Handheld analyser combines 5G and electronic warfare testing
Believed to be the first handheld combination spectrum and vector network analyser with 100MHz real time bandwidth for 5G and electronic warfare testing, the FieldFox B-series is available from Keysight Technologies.
Accurate microwave measurements are necessary in harsh and hard-to-reach environments. Conditions can vary, 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, says Keysight, introducing the FieldFox B-series analysers.
The analysers 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 a satellite communication networks. Designed to withstand the toughest working conditions, the rugged, durable and portable FieldFox B handheld analysers provide the following 100MHz bandwidth in real-time for accurate cellular base station testing, PRF 28800F-compliance to withstand explosive impact and wet weather conditions, 10dB improvement in displayed average noise level (DANL) for measuring low noise signals and detecting weak interferers, the ability to collect, play back and analyse raw I/Q data for electronic warfare test, while saving time and space in the field kit with a task-driven user interface for each operation mode.
The FieldFox B-series analysers also handle routine maintenance and in-depth troubleshooting with multiple measurement applications to meet specific measurement needs.
Measurements can be transported from the field to the lab for further analysis with the 89600 VSA software
