Axiom Blog: Ease the Loads When Testing AC/DC Sources

Ease the Loads When Testing AC/DC Sources - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post that informs people about the versatility of an electronic load. When an AC or DC supply must be evaluated, during design or even for maintenance, an electronic load provides much needed capabilities. Electronic loads provide insights into how the power source behaves under different load conditions for AC or DC power sources. By keeping an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, power, or resistance fixed, it can measure voltage/current or power/resistance under constant-voltage (CV), constant-current (CC), constant-power (CP), and constant-resistance (CR) conditions. Starting the search for an electronic load usually begins by understanding an application's requirements, for AC or DC testing...

Spectrum Analyzers Check 5G Occupied Bandwidth

Axiom Blog: Spectrum Analyzers Check 5G Occupied Bandwidth - RF CafeAxiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company, has published a new blog post entitled "Spectrum Analyzers Check 5G Occupied Bandwidth" that informs people on how the right spectrum analyzers can help locate the interference of additional signal energy that can interfere with 5G service. With a suitable spectrum analyzer, occupied bandwidth measurements reveal the total integrated all signal energy within the bandwidths that concern 5G system designers, service providers, and users and when any interfering signals are at high enough power levels to be a concern. Selecting a spectrum analyzer for occupied bandwidth testing is a matter of matching the equipment's capabilities to the limits of the OBW measurements. An analyzer's frequency range and amplitude range are good starting points for 5G OBW measurements...

Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
