Spurious analysis in RF system

Question asked by Lei_Yue Employee on Mar 26, 2018

Abstract:

Spurious is one of the trickiest challenges in RF system architecture, the architect should avoid the high order spurious of the mixer to come within IF band. Spectrasys is a great RF system simulation tool that enables users to troubleshoot and optimize RF architectures. A spurious amplitude table can be created for every combination of the input and LO signal that appear at the mixer output. Thus, you do not have to worry about the spurious analysis in your RF system.
