July 3, 2023 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post that helps users find a spectrum analyzer with the functionality needed to simplify interference hunting in a desired frequency range. The growing number of wireless applications and signals creates increased opportunities for interference when signals are not properly monitored. When interference does take place, it degrades system performance and inevitably must be detected and eliminated. This requires spectrum monitoring and interference hunting with the right tools and the best equipment for that job is the spectrum analyzer.

With a spectrum or signal analyzer teamed with a suitable antenna, it is usually possible to detect and measure a source of RF interference. By measuring as many as the signals within a frequency range of interest, such as around 2.4 GHz for Bluetooth and wireless local area network (WLAN) signals and any additional, unwanted signals, potential interference can be detected and displayed with a spectrum analyzer. At present, higher frequencies are being employed for applications such as automotive radars and Fifth Generation (5G) cellular wireless communications networks.

The trick is finding a spectrum analyzer with the performance and functionality to speed and simplify interference hunting in a desired frequency range. To learn more read the full blog post on Axiom’s website: https://www.axiomtest.com/blog/Spectrum-Analyzers-Help-Find-Harmful-Interference/

Spectrum Analyzers Help Find Harmful Interference

Frequency spectrum is filling steadily with growing numbers of wireless devices. Many of the wireless devices operate within short distances at narrow frequency bands, such as Bluetooth and wireless local are network (WLAN) equipment. However, as more users make wireless cellular radios their principal telephones, longer-distance wireless applications, including satellite communications (satcom) systems, are occupying more of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum. Cellular communications networks are evolving from Fourth Generation (4G) technology to Fifth Generation (5G) technology and higher frequencies, well into the millimeter-wave frequency range above 24 GHz.

This growing number of wireless applications and signals creates increased opportunities for interference when signals are not properly monitored. When interference does take place, it degrades system performance and inevitably must be detected and eliminated. This requires spectrum monitoring and interference hunting with the right tools and the best equipment for that job is the spectrum analyzer. With a spectrum or signal analyzer teamed with a suitable antenna, it is usually possible to detect and measure a source of RF interference. In addition, with a portable unit running on battery power, it can be carried close enough to the source of the interference for accurate and repeatable measurements. The trick is finding a spectrum analyzer with the performance and functionality to speed and simplify interference hunting in a desired frequency range.

Spectrum analyzers employ several methods to find signals. They may operate as superheterodyne receivers that mix inputs with a tunable local oscillator (LO) and then process the resulting lower-frequency intermediate-frequency (IF) signals for their content. This type of spectrum analyzer is well suited for detecting continuous-wave (CW) signals but can miss on and off intermittent signals if they are not present when the analyzer tunes past that section of spectrum. The other main type of spectrum analyzer, the real-time analyzer (RTA), relies on analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) to digitize sections of spectrum and detect CW as well as short-term spurious and pulsed signals...

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
