A quick look at what it takes to make a Block UpConverter (BUC) for the 14 GHz Ku-Band satellite uplink band work. A BUC is used in professional Broadcast TV environments to convert a video signal from a L-Band intermediate frequency to the 14 GHz range to be received by broadcast satellites.
Quick look both at & inside the brand new Tektronix TSG4106 6 GHz vector signal generator. They say real beauty lies on the inside and this beauty certainly measures up, inside and out.
A tour of the Teledyne LeCroy factory in Chestnut Ridge, NY. Great insight into the high quality standards that LeCroy is known for. Tour guide is Corporate Quality Manager Mark DeVries. Tyler Cox, VP Worldwide Oscilloscope Operations, is also seen in the video.
In this episode I’m showing the intense resolution of the Keithley DMM 7510, a 7 1/2 digit bench multimeter. It’s giving unbelievable microamp resolution on a milliamp scale. That’s just nuts. In a good way.
Tektronix is offering some kick-ass hands-on spectrum analyzer workshops across the United States. I’m excited to announce that I will be at the Santa Clara RF Signal Hunting and Transceiver Test workshops on Tuesday, May 19, 2015. Be there or be square!

This video was shot in DNxHD using the Blackmagic HyperDeck shuttle I showed in another video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cc83-Cc-vtw). After editing in Adobe Premiere and finishing it off in SpeedGrade, I exported it to h.264 at a variable bitrate averaging 35 Mbps. Please let me know if you see an increase in image quality.
