NoiseTech’s families of impedance generators and switches are developed for measuring of noise parameters for applications such as WiFi, ANT, WiMax, LTE, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, 4G, 5G, IoT, biomedical, radio astronomy, quantum computing.
Noise parameters are “vector” noise figures that provide a full picture about the best sensitivity a certain design can achieve, how sensitive this sensitivity is to mismatches, and how the input matching should be developed for best sensitivity. In contrast, noise figures only tell us the sensitivity for a given signal source resistance. More information about noise parameters can be found at NoiseTech’s primer on noise parameters and in the resources menu under Application Notes and other resources and FAQ.
In this video, noise parameter measurement steps with NoiseTech impedance generator IG0160C are demonstrated.
