Well defined pulses like these are a rarity in the real world.
Never Miss a Pulse Wednesday, December 2, 2020
The RF pulse characteristics of a radar reveal a great deal about a its capability. Electronic Warfare (EW) and Electronic lntelligence (ELINT) experts specialize in the study of these pulsed signals. Pulse characteristics provide valuable information about the type of radar producing a signal and what its source might be; sailboat, battleship, passenger plane, bomber, missile, etc. But how do you …
Remotely Measure and Analyze 32 Oscilloscope Channels with MultiScope Wednesday, November 25, 2020
Remember in Power Rangers when each of the rangers’ mechs would come together to form the Megazord? We have a new software feature that functions similarly for our oscilloscopes.  On their own our 5 and 6 Series oscilloscopes can each have 8 channels. But if you connect four 8-channel scopes through our Multi-Scope software, you can view, control, and analyze data in real-time from 32 channels. 4 …

3 Ways to Generate Radar Signals with Arbitrary Waveform Generators Friday, October 30, 2020
Radar signals’ qualities make them inherently difficult to recreate with a signal generator. Their combination of carrier frequency, modulation bandwidth, and in most cases, their pulsed nature creates a series of requirements difficult to match with existing instrumentation. The increasing complexity of radar systems, the growing use of complex modulation techniques such as Barker codes, poly …
AWG70000B can be used for RF environment simulation
Recreating Real-World Chaos with Arbitrary Waveform Generators Friday, October 16, 2020
When testing complex electronic warfare and wireless communications systems, engineers and researchers need the flexibility to accurately recreate real-world signals. Unfortunately, the real world is messy, and its RF landscape can change rapidly from moment to moment. Thus, engineers often need to cycle through fast-changing signals quickly. With this need in mind, we’ve introduced new Streaming …
Tektronix engineers who developed the new 6 Series B MSO
Behind the Scenes: Tek Engineers Describe the Making of the 6 Series B Oscilloscope Wednesday, September 30, 2020
The brand new 6 Series B MSO oscilloscope is out, setting new standards for performance, noise and accuracy in the test and measurement industry. Launched in extraordinary times, the 6 Series B MSO has been a labor of love for many of our engineers, who found new ways to collaborate and innovate solutions under the impact of a quarantine. As engineers themselves, Tektronix developers are …
4 Important Upgrades to the 6 Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope Friday, September 25, 2020
Constant improvement is at the heart of engineering. From computers and cars to bridges and buildings, the goal of an engineer is to make it faster, stronger, more accurate, more efficient than before. As engineers ourselves, we’re constantly looking for ways we can improve and upgrade our own products. The brand new 6 Series B Mixed Signal Oscilloscope is a perfect example. Read on to learn 4 key …
Measuring radar pulses can be difficult. Wave form picture
5 Parameters for Measuring Radar Pulses Friday, September 18, 2020
Radar systems can use continuous wave (CW) signals or, more commonly, low duty-cycle pulsed signals. Although there are several continuous transmission types of radar, primarily Doppler, the great majority of radars are pulsed. The RF pulse characteristics reveal a great deal about a radar's capability. Electronic Warfare (EW) and Electronic lntelligence (ELINT) experts specialize in the study of …

What is Probability of Intercept (POI) and Why it Matters Thursday, September 10, 2020
One term we see quite often when breaking down spectrum analyzers is probability of intercept (POI). So, what is the definition of probability of intercept and why does it matter? When we see “probability of intercept” we should know that this term is almost always a contraction of the phrase “minimum event duration for 100% probability of intercept”. POI is the amount of time equal to “the …

8 Challenges with Wideband Radar Thursday, August 27, 2020
Increasingly, designers of radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems and components need to perform modulation and pulse analyses at wider bandwidths. Spectrum managers also need to record and analyze hours of wide bandwidth data. There area number of test and measurement challenges associated with these needs, however.    Here are eight challenges with wideband radar: Generating …
A Better Method for Analyzing Ripple on Power Rails Friday, July 17, 2020
How Spectrum View Outperforms Traditional Oscilloscope FFTs with Tighter Frequency Resolution Over Wider Ranges Debugging embedded systems often involves looking for clues that are hard to discover just by looking at one domain at a time. The ability to view time and frequency domains simultaneously can enable you to measure a power rail’s voltage during wireless transmissions or observe nearfield …
