For immediate release - Anritsu has developed the MS2830A Spectrum Analyzer which is an addition to the expandable MS269xA product line and supports high measurement speeds and superior performance at a low cost. As a result this helps improve efficiency of R&D and production, cutting measurement time, improving yield, and reducing power consumption to cut CO2 emissions.

It supports frequency ranges from 3.6 to 13.5 GHz, providing superior RF specifications for average noise level of –153 dBm (1 GHz, without preamplifier), third-order inter-modulation distortion (TOI) of +15 dBm, and total level accuracy of ±0.3 dB (typical). Easily customized expandability from the minimum configuration to an all-in-one advanced TRx tester helps keep down costs to only what is needed, and is available from less than 10K€.

The fastest measurement speed available on the market
The measurement speeds for basic spectrum analyzer functions, such as sweeping, frequency switching, peak search, display and reading of measurements put the MS2830A at the top of its class, while the Vector Signal Analysis option supports even faster measurement of bandwidths up to 31.25 MHz. The instantaneous averaging of modulation signals and noise dispersion measurement significantly out perform all conventional sweep spectrum analyzers.

Top RF performance at mid-range price
The MS2830A delivers superior RF performance, such as average noise level of –153 dBm (1 GHz, without preamplifier), third-order inter-modulation distortion (TOI) of +15 dBm, and total level accuracy of ±0.3 dB (typical), yet at a low cost of below 10K€.

Excellent expandability
The uniquely flexible MS2830A configuration can be customized from basic configuration to comprehensive all-in-one tester to meet customer’s current needs at minimum cost or to minimize future expansion costs. This provides the convenience of a modular based system, but with the performance and convenience of a dedicated test instrument.

Eco-friendly low power consumption
The MS2830A consumes 45% less power than current models, cutting electricity costs and saving CO2 emissions (≤110 W for 3.6 GHz and 6 GHz standalone configurations, and ≤110 W with Vector Signal Generator option installed).

Backwards compatibility with MS269xA
The MS269xA and MS2830A measurement software are fully compatible. Using the MS269xA for R&D and the MS2830A for manufacturing reduces production start-up times and makes it easy to transfer control software from R&D to manufacturing.
