Abstract : The patent relates to a signal source producing signals of selectively determinable variations in repetition frequency which drives a step-recovery diode circuit for generating signals having spectral frequency distributions varying in response to changes in the repetition frequency. The spectrally distributed signals are impressed upon the circuit under test and a wide band amplitude modulation detector is connected to the output of the circuit under test. As the pulse repetition frequency is gradually changed, the output of the detector is observed, and the highest pulse repetition frequency producing signals detectable by the detector is a measure of the bandwidth of the circuit under test.
