VSWR measurement with a SIGLENT SVA1015X

September 19, 2018

In this video, we use a SIGLENT SVA1015X spectrum and vector network analyzer with optional VNA function to measure the VSWR curves for the input and output of an RF Amplifier. This technique is helpful for functional verification of known devices as well as characterization of unknown devices.

Amplifier gain verification using a spectrum analyzer and tracking generator

August 28, 2018

In this video, we show how to verify the gain performance of an RF amplifier using the SIGLENT SVA1015X spectrum and vector network analyzer. The video contains information on proper connections, attenuation, and basic use of SIGLENT spectrum analyzers and applies to the SSA3000X series as well.

Attenuator verification using a spectrum analyzer and tracking generator

August 24, 2018

In this video, we show how to quickly and easily check the attenuation value of an attenuator using the tracking generator on a SIGLENT SVA1015X spectrum and vector network analyzer. This technique also applies to the SSA3000X series of products.   There is also an application note here: Attenuator Verification  

SVA1015X/SSA3000X Plus web browser remote control

August 14, 2018

In this video, we show how to connect and control the SIGLENT SVA1015X Spectrum and Vector Network Analyzer using the onboard web browser control. This feature delivers easy remote control. configuration, and data collection/display using nothing more than a network-connected computer, Ethernet cable, and a compatible web browser.
