    How can I measure the Side-Band Amplitude?

    Hello Everyone,

    I have a NFC system (Reader -> Power Amplifier -> Antenna <-> NFC Tag) in which I can generate a H-field strength from 1.5 A/m to 7.5 A/m. So I would like to know how I can measure the Side-Band Amplitude (SBA) as well as lower sideband (@lsb) and upper sideband (@usb) of the system.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Which modulation do you want to measure? Reader or tag generated? Why sidebands separately? No SSB involved with NFC.

    It is an ASK modulation. I would like to measure the reader side generated. Thanks much.

    Re: How can I measure the Side-Band Amplitude?

    You can either calculate the side band to carrier magnitude ratio based on the used modulation index or measure the magnitudes with a spectrum analyzer. Modulation index is different for 106 kbps and higher bit rate mode, 100% versus 8 - 30 %.
