Design of a Complete RF Downconverter Module
March 18, 2020 -- El Segundo, California -- Cadence| AWR has published a
white paper entitled "Design
of a Complete RF Downconverter Module for Test Equipment." RF / microwave modules integrate diverse
technologies to address the challenge of developing cost-effective radio circuitry
for low- to medium-volume production commonly used in T&M equipment and aerospace
/ defense applications. This white paper describes the design and simulation of
a complete downconverter module used in spectrum analyzer test equipment. The example
module and its constituent parts demonstrate a top−down / bottom−up approach using
circuit- and system-level analyses.
What: RF/microwave modules integrate diverse technologies to
provide high-performance, integrated functionality for low- to medium-volume production
commonly used in test and measurement (T&M) equipment and aerospace/defense
applications. A new AWR Design Environment white paper describes the design and
simulation of a complete downconverter module used in spectrum analyzer test equipment.
The example module and its constituent parts demonstrate a top-down/bottom-up approach
using circuit- and system-level analyses.
