Berkeley Nucleonics released an ultra-low phase noise feature for their series of compact, portable, and 1 U rackmount microwave signal generators covering frequency ranges from 100 kHz up to 12, 20, and 26.5 GHz. These versatile instruments are offered with a full modulation suite or only as an LO source. At 4 GHz output phase noise is measured at -115 dBc/Hz at a 1 KHz offset.
Berkeley Nucleonics customers made a wish list for the RTSA7500 series real-time spectrum analyzer and BNC listened. Introducing the launched RTSA7550 solution. With a dramatically faster sweeping speed of 28 GHz/sec at 10 kHz resolution bandwidth and a 10 x increase in streaming rate the RTSA7550 has now become the standard for price-performance comparisons.
GUI update available for the BNC model 7300 phase noise test system. Key performance features include broadband 5 MHz to 26.5 GHz complete with no additional hardware, absolute and additive noise measurement included in one system, fastest ATE measurements in the industry (< 200 ms complete) and pulse and AM measurements capable. The GUI can be updated by simply accepting the "Auto Update" notice feature.
The Model 845-26 is a low noise and fast-switching microwave signal generator covering a continuous frequency range from 100 kHz up to 26 GHz. The 845-26 has 0.001 Hz frequency resolution, fast switching (only 400 µs frequency), excellent phase noise (-108 dBc/Hz at 10 GHz and 20 kHz offset) and a high power output. The Model 845-26 operates with an ultra-stable temperature compensated 100 MHz reference (OCXO).
Berkeley Nucleonics (BNC) has developed and introduced a next generation, high performance, real-time spectrum analyzer (RTSA) at one-tenth the cost and one-tenth the size and weight of a typical benchtop RTSA. At the same time, it has 10× the performance of a portable handheld spectrum analyzer at half the cost. This leapfrog in technology by BNC is poised to revolutionize the $700 million per year spectrum analyzer test and measurement market.
