NEW: Tracking Generator block

The new SPECTRAN V6 Tracking Generator block is a simple to use tracking generator for the SPECTRAN V6:

If you dock the Spectrum Zoom block you get an additional view since the  "Reference Trace" feature offers more flexibility.

After setting up your mission (attached for download) you need to start a standard setup calibration:

  • First of all make sure only to use high quallity test cable connected to Rx1 and Tx
  • Add a thru connector (connect Rx1 and Tx cable together)
  • Now start the calibration measurement and generate a new reference trace by selecting Mode->"ref" from the SPECTRAN V6 Tracking generator controls. Wait for a view seconds so that enought data are captured. Then change the Mode to "-ref" and you should get a stable flat trace. This shows that the system is now calibrated.
  • Remove the through line and connect the DUT instead

You now get a steady measurement of the cable damping or filter rejection in dB. Attached Screenshot shows the rejection measurement of a WiFi band pass filter:
