The mmWave market is the open frontier for a wireless communications world that is getting more and more crowded. As a result, many new technologies are being developed to take advantage of the bandwidth availability
at higher frequencies. This imposes several new challenges on developers, however, including:
- Higher propagation losses in mmWave frequencies
- A general lack of test equipment up to 70 GHz
By utilizing our patented non-linear transmission line (NLTL) technology, our new line of Ultraportable Spectrum Analyzers meets the need for test at higher frequencies while maintaining performance and affordability.
The MS2760A is the world’s first handheld millimeter wave spectrum analyzer to provide
continuous coverage from 9 kHz up to 110 GHz. It is ideal for the growing 5G network
development market, as well as other fast growing mmWave applications, like 802.11ad / WiGig, E-band microwave wireless communications, satellite communications, and automotive radar.
The MS2760A is an innovative new mmWave spectrum analyzer design, delivering basic
spectrum analysis capabilities well below the price point of traditional spectrum
analyzers, in an unimaginably small form factor that operates from 9 kHz up to 110 GHz.
The MS2760A is a direct conversion spectrum analyzer below 6.15 GHz and utilizes
sampler-based conversion above 6.15 GHz. The sampler-based conversion of the
MS2760A exploits Anritsu’s patented NLTL sampling technology in a customized MMIC
based RFIC. The MS2760A also employs unique software algorithms to minimize image
responses which may appear under certain use cases when wideband modulated and
multi-tone signals are being analyzed.
From Anritsu, the inventor of the handheld spectrum analyzer first introduced in 1999, we are proud to introduce our first
generation MS2760A Spectrum Master – Ultraportable Spectrum Analyzer. By utilizing Anritsu’s patented shockline
nonlinear transmission line (NLTL) technology, the MS2760A shatters the cost, size, and performance barriers associated
with traditional large form-factor instruments to more efficiently advance technology development. The MS2760A is truly
pocket sized, but big on performance with industry leading dynamic range, sweep speed, and amplitude accuracy.
This manual provides general information, as well as installation and operating information for the Anritsu
MS2760A Spectrum Master Ultraportable Spectrum Analyzer and Spectrum Master User Interface Software.
This manual provides maintenance instructions for the Anritsu MS2760A Spectrum Master. Familiarity with the basic operation of the MS2760A using the MS2760A GUI software is assumed (for
example, how to preset the instrument and set frequency, span and RBW settings).
