Using Normalized Phase Noise as a Benchmark Metric Download White Paper 972Ko

Phase Noise is a measure of the spectral purity of a signal in an oscillator system. It quantifies the short-term random variation of the frequency of the signal, and is a product of thermal noise and low frequency flicker noise within the system. Most RF systems require an overall integrated phase noise specification to be met, as phase noise can corrupt both the up-converted and down-converted signal paths. In this whitepaper Peregrine discusses a way to benchmark PLL phase noise in order to easily compare performance between different PLL configurations or products.

This month, Novelda is giving away two full XeThru Inspiration kits worth 1499 US Dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to experiment first hand with its XeThru technology.

Based on the use of radio waves, rather than infrared, ultrasound or light, the company's X2M1000 Inspiration modules can detect presence just from the chest movement while breathing, and measure both the rate and depth of breathing, allowing breathing patterns to be tracked in real-time for a plethora of presence and health-care monitoring applications.
