Wideband Complex Modulation Analysis Using a Real-Time Digital Demodulator
Wide bandwidth modulation is becoming more common in communications. The emergence of standards such as the 802.11ac has extended the modulation bandwidth to 160 MHz which requires very wide band measurement equipment to measure. This session will present the details of a measurement method that uses a real time digital down converter and post processing software that measures the performance of this signal.
What will you learn?
- Modulation basics
- Measuring complex modulation
- Measurement challenges for Wideband Signals
- Measurement example: 802.11ac
