10 Hints to Minimize Noise Figure Uncertainties

Post by VK4GHZ » Mon Mar 23, 2020 8:29 pm

Received from Keysight today, and FYI.

"Noise figure—a fundamental RF measurement—is critical for assessing the receiver's ability to detect weak, incoming signals in the presence of self-generated noise.

Reducing noise figure begins with a solid understanding of the uncertainties in your components, subsystems and setup.

Quantifying those unknowns depends on flexible tools that provide accurate, reliable results.

Get 10 hints from our experts to help you minimize noise figure uncertainties including:
–Ways to minimize extraneous signals and address mismatch uncertainties
–Common sources of non-linearity

We hope you find this resource helpful.

Thanks Adam, a very interesting read. I've often remarked, in connection with noise figure, that if you can measure it, it's probably too high!
