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, Cherry is giving away five of its Energy Harvesting Evaluation kits, worth over 266 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win. Cherry's energy harvesting technology benefit mostly applications where a complex wire assembly and/or batteries would be inappropriate.

The required RF-energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch and the data is transmitted wirelessly using RF-technology. The technology is very easy to install, fit and forget, with two standardised package versions for industrial applications: a rocker switch for actuation by hand and a snap-action switch for mechanical actuation.
