Ideal power sensor for radar applications

The R&S®NRP-Z81 wideband power sensors are ideal for radar applications. In development or during installation and maintenance, pulse characteristics as well as output power have to be measured. Similar measurements are required in the production of radar systems and radar components. Thanks to a maximum video bandwidth of 30 MHz and a rise/fall time of < 13 ns, the sensors can measure pulses with a pulse width as small as 50 ns. Key pulse parameters are determined automatically to simplify the measurement and prevent operating errors. By increasing the sampling rate, the high-resolution mode for repetitive signals permits the display of strongly magnified signal sections.

Features & benefits

High resolution mode

Achieve a time resolution of up to 100 ps

Some applications require the display of strongly magnified signal sections such as the rising edge of a pulse. To improve the graphical display in the trace mode, which has a resolution of 12.5 ns, a high density of samples is required. Equivalent time sampling with repetitive signals can achieve a time resolution of up to 100 ps.

Test setup with NRP-Z8x and NRX

Automatic pulse analysis

Ideal with R&S®NRX

Automatic pulse analysis supports users in measuring important pulse parameters, eliminating the need for complex measurements using markers. Changes in the pulse shape are immediately taken into account in the measurement results.

  • Time parameters: rise/fall time, start/stop time, pulse width, duty cycle, pulse period, pulse-off time
  • Level parameters: pulse top, pulse base, peak, average, minimum, overshoot (positive and negative)

Time parameters

Ideal for radar applications

Analyze pulsed and modulated signals

The R&S®NRP-Z8x wideband power sensors are perfect for analyzing pulsed and/or modulated signals. Due to their high sampling rate of 80 Msample/s, the power envelope of radar pulses can be reconstructed with a time resolution of 12.5 ns. The sensors’ automatic pulse analysis function makes it possible to measure 15 important pulse parameters automatically, which significantly simplifies and speeds up testing.

Statistical analysis

Statistical analysis of the amplitude distribution

The R&S®NRP-Z8x wideband power sensors permit statistical analysis of the amplitude distribution of noise-like signals to determine key parameters such as peak envelope power, average power and peak-to-average power ratio. A measurement of the CCDF, CDF or PDF using one million samples can be performed by the R&S®NRP-Z8x wideband power sensors in less than 25 ms at full video bandwidth.

Trigger master mode

with base unit or R&S®NRP-Z5

Combined with the R&S®NRX base unit or the R&S®NRP-Z5 sensor hub, an R&S®NRP-Z8x wideband power sensor can be used as a trigger source. In the trigger master mode, a trigger signal is derived from the measured signal inside the power sensor and forwarded to the base unit or sensor hub for further use. All other connected sensors can be externally triggered using this trigger signal.
