## Optimize Use of your Spectrum Analyzer

- Find the Optimum power at the mixer of your spectrum analyzer
(determine required attenuator settings)
- Determine maximum dynamic range for spurious and
intermodulation measurements
- Effectively determine measurement uncertainty
- Remove measurement offset for signals close to the noise
floor

## Impedance Match Your Circuits

Calculate two-element impedance matching circuits using reactive
elements:

- Lumped (inductance and capacitance)
- Distributed (Lines and shorted/open stubs)

## Spuriouses and (un-)Wanted Mixing Products of Non-linear
Circuits

Draw the normalized or un-normalized spuriouses chart for
non-linear elements.

- Find out which frequencies and frequency ranges are
generated at higher order by your element
- Determine effect of blocking signals
- Specify the subharmonic mixer to use in order to expand the
frequency range of your spectrum analyzer
- Use it for somewhat more calculations
