The Anritsu MS2830A signal analyzer features an external mixer design that achieves a best in-class-dynamic range. It can reduce the multiplier magnitude necessary for mm-wave coverage using an intermediate frequency of 1.875 GHz (IF output with 1 GHz bandwidth) and LO range of 5 GHz to 10 GHz. The high-performance, low-cost solution verifies emissions of mm-wave point-to-point wireless links.
The MS2830A measures #-band—60-90 GHz, WR-12 with better DANL (nominal -120 dBm/Hz at 80 GHz) based on typical external mixer conversion loss of 36 dB. It represents a minimum 4-8 dB improvement over existing solutions. Priced at less than $50,000. Contact company for availability.
