    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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Key Characteristics of Signal Generators and Modulation Methods

Rohde & Schwarz Offers Free RF Signal Generator Pocket Guide - RF CafeAugust 17, 2018 - Rohde & Schwarz USA (R&S USA) is now offering this free "Key Characteristics of Signal Generators and Modulation Methods: Pocket Guide." Register for this pocket guide to receive fundamental information on analog and digital modulation methods. The Pocket Guide is available as a spiral bound hard copy (no PDF for download at this time). The guide also provides important signal generator specifications and parameters that should be considered when choosing a signal generator.

This is another in a series of Pocket Guides being offered by R&S. The "RF Component Pocket Guide," introduced earlier this year, is still available.

Rohde & Schwarz also has a downloadable PDF file titled, "Modulation and Signal Generation with R&S® Signal Generators Educational Note Products." Signal generators play a vital role in electrical test and measurement. They generate the test signals that are applied to components such as filters and amplifier, or even to entire modules, in order to ascertain and test their behavior and characteristic s. The first part of this educational note presents the applications for and the most important types of signal generators. This is followed by a description of the construction and functioning of analog and vector signal generators. To permit a better understanding of the specifications found on data sheets, a closer look at the most important parameters for a signal generator is provided.

Modulation and Signal Generation with R&S® Signal Generators Educational Note - RF CafeBeyond the output of spectrally pure signals, a key function of RF signal generators is the generation of analog - and digitally modulated signals. The second part of this note therefore presents the fundamentals for the most significant analog and digital modulation methods.

The third part of this educational note contains exercises on the topics of analog and digital modulation. All described measurements were performed using the R&S ® SMBV100A vector signal generator and the R&S ® FSV spectrum analyzer. "
