Most RF field probes are designed to measure only the root mean square of a continuous wave electric field over a broad range of frequencies and amplitudes. This is not the case for the AR Field Analyzer which contains an embedded web-page that has the ability to measure CW and Modulated electric field using an oscilloscope-type display. This article provides some background information on the development of field analyzers and how they meet a growing need in system test.
Corry Micronics offers a line of 4-bit through 6-bit RF digital attenuators designed using switched bit PIN diodes. The attenuators require a +/-5volt power supply and feature TTL compatible control logic.
