Attenuator verification using a spectrum analyzer and tracking generator

October 11, 2019

In this video, we show how to quickly and easily check the attenuation value of an attenuator using the tracking generator on a SIGLENT SVA1015X spectrum and vector network analyzer. This technique also applies to the SSA3000X series of products.   There is also an application note here: Attenuator Verification  

VSWR measurement with a SIGLENT SVA1015X

October 11, 2019

In this video, we use a SIGLENT SVA1015X spectrum and vector network analyzer with optional VNA function to measure the VSWR curves for the input and output of an RF Amplifier. This technique is helpful for functional verification of known devices as well as characterization of unknown devices.
