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
In this video, we show you the new touchscreen, USB Mouse/Keyboard control, and power-on-line feature for the SIGLENT SVA1015X.
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
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.
