Signal analyzer offers wide frequency band measurement ranging
Most modern spectrum analyzers have wideband measurement functions that support the increasing demand for LTE and Wireless LAN measurement, but few also address the narrowband measurement requirements of microwave wireless backhaul and VHF/UHF Private Mobile Radio (PMR). As a result, users requiring narrowband performance have either continued using older models dating from 10 to 20 years ago, or they have been forced to purchase expensive high-end models. The MS2840A now addresses this issue by providing an affordable spectrum analyzer that offers the broadest bandwidth measurement performance, with a frequency range from 9 kHz to 44.5 GHz.
The MS2840A includes a built-in oscillator with an improved SSB phase noise performance; support for millimeter-wave band spectrum measurements using a High Performance Waveguide Mixer and best-in-class close-in SSB phase noise performance that enables a wide range of R&D and manufacturing applications, including microwave and millimeter-wave wireless equipment, 79 GHz band automobile radar transmitters, and high frequency oscillators. Additionally, the convenient built-in signal analyzer function supports analysis of instantaneous transmitter signals, while addition of various measurement software and options with noise figurer (NF) measurement functions supports detailed analysis and evaluation of transmitter modulation signals.
