8 Errors Common to Spectrum Analysis

Application Notes

Spectrum analysis is essential for understanding the frequency domain characteristics of components, circuits, and systems, but these instruments and their measurements are not foolproof. In fact, eight common mistakes plague the accuracy and effectiveness of spectrum analyzer measurements. These errors can lead to improperly adjusting a device under test (DUT) or shipping a device to a customer that has not met its required specifications. Luckily, some simple guidelines can be followed to ensure that the spectrum analyzer (also called a signal analyzer) is used properly and is performing to expectations.
