Choosing the Right Mixed-Signal Test Equipment News & Analysis 10/30/2002 Post a comment Today's high-speed, mixed-signal measurements challenge the capabilities of traditional test equipment. Agilent's Dave Sontag describes three different mixed-signal analysis solutions that provide time-correlated views of both analog and digital data, along with the strengths and weaknesses of each one.
Evaluating Performance Tradeoffs in a Dual-Mode, W-CDMA/EDGE Digital IF Receiver Design How-To 10/7/2002 Post a comment The need for and use of multi-band phones is rapidly increasing. Agilent EEsof EDA's Kal Kalbasi examines performance tradeoffs in a dual-mode phone that supports both the Wideband Code Division Multiple
Access (W-CDMA 3GPP) and Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) standards. Kal also discusses the use of Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) measurements as an alternative to BER for faster simulations of receiver front-end performance.
