A Primer on Pulsed Measurements (.PDF Download)

Continuous-wave (CW) signals are often used in RF/microwave applications. Measuring the power level of such signals typically involves a CW power sensor. Many diode-based CW power sensors have a wide dynamic range, allowing them to be an excellent choice for measuring unmodulated CW signals. However, some RF/microwave applications utilize pulsed signals rather than CW signals.
