RF and Microwave Calibration Services from Transcat

Audio & Noise Analyzer Calibration Services

Noise sources support your quality noise figure measurements. By correctly evaluating unwanted noise or audio signals, you will be able to design or modify a radio frequency system so that it performs to your standards. Transcat offers industry-leading expertise in Noise Source Calibrations so you are assured of accuracy. Using our advanced radio frequency calibration capabilities, we will verify the performance of your source module. We calibrate RF noise generators from most every manufacturer and in various configurations. Our accredited and wide-ranging electrical capabilities also allow us to calibrate audio analyzers, attenuators, signal generators, power meters, spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes and other devices used in testing, R&D and component manufacturing. Transcat services instruments from Agilent, Keysight, Rhode & Schwartz, Anritsu and more.

Measuring Noise Figure in an RF System

Your RF calibration service can be performed in one of our ISO 17025-accredited labs or on your site. Either way, our knowledgeable technicians will use the most appropriate calibration method for your device. Transcat will confirm that your noise source meets published specifications and application requirements. Noise figure is the difference between the noise generated by the source into a system and the system’s total noise. We can measure a source’s excess noise ratio (ENR) throughout a full frequency range, and obtain reflection coefficient magnitude and phase measurements – with a low degree of uncertainty.
