Measurement Station for Wideband Transmission Systems
Many tasks for optical and wireless transmission systems like analysis, simulations and simple measurements with available equipment are influenced by non-reproducible effects and are therefore not reliable. Accurate signal generators and signal analyzers with large bandwidth lead to reproducible and therefore reliable measurement results.
Our measurement station for transmission systems includes a 4-channel oscilloscope with an analog bandwidth of 23 GHz, a 2-channel arbitrary waveform generator to generate signals up to 10 GHz, several multimeters and a programmable power supply. Automated measurements can be performed. Our measurement station is able to analyze transmission systems as well as single wireless transmitter and receiver within a large frequency range.
Core of this measurement station is a Tektronix-DPO72304DX Oscilloscope with 23 GHz bandwidth and 100 GS/s. Digital and analog modulation can be analyzed with an integrated vector-signal-analyzer. Additionally, it is possible to analyze protocols applied in IEEE 802.11 (WLAN) or IEEE 802.3 (GbE). The FFT function enables further analysis of signals within the frequency domain.
Test signals with a frequency between 100 kHz and 10 GHz are generated by our Tektronix-AWG70002A signal generator. Furthermore it supports the generation of GSM and IEEE 802.11 signals. Measured waveforms from the oscilloscope can be stored on the signal generator for further usage e.g. as test signal.
We also provide measurement services with our measurement station for wideband transmission systems. Please contact Prof. Hellbrück if you are interested.
