The 4400A RF Peak Power Meter performs time-domain measurements in the 1 MHz to 40 GHz range. It tests radar pulse bursts, GSM and TDMA wireless signals, and broadcast TV and radio transmitters.
The peak power dynamic range is >60 dB without any range changes. Pulse measurements are made from -40 dB to +20 dB and CW measurements from -50 dB to +20 dB with 0.1 dB resolution. A random repetitive sampling system continually performs waveform averaging from 1 to 10,000 S/data point. Continuous signal processing allows pre- and post-trigger analysis.
Data can be stored on a 1.44-MB floppy drive. A laser printer or a pen plotter can be connected through serial, parallel, or GPIB ports. $13,250. Boonton Electronics, (201) 386-9696.
