Understanding and Selecting Power Sensors
Application Note Overview
A power sensor is a fundamental measurement tool in RF engineering. However, today's marketplace is filled with myriad choices, and many are making bold claims about attributes such as measurement speed and readings per second. As a result, it can be difficult to cut through the hyperbole and determine which sensor will actually meet the requirements of a specific measurement.
In this application note from Rohde & Schwarz, explore the basics of RF power sensors and key characteristics that will help you select the best one for each application.
