Anritsu Company, has partnered with AnaPico AG, in response to the growing demand from customers need for instruments to capture RF IQ data signals of interest over the air and then play them back from vector signal generators.

The Anritsu IQ Signal Master™ MX280005A PC application has been enhanced to integrate the capture of RF IQ signals using the Field Master Pro™ MS2090A spectrum analyzer and then to load the IQ data file into the AnaPico VSG for playback at any frequency up to 40 GHz. The seamless process of IQ data capture and playback is ideal for in depth testing of the response of receivers to a wide range of signals. 
The ability to record and analyze a broad range of radio signals including radars, telemetry links, secure communications and jammers are increasingly important to the security and defense agencies. The IQ Signal Master MX280005A integrates all the required functionality into a single package that manages the capture configuration, provides a built-in spectrum analyzer replay with microsecond resolution, and playback of the captured signal at any frequency to 40 GHz.

Built in intelligent algorithms include tools to quickly find and extract signals of interest from large data files, extraction of low-level signals from the noise and scenario testing to validate the performance of receivers to real world threats. 

MS2090A real time spectrum analyzer delivers performance never previously available in a compact, handheld instrument. With continuous frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 54 GHz, the Field Master Pro MS2090A is specifically designed to meet the test challenges of a full range of other wireless technologies in use today, including: 5G, LTE, wireless backhaul, aerospace/defense, satellite systems, and radar.

IQ Signal Master MX280005A Vector Signal Analysis Software provides a comprehensive suite of measurements that deliver post processing and analysis of IQ data files captured on Anritsu MS2090A, MS27201A and MS2710XA spectrum analyzers. The software is designed to bring together all the essential tools required to capture IQ data files and then gain critical insights into the nature of the captured signals. Modes within the application support the ability to capture or stream IQ data into the PC memory, perform modulation quality measurements and playback IQ data with high frequency and time resolution.
