Modern, Specialized Op Amps

Feb 23, 2016

By: Anthony Dimalanta, Applications Engineer   A typical listing of op amps for any manufacturer consists of dozens, sometimes hundreds of parts. Requirements for electronic designers are continuously evolving and the existence of so many op amps shows how varied they can be. Prioritizing any given specification will almost always result in a tradeoff somewhere

Digital signal analysis with high bandwidth of up to 500 MHz

Feb 16, 2016

Modern signal and spectrum analyzers can demodulate and analyze not only pure spectrum measurements but also complex modulated signals for wireless communications systems. The analysis bandwidth represents the maximum signal bandwidth that can be demodulated and is therefore an important performance feature of these analyzers. A high analysis bandwidth is also beneficial for measurements on

High definition oscilloscopes: signal analysis with 16-bit vertical resolution

Dec 22, 2015

For oscilloscopes, vertical resolution is increasingly being counted as a key parameter alongside other such as bandwidth, sampling rate and memory depth. This development is being driven by the heightened demand for more signal details in applications from the consumer goods sector as well as in medicine and R&D. The particular challenge here is to

Simplicity now available: measurements on automotive radars in all bands

Nov 17, 2015

The high resolutions of automotive radar sensors require signal bandwidths up to the gigahertz range. For this reason, frequency bands around 24 GHz and 79 GHz are provided for these applications. Up until now, harmonic mixers had to be used for test and measurement because no analyser was available that covered up to over 79 GHz in a
