Focus where it counts

Missions evolve but one thing stays the same: the need to protect those who go in harm's way. Success depends on a changing mix of people and technology. As technology becomes more complex, assuring readiness gets tougher.

Keysight is a source of assurance that your mission will succeed. Through our expertise in measurement science and test processes, we give you more time for the bigger issues: fulfilling today's mission and managing the transition to what comes next. By helping you build greater assurance in system readiness, Keysight frees you to focus where it counts most.

Improved Methods for Measuring Distortion in Broadband Devices - Application Note 
This paper illustrates that, in broadband commercial and defense systems, it is more important than ever to characterize them for non-linearity. It is also important to understand the mechanisms that create these non-linearities and the characteristics of the waveforms that cause them. We focus on the primary tests used to determine the level of a system’s distortion products and how they result in Intermodulation Distortion (IMD) and Intermodulation Distortion Noise (IMDN). Looking at the method to evaluate the effect of IMD in a communication system under real data traffic conditions, Noise Power Ratio (NPR), we see measures of the IMD as a function of data traffic conditions in a wideband or multi-channel communications channel.
