2 Instrumentation for wireless systems

2.1 Introduction

In the first chapter the main figures of merit for microwave and wireless circuits and systems were presented. Those figures of merit are fundamental for a correct specification of the system to be built, and thus their identification and measurement are key to the success of the wireless engineer.

In order to perform correct measurements of those figures of merit, a set of instruments should be used. These instruments should be jointly capable of identifying the most important parameters of the system and clearly, and without any ambiguity, capturing the correct values to be measured.

Several types of instrumentation were developed for gathering all these values and thus clearly identifying ...
