In part 12 of Resolving the Signal, we look at a power-supply noise design example to discuss which supplies are most critical when trying to increase a system's PSR. From that example, we offer best practices to maintain low power-supply noise and debugging tips for a system's overall noise performance.

Part 11 of the Resolving the Signal series explores how power supplies contribute to unwanted noise, how to measure and quantify that noise, and how noise ends up impacting system performance.

Systems that incorporate highly integrated and highly sophisticated, high power radio frequency (RF) GaN power amplifiers (PAs), such as pulsed radar applications, are a constant challenge for today’s digital control and management systems to keep up with these ever-increasing levels of sophistication.

Integrated RF agile transceivers are not only widely employed in software-defined radio (SDR) architectures in cellular telephone base stations, such as multiservice distributed access system (MDAS) and small cell, but also for wireless HD video transmission for industrial, commercial, and military applications, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

This video demonstrates how the R&S RTO-K40 option can be used to measure response times of front end components such as power amplifiers (PA) and switches controlled by the MIPI RFFE control interface.
