APPH application notes and videos

AN2001: Remote Control of the APPH20G / APPH6040 – This application note describes the different ways to establish reliable remote connection to your APPH.

AN2002: How to use external references with APPH20G / APPH6040 – This application note focuses on the phase noise measurement of very low noise reference sources and explains why external references can be very useful to speed up measurement.
AN2003: Additive phase noise measurements with APPH20G / APPH6040 – Additive phase noise, also referred to as residual phase noise, is the self phase noise of a component that adds to an existing signal as the signal passes through it. Hence the additive (residual) phase noise measurement is a valuable technique used to identify the phase noise contribution of a single component as part of a system design.
AN2004: ATE Excel Macro Demo Software for APPH20G / APPH6040 – This application explains how to set up and use the ATE demo that can be downloaded as a zip archive from our homepage. Download the macro.
AN2005: Pulsed Phase Noise Measurements with APPH20G / APPH6040 – This application note explains how to measure absolute phase noise of pulsed RF signals.
AN2007: Running the APPH GUI on High-Resolution Displays – This application note explains how to rung the GUI on HiRes Displays since Windows has introduced a scaling factor for graphical user interfaces.
This Tutorial will give a basic introduction to the APPH GUI and shows you how to perform a simple phase noise measurement using the Anapico APPH 20G/6040.
This Tutorial will explain how to perform a two channel absolute phase noise measurement with external references using an Anapico APPH20G or APPH6040.
This tutorial gives an introduction into the transient analyzer mode of the Anapico APPH20G/6040. It covers the transient analysis of a frequency step (1-2GHz) and demodulation of a 1GHz signal with 10kHz FM.
This Tutorial will explain how to perform a complete VCO Characterization using an Anapico APPH20G or APPH6040.
This Tutorial will explain how to perform a single channel additive phase noise measurement using an Anapico APPH20G or APPH6040.
This tutorial explains how to perform an absolute phase noise measurement of a pulsed 10 GHz signal (pulse rate: 50 kHz; duty cycle: 5%) using an Anapico APPH20G.
