      Eric Hsu 2019.05.30

      Signal generators produce the signals that you need ranging from simple to complex, and from pure to dirty, to test your design. You use signal generators as a local oscillator (LO), a golden transmit

      Confronting Measurement Uncertainty in Signal Generation - Part 4: I/Q Impairments

      Eric Hsu 2019.05.23

      In previous posts, I discussed the source of errors in a baseband generator and strategies for eliminating these errors such as waveform phase discontinuity, interpolation overshoot, and sampling imag

      Eric Hsu 2019.05.15

      In the digital world, a digital electronic system that is designed to process signals does not treat the signals continuously as they are in reality. Instead, the system uses “sample” to indicate the

      Confronting Measurement Uncertainty in Signal Generation - Part 2: Interpolation Overshoot

      Eric Hsu 2019.05.07

      It is common to find a gap between ideal conditions and reality. When you generate the desired signal, you need to understand that hardware implementation may cause a certain number of errors to the o

      Confronting Measurement Uncertainty in Signal Generation - Part 1: Waveform Phase Discontinuity

      Eric Hsu 2019.05.02

      Test equipment characterizes design performance and verifies devices under test function. To be effective, test equipment must outperform the devices under test. Minimizing measurement uncertainty att
