Groundbreaking performance, functionality, and ease of use are features the Signature (MS2781A) spectrum analyzer promises to RF and microwave designers. Employing an advanced architecture, the instrument provides spectrum and digital-modulation analysis over a frequency range from 100 Hz to 8 GHz. The architecture also provides an optional 30 MHz resolution bandwidth and, said to be a first, an open Windows XP environment. Employing a 9.5 GHz to 17.5 GHz synthesized first local oscillator (LO) and 9.5 GHz IF allows the instrument to measure the entire 100 Hz to 8 GHz frequency range in one sweep without band switching or pre-selection. Performance specs include a TOI of +23 dBm, DANL of less than -147 dBm, and a typical amplitude accuracy of less than 0.65 dB over the entire frequency range. For digital modulation analysis, measurements include error vector magnitude (EVM), carrier leakage, and I/Q imbalance without the need for a separate computer and post processing. Other features include a DVD-ROM and CD R/W drive, two USB interfaces on the front panel, and one USB port plus GPIB and Ethernet interfaces on the rear panel. Additionally, a MATLAB connectivity option allows live update viewing of MATLAB results with measurements. Price for the MS2781 is $49,500; the MATLAB option is $1,000.
