In this video, we introduce techniques for inspecting, cleaning, and evaluating the quality of RF cables and connectors. We also introduce a simple method of determining the quality and stability of a cable using a vector network analyzer (VNA) to perform an S11 measurement and open, short, load calibration.
In this video, Dr. Min Zhang from Mach One Design EMC consulting demonstrates the accuracy of his conducted noise pre-compliance test set-up, consisting of a Siglent spectrum analyzer, a Tekbox TBOH01 LISN, EMCview software, and a shielded tent and compares it to results from an accredited compliance lab. Chapters: 0:00 Automotive Conducted Emission Test Set-up … Continued
In this video, Robert Feranec and Min Zhang introduce common design decisions that can influence the EMI generated and solutions to the most common problems.
In this video, Min Zhang of Mach One Design demonstrates how to perform a conducted emission pre-compliance EMC test for a mains-powered home appliance product. A step-by-step guide to set the test up, benchmark the test results, and use Tekbox EMCview software to achieve highly efficient spectrum scanning. For EMC, power converter, motor drive, and … Continued
Viewing demodulated audio can be important when troubleshooting a transmitter. In this video, I demodulate an FM radio station using a SIGLENT spectrum analyzer and view the output signal on an oscilloscope.
In this video, we use the Distance-to-Fault (DTF) function available on the SIGLENT SVA1000X Spectrum and Vector Network Analyzer instruments to test a few sections of coaxial cabling. DTF uses frequency domain reflectometry (FDR) to highlight impedance differences along a length of cable. This can be used to determine the distance to adapters, faults, and … Continued
In this video, we introduce you to LXI Tools, an open-source instrument programming and control application that has a small footprint and excellent performance. It works seamlessly with a variety of SIGLENT products, including SDSX and XE scopes, SDGX generators, and SDM DMMs. Special thanks to Martin Lund and the other developers of LXI … Continued
In this video, EMI Guru Ken Wyatt (@EMI_Guru) shows the radiated emissions caused by pigtailed connections
In this video, EMI Guru Ken Wyatt (@EMI_Guru) shows how to use Near-Field probes and a spectrum analyzer to troubleshoot component/board level EMI issues.
In this slide show, we briefly cover the basics of spectral analysis using a swept superheterodyne receiver. We then discuss various settings and controls to help you use your SIGLENT SSA more effectively. Spectrum Analyzer Basics
