Anritsu Co. introduces the MS2830A signal analyzer that delivers best-in-class speed and accuracy over a frequency range of 9 kHz to 3.6/6.0/13.5 GHz in a cost-efficient design. Developed for integration and production environments, the MS2830A allows manufacturers of 3G and 4G wireless devices and systems to increase production yield, reduce manufacturing costs, and have greater confidence in product performance.

The MS2830A has industry best measurement speed. The base model conducts frequency switching, sweeping and outputs transfer batch measurement results in approximately 12 ms. When the optional vector signal analysis (VSA) function is installed, the MS2830A supports noise averaging in approximately 0.1 sec, several times faster than conventional sweep spectrum analyzers. In-band measurements, such as ACP, OBT and channel power, can be conducted much faster when the MS2830A is in VSA mode because the MS2830A uses FFT batch capture in a 31.25 MHz analysis bandwidth.

High-speed measurement accuracy is achieved with the MS2830A as well. It has an average noise level of -153 dBm (at 1 GHz without preamp), tertiary phase intermodulation distortion (TOI) of +15 dBm and typical total level accuracy of ±0.3 dB. The high performance allows the MS2830A to conduct extremely precise distortion and spurious measurements to improve production yield.
