The growing demand for high-speed digital applications calls for increases across the board for greater system bandwidth and faster signal edge speeds, as well as smaller and more efficient chipset and component design.

In turn, these developments also result in greater complexity for PCB layouts, challenging high bandwidth probes to meet the performance levels required at greater speeds. This blog post takes a look at the issues involved when selecting probes suitable for high speed digital applications, and what obstacles designers may face.

Vector Network analyzers (VNAs) are an essential part of RF testing, as they allow designers to assess signal parameters and measure the performance of components and circuits across a variety of complex systems.

With a wide variety of analytical functions available across different models of vector network analyzers, they enable a number of components to be tested in detail — from high end VNAs that allow for amplifier and mixer measurements, to affordable handheld devices that provide support for spectrum analysis and power measurements.

As technologies evolve to meet demand for next generation products and systems, the ability to perform testing and monitoring on these systems must advance too. Vector signal generators (abbreviated VSG and sometimes referred to as digital signal generators) have become an increasingly significant tool in the testing and measuring field due to the increasing complexity of waveforms. The growing complexity of radio, wireless, and cellular technologies depends on signals that cannot be produced by the pulse and signal generators of the past. Technologies such as WiFi, GPS, LTE, and many more have become mainstays in everyday life and, because of this, the ability to produce these unique and complex waveforms has become imperative to the testing and measuring industry.

An important tool in signal measuring is tracking correlation. Using an oscilloscope and checking for correlation in a wavelength, you can parse out a signal from noise, compare frequency of two signals, measure delay between two signals – the tracking and subsequent application of correlation measurement is nearly endless. In this oscilloscope tutorial, we’re going to run you through the process of measuring correlation with an oscilloscope.
