Boost measurement integrity in RF/microwave systems

Keywords:RF? microwave? test systems?

Even though most RF and microwave test systems measure devices within a few wide categoriesamplifiers, transmitters, receiversevery individual system faces a unique set of circumstances, requirements and challenges. As unique as each situation may be, three universal factors interact when you define any RF and microwave test system: performance, speed and repeatability. Within the unique situation each system developer faces, the ability to make trade-offs between these factors is one key to achieving the required level of measurement integrity.

Opportunities to manage these trade-offs can occur at many points along the pathways between the device under test (DUT) and the measurement instruments. This application note suggests a framework for those trade-offs and offers six sets of hints that address common problems that may exist along RF signal pathways.
