Siglent Releases Spectrum Analyzer and Signal Generator for Frequencies up to 26.5 GHz

Siglent has released the SSA5000A spectrum analyzer and the SSG5000A RF/MW signal generator. These newly introduced instruments support the X and K-band measurements up to 26.5 GHz. The two instruments build together a powerful team, that can help find and solve issues quickly. As a result, the engineering work can be finished in time.

The SSA5000A spectrum analyzer series includes two models that provide fast spectrum analysis from 9 kHz to 13.6 or 26.5 GHz, a DANL of -165 dBm/Hz, a low phase noise of 105 dBc/Hz and feature a big 12-inch touchscreen. These analyzers are ideal for use in communications and the IoT industry. The SSA5000A also fits well for RF component and transmitter evaluation. The options analog and digital modulation analysis (AMA/DMA) enable common analog (AM, FM) and digital (ASK, FSK, PSK, MSK, QAM) demodulation and analysis. These help to speed up transmission debugging and troubleshooting. It intuitively measures EVM, other transmission quality factors and features Eye-diagram and constellation graphing modes.

The SSA5000A can also capture intermittent signals using the optional real-time (RTSA) mode. This feature has an analysis bandwidth up to 40 MHz and is built to make transmission analysis of common protocols like Bluetooth and WLAN testing at IoT devices easier. The optional EMI feature delivers efficient interference and electromagnetic pre-compliance measurements. The platform is designed with expansion in mind; therefore, bandwidth and functions can be upgraded later after the purchase.

The new SSG5000A RF/MW signal generator can output clean sine waves up to 20 GHz. The spectral purity, low phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz and power control makes it ideal for use as a high frequency LO in many applications like radar, quantum physics and RF component verification. Communication modules can also be tested using the SSG5000A as the LO source combined with the Siglent SSG5000X-V vector signal generator as a baseband generator. For faster testing, the SSG5000A also provides both frequency and level sweep functions. Pulse signal generation is standard on the unit and it can control common third-party USB power sensors for cable loss compensated sourcing.

Siglent was showcasing its range of RF analyzers and generators at the European Microwave Week in Milan this week. Click here to see everything RF's coverage of the event.
