Application Notes

Recording and Playing Back the GPS RF Spectrum

A GPS L1-frequency signal is recorded using a receiver such as an R&S®TSMW or an R&S®FSV. Then the I/Q data is stored via the digital I/Q interface on an R&S®IQR device. Playback is realized using an R&S®SMBV signal generator that is also connected to an R&S®IQR via a digital I/Q interface.
