A new RF spectrum analyzer option for Aeroflex's 3500 hand-held 1 GHz Radio Test Set provides an almost instantaneous display of the RF frequency spectrum and will have P25 parametric test capabilities by summer 2008.
The 3500 can measure signal levels down to -136 dBm, providing advanced signal analysis in a platform that weighs less than 8.5 lbs. Operation includes span ranges of 10 kHz to 5 MHz and an effective resolution bandwidth as small as 19 Hz. Marker functions are available for the user to measure power in a specified bandwidth.
Features include a broadband power meter, frequency meter, deviation and modulation Index, SINAD and distortion measurements
The P25 tests coming this summer will include C4FM modulation fidelity, frequency error, power and symbol deviation measurements. The 3500 will also generate both the 1011 and O.153 bit pattern for performing digital receiver sensitivity tests.
The 3500 RF spectrum analyzer option is available as Option 35XXOPT01. P25 options will be available in summer of 2008.
