New Handheld Microwave Analyzers with 100 MHz Real-Time BW for 5G and EW Testing

Keysight has announced their next generation multi-purpose, handheld microwave analyzers that provide precise measurements from 9 kHz to 26.5 GHz. The FieldFox B-series delivers measurement precision and bandwidth up to 100 MHz for wide-band, real-time spectrum analysis to enable 5G testing in the field.

Accurate microwave measurements are becoming increasingly necessary in harsh and hard-to-reach environments spanning a wide range of conditions: day or night, rain or shine, hot or cold; aboard a ship, in an aircraft, or in a vehicle. In these situations, a handheld instrument must be capable of making the required measurements with performance and accuracy. 

Keysight's new FieldFox B-series analyzers offer wide-band, gap-free, real-time measurement capabilities that enable 5G network testing in the field. In addition, these new capabilities enable customers to locate and identify the shortest interfering threats to their satellite communication networks. Designed to withstand the toughest working conditions, the rugged, durable and portable FieldFox B handheld analyzers provide the following customer benefits:

  • 100 MHz bandwidth  in real-time for accurate cellular base-station testing         
  • PRF 28800F compliant to withstand  explosive impact and wet weather conditions
  • 10 dB improvement in displayed  average noise level (DANL) for measuring low noise signals and detecting weak  interferers
  • Collect, playback, and analyze raw  I/Q data for electronic warfare test
  • Save time and space in the field kit  with a task-driven user interface for each operation mode
  • Handle routine  maintenance and in-depth troubleshooting with precision, including multiple  measurement applications to meet specific measurement needs
  • Easily  transport measurements from the field to the lab for further analysis with the 89600 VSA software
