Latest Anritsu Spectrum Analyzer Delivers Solution for R&D and Manufacturing of Narrowband Wireless Equipment and Devices


New Signal Analyzer MS2840A provides wide frequency band measurement ranging from microwave wireless backhaul to VHF/UHF Private Mobile Radio (PMR)


Luton, UK – April 14, 2016 – Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of the new combined Spectrum Analyzer and Signal Analyzer MS2840A to their range of market leading test and measurement solutions available for the R&D and manufacturing of wireless equipment and devices.

Most modern spectrum analyzers have wideband measurement functions that support the increasing demand for LTE and Wireless LAN measurement, but very few also address the narrowband measurement requirements of microwave wireless backhaul and VHF/UHF Private Mobile Radio (PMR). As a result, users requiring narrowband performance have either continued using older models dating from 10 to 20 years ago, or they have been forced to purchase very expensive high-end models. The MS2840A now addresses this issue by providing an affordable spectrum analyzer that offers the broadest bandwidth measurement performance, with a frequency range from 9 kHz to 44.5 GHz.

Just some of the key features of the MS2840A include a built-in oscillator with greatly improved SSB phase noise performance; support for millimeter-wave band spectrum measurements using a High Performance Waveguide Mixer and best-in-class close-in SSB phase noise performance that enables a wide range of R&D and manufacturing applications, including microwave and millimeter-wave wireless equipment, 79 GHz band automobile radar transmitters, and high frequency oscillators. Additionally, the convenient built-in signal analyzer function supports analysis of instantaneous transmitter signals, while addition of various measurement software and options with noise figurer (NF) measurement functions supports detailed analysis and evaluation of transmitter modulation signals.
