Spectrum Analyzer Has Optional WCDMA Measurements
Anritsu Company has introduced its MS2717A Economy Spectrum Analyzer that offers general purpose spectrum analysis over the 100 kHz to 7.1 GHz frequency range. In addition to its performance and capabilities in analyzing RF components used in the wireless, aerospace/defense and university markets, it also offers optional WCDMA/HSDPA RF test and WCDMA detailed demodulation measurements for characterizing wireless Node-B transmitter components. Its phase noise performance is typically -110 dBc/Hz SSB at 10 kHz with offsets up to 6 GHz so that it measures most wireless local oscillators and synthesizers easily. Ergonomically designed, the device is suitable for verifying RF components in 3G, TD-SCDMA, WiMAX, WiBro and other wireless technologies. It can also be configured to provide affordable test of Node-B transmitters. With options, the signal analyzer mode frequency ranges are 824 MHz to 894 MHz, 1710 MHz to 2,170 MHz, and 2,300 MHz to 2,700 MHz. For basic RF measurements, a WCDMA/HSDPA RF measurements option offers measurements of ACLR, multi-channel ACLR and spectral emission mask, as well as RF summary tables for quick node B analysis. The price is less than $12,000.
