Title: Measurement Bandwidth Extension Using Multisine Signals: Propagation of Error
Published: February 06, 2010
Abstract: We describe a post-processing technique that can extend the effective measurement bandwidth of narrowband vector receivers by phase aligning overlapping measurements. The method requires only knowledge of the desired phases of a periodic, multisine excitation, making it useful in the phase characterization of distortion products. We study the repeatability of the method and its sensitivity to both measurement parameters and phase measurement errors.
