Vector Network Analyzers - Get Started with the Fundamentals
January 8, 2019 - Rohde & Schwarz USA (R&S
USA) - Every month we put together a few resources intended to help you tackle your latest
EMC test challenge. This month, we focus on two very different topics. "The value of
pre-selection in EMC Measurements" which is an often misunderstood or underestimated
concept, and "Going Beyond the Basics to Ensure Successful Immunity Tests" which covers
the ins and outs of what to look for when working with and selecting an EMC amplifier.
"The Value of Pre-Selection in EMC Measurements" webinar describes
differences in the pre-selection architectures of spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers
will be covered with an emphasis on why they are different. To drive home the value of
pre-selection, videos showing different measurement results with and without pre-selection
will be shown and discussed.
Going Beyond the Basics to Ensure Successful Immunity Tests
Broadband amplifiers are used to generate the high field strengths required by EMC
radiated immunity testing standards. Although output power and frequency range are the
two most important specifications used in selecting an EMC amplifier, the overall performance
of an amplifier is often strongly affected by additional internal and external factors.
This webinar focuses on the basics and intricacies of immunity testing, a technical overview
of EMC amplifiers as well as a practical discussion of how amplifier class, compression
points, VSWR, foldback, etc. impact amplifier performance in real-world scenarios.
The Value of Pre-Selection in EMC Measurements
Pre-Selection is an often misunderstood concept, especially with both spectrum analyzers
and EMC receivers using the term in different contexts. This Webinar will review how
the standards reference pre-selection, both CISPR and MIL-STD461. The differences in
the pre-selection architectures of spectrum analyzers and EMC receivers will be covered
with an emphasis on why they are different. To drive home the value of pre-selection,
videos showing different measurement results with and without pre-selection will be shown

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas
and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available
