The Spectrum Analyzer/Signal Analyzer MS2830A is a with top-class measurement speed at medium-class price. It has best-of-class dynamic range (average noise level [DANL]: –153 dBm, third-order intermodulation distortion [TOI]: +15 dBm) and excellent ±0.3 dB (typ.) total level accuracy using unique level calibration technology.

The MS2830A’s unique Capture & Playback function enables users to capture real-world signals in the field and then recreate them in the lab or on the production line. The MS2830A offers the performance and measurement speed of a high-end test instrument for a mid-range price. Features include:

  • Best-of-class dynamic range and total level accuracy minimize measurement uncertainty and maximize production yield
  • Wide variety of built-in measurement functions, including channel power, occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel leakage power (ACLR), spurious emissions, and much more
  • Low Phase Noise Performance option MS2830A-066 greatly improves phase noise for signals below 3.6 GHz, enabling unmatched performance for the most challenging narrowband adjacent channel leakage power and spurious emissions tests
  • Optional wideband vector signal analysis enables frequency vs. time, phase vs. time, spectrogram, and CCDF measurements
  • Comprehensive vector modulation analysis of proprietary and standard wireless communications signals, including LTE/LTE-Advanced, W-CDMA, GSM/EDGE, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/j/n/p, ZigBee, P25 Phase 1 & 2, DMR, NXDN and ITU-R Positive Train Control
  • Optional integrated vector signal generator produces continuous wave and I/Q modulated signals to support Tx and Rx testing
  • Audio Analyzer option MS2830A-018 enables complete Tx and Rx testing for analog radios, eliminating need for a dedicated instrument
  • Noise Figure Measurement Function option MS2830A-017 and Preamplifier option MS2830A-008 enable precise noise figure measurements

    *2: TOI (Third Order Intercept)
    *3: DANL (Displayed Average Noise Level)

    ■ Signal Analyzer Function

    Analysis Bandwidth 10, 31.25, 62.5*4, 125*4 MHz
    *4:An image response is received when setting the bandwidth to more than 31.25 MHz.
    This can be used when not inputting a signal frequency outside the MS2830A analysis bandwidth (125 MHz max.).
    The MS2690A/91A/92A is recommended for other measurement purposes.

    ■ Vector Signal Generator (MS2830A-020/021)

    Frequency Range MS2830A-020: 250 kHz to 3.6 GHz
