Signal Hound to Release Two New T&M Products at IMS 2019

At the IMS 2019 event in Boston this year, Signal Hound will be showcasing its range of products and highlighting two new devices – the SM200B 20 GHz spectrum analyzer and the VSG60A 6 GHz signal generator. The company will be present at the event from June 4-6 in the Boston Convention Center in Booth #123.

New 20 GHz Analyzer with 160 MHz IBW of Calibrated I/Q Capture

Signal Hound’s new SM200B offers 160 MHz instantaneous bandwidth (IBW) calibrated I/Q capture, available through block transfer of a 2-second I/Q buffer over USB 3.0 to the PC. This added 2-seconds of segmented I/Q capture memory, with advanced triggering options such as frequency mask triggering (FMT) plus user-specified pre- and post-trigger, satisfies the ever-increasing analysis bandwidth demands of the wireless industry. The SM200B maintains the same dynamic range, phase noise, 1 THz/s sweep speed, and 100 kHz to 20 GHz tuning range that makes the SM200A so popular.

By adding the 160 MHz I/Q capture buffer to the SM200B, Signal Hound has opened the door for customers looking to do serious work with spectrum monitoring, 5G, and radar at an unrivaled and affordable price.

New 6 GHz Vector Signal Generator

Signal Hound is also announcing the VSG60A vector signal generator, which offers the performance and agility of a serious vector signal generator at a fraction of the cost. A low phase noise, agile local oscillator with a 200 μs switch time enables frequency hopping spread spectrum testing, and a dual 14-bit DAC runs at 2x or 3x the I/Q symbol rate using digital oversampling to provide a flat, clean baseband. A trigger output is available to synchronize the VSG60A with other test equipment.

The new vector signal generator includes a variety of pre-programmed modulation types including Wi-Fi, QAM, PSK, CW, Pulse, Multi-tone, and many more. As a fully calibrated 40 MHz bandwidth streaming I/Q Vector Signal Generator with waveform generation software included and an affordable price point, the VSG60A is truly in a class of its own – especially as a small form-factor device.

Both the SM200B 20 GHz spectrum analyzer and VSG60A 6 GHz vector signal generator will be available for purchase on the Signal Hound website and through global distributors in Q4 2019.
