USB Power Analyzer

Microwave Journal interviews Dave Bolan with Anritsu Company during European Microwave week October 2016.

Introducing the new ultraportable power analyzer USB-powered which enables simple, numeric frequency-based measurements of RF power from 9 kHz to 70 GHz and as low as -90 dBm. Traditional power meters are broadband and have limited power ranges, so engineers and technicians are using spectrum analyzers which include many unneeded features, cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and take up half the test bench just to make simple, frequency-based RF amplitude measurements. Power Master enables those measurements in a USB-powered device slightly bigger than a smartphone and at a fraction of the price of a spectrum analyzer.
