  • Calibration of Wideband Digital Real-time Oscilloscopes (Early access)

    Frequency selection algorithm for spur-free DRTO calibration with measurement examples. We discuss the merits of representing the calibration results either as a convolutional correction (quicker for industry) or as an impulse response. An un-copyedited version of the article is freely available for EMRP Morse stakeholders.

  • Communication projects in 2010 Euramet Industry call

    If you face challenges in getting accurate measurements of the performance of your planned wireless products (especially as we move to very high speeds) you may be interested in being involved in proposals that the National Physical Laboratory is preparing for European funding. Involvement will give you access to state of the art tools and techniques and give you the opportunity to influence the development of future tools and techniques.
