So I would like your opinions. Are the enclosed results indicative of a suitable measurement level for looking at the supplies on the ES9038Q2M and AK4396 boards? I think these noise levels are far below that of the regulators that are installed on these boards? (The noise levels, not the 1kHz test sine wave.)

Would the measurements be considered meaningful and worthwhile? In case it is not obvious the 1kHz is a test signal that is being put through a 60 dB attenuator to test the 60 dB gain LNA. The 1kHz generator is of course producing the normal assortment of harmonics.

Most supplies have noise well above your measurement limit, so go ahead. I have no experience on those boards so I'll leave the "meaningful and worthwhile" part for other members.

Dear Watson, I can't tell more without seeing the schematics. That's "normal", I would think.

Might depend on who is doing the considering.

Also, might depend on what you find. Say, if you find a problem and fix it, then maybe it will have been worthwhile for you

No need for any measurements here at DIYA. Amir over at ASR has done an ABSOLUTELY SUPERB job at utilizing SUPERB tools and techniques to extract and present statistical data (metrics) in a SUPERBLY-standardized manner.
Superbly-superb superbness superbed superbly.
