Average and Peak Power Testing in the Field with the FieldFox

Application Notes

This application note will discuss techniques for measuring average and peak power and the associated equipment options available for field testing. As there is a range of instrument types that can measure power, this application note will focus on the two most widely employed RF/microwave instruments, namely, the power sensor and the spectrum analyzer. Measurement examples will include signals such as CW, pulsed and digitally modulated waveforms. It is important to understand the accuracy and limitations of each instrument including factors that can affect the instruments’ performance in the field. Comparisons between different power sensors and spectrum analyzers will be presented.
