World's First Ultraportable mmWave Spectrum Analyzer

Anritsu has introduced the world’s first ultra-portable, millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum analyzer that can be used to verify high-frequency designs, including those used in 5G and E-band applications. The Spectrum Master MS2760A family leverages Anritsu’s patented state-of-the-art NLTL Shockline technology, to lower its cost and size without compromising on performance.

In addition to 5G and E-band, this analyzer significantly improves test procedures and lowers the cost-of-test in other fast-growing mmWave applications, such as 802.11ad/WiGig, satellite communications, electronic warfare, and automotive radar. It is available in multiple frequency options that vary from 9 kHz to 110 GHz (32 GHz, 44 GHz, 50 GHz, 70 GHz, 90 GHz and 110 GHz).

For R&D and test engineers in lab environments, the MS2760A conducts essential spectrum measurements, such as spectrum analysis, channel power, adjacent channel power, spurious emissions, and occupied bandwidth. Users can achieve accuracy never before possible at higher frequencies, as the MS2760A allows measurements to be taken directly at the DUT, unlike benchtop models that require expensive cables that can add loss. Its ability to conduct sweeps from 9 kHz to 110 GHz also improves measurement confidence.

Lower cost-of-test in high-volume manufacturing applications is achieved with the Spectrum Master MS2760A, as it is considerably less expensive than benchtop alternatives. Its ultraportable size also adds flexibility to production test of larger products, including those in aerospace and satellite applications. Accuracy is assured in manufacturing environments due to its ability to conduct continuous sweeps across the entire frequency range.

The Spectrum Master MS2760A simplifies field testing dramatically. Its ultraportable size allows it to be placed in a technician’s pocket, while its continuous sweep ability and USB-powered form factor using a tablet reduces the amount of equipment a technician must carry. With thousands of technicians testing millions of antennas, this more affordable device scales easier than other handheld spectrum analyzers, as well.

The Spectrum analyzer has models to support the 32 GHz, 44 GHz, 50 GHz, 70 GHz, and 110 GHz frequencies. A 90-GHz model is also available for countries where an export license is required for analyzers above 90 GHz. It is the latest member of Anritsu’s growing ultraportable analyzer portfolio that also includes the Power Master MA24507A mmWave power analyzer and Site Master S331P, the lightest, smallest, fastest and most cost-efficient Site Master field cable and antenna analyzer ever developed.
