A Low Cost Spectral Power Extraction Technique for RF Transceiver Testing

In this work, we propose a low cost spectral power extraction technique to observe the output spectrum of the frequency synthesizer and perform the IIP3 (input third-order intercept point) test on the RF receiver. The underlying idea is to configure the RF receiver as an analog spectrum analyzer to test itself - the transceiver faults such as spurs and… CONTINUE READING
