USB-S Applications

The USB-S is typically directly connected to a RF receiver or spectrum analyzer using the SMA connector on the top of the unit.  The amplitude of the harmonics will vary at different frequencies depending on the fundamental frequency selected and the observation frequency.  However, at all specified frequencies the RF level will be well above the specified radiated limits, allowing users to easily compare signal levels with previous/subsequent tests, without the need to be concerns about the receiver noise floor.

The USB-S fundamental frequencies are 1.8 MHz, 10 MHz, 64 MHz, 100 MHz, 133 MHz and 200 MHz.  The fundamental frequency also indicates the step size of the harmonic frequency.  Higher fundamental frequencies will results in higher harmonic energy at high frequencies.

When the optional low frequency pulser is activated, the receiver’s quasi-peak detector can be tested.  The receiver measured level should decrease by 2-3 dB (over the peak value) when this option is activated.
