, and test their products. Signal generators provide precise, highly stable test signals for a variety of components and system test applications. Knowing the capabilities and performance of your signal generators is the first step to make accurate and consistent measurements.

We'll cover:

  • What’s a signal generator
  • Output power
  • Frequency and amplitude accuracy
  • Spectral purity
  • Modulation quality
  • Measurement speed
  • Distortion performance
