LadyBug USB Peak and Pulse Sensors

LadyBug Peak and pulse sensors, are very useful in many pulse applications. For repetitive pulses, these sensors provide certain statistical numerical pulse information. Today, most microwave communication and radar signals are pulsed. Fast statistical measurements can be invaluablee. To make the measurement, the sensor collects power levels and places them into buckets; enough time for several pulses to occur must be allowed. These buckets are then statistically processed. The Peak power is located and reported. The pulses proximal, mesial, distal and top line levels are located. Using this information, and per ANSI/IEEE Std 181-1977, these sensors automatically calculate and report accurate pulse power, duty cycle and crest factor to the user, as shown in the image above. We provide detailed specifications with a variety example measurements from our sensors in the Using Ladybug Sensors section. Click the links below for more information.
