Anritsu Expands Signal Analyzer Frequency Models to Support Narrowband Measurement Requirements for Wireless Devices


Updated MS2840A Offers Extended Low Phase Noise Options and Support for Millimeter-Waveband Transmitter and Antenna Measurements


Luton, UK – 22nd June, 2016 – Anritsu Corporation has extended its Signal Analyzer MS2840A product line by adding three new frequency models (3.6 GHz, 6 GHz, and 26.5 GHz) to its current 44.5-GHz model supporting excellent narrowband measurement performance in a middle-range signal analyzer/spectrum analyzer platform. With a dedicated low phase noise option, the 3.6-GHz and 6-GHz models have best-in-class close-in SSB phase noise performance that exceeds the performance of other makers’ expensive high-end models, as well as new option functions like the built-in signal generator offered by the previous MS2830A series.

Many existing signal analyzers/spectrum analyzers on the market have the wideband performance required to support increasing common LTE and W-LAN measurements, but lack the narrowband measurement performance required for developing and manufacturing oscillators for various wireless applications. To meet the increasing demand for a low-cost platform with better performance than other high-end models, Anritsu has pushed development of new functions for its middle-range Signal Analyzer MS2840A, emphasizing narrowband measurement performance by targeting more frequency options, an order-of-magnitude better SSB phase noise performance, built-in signal generator, etc., supporting a versatile measurement platform.

This SSB phase noise performance upgrade has sufficient margin for evaluating spurious and phase noise of oscillators in wired and wireless equipment, which could only be evaluated previously using large and expensive dedicated phase noise measuring instruments and spectrum analyzers. Additionally, installing options such as the signal generator enables easy all-in-one MS2840A wireless TRx evaluations.
