Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced a collaboration with ThinkRF, a leader in software-defined spectrum analysis, to enable deep and consistent signal quality measurements across many different deployments and applications. The resulting solution, based on Keysight’s industry-leading 89600 VSA software, sets a new standard for open, flexible and cost-effective spectrum monitoring and analysis.
The combined Keysight and ThinkRF solution couples Keysight’s 89600 VSA software with ThinkRF’s R5500 real-time spectrum analyzer to provide cost-effective spectrum monitoring and comprehensive vector signal analysis for government agencies and aerospace and defense firms. Developers can now explore virtually every facet of a signal and optimize even the most advanced designs.
“Since its introduction in 2000, the 89600 VSA software has emerged as a flagship product for Keysight and become an industry-leading solution,” said Charles Plott, marketing and planning manager of Keysight Technologies’ Design Engineer Software organization. “Our collaboration with ThinkRF further extends our leadership position and the reach of our powerful software—ensuring that more developers can gain access to the software’s demodulation and vector signal analysis capabilities for more applications.”
With the introduction of the combined Keysight and ThinkRF solution, ThinkRF becomes the first third-party vendor to directly interface its hardware to the 89600 VSA software.
“We are excited by the result of our collaboration with Keysight, and for the benefits our ThinkRF software-defined spectrum analysis solution for the 89600 VSA brings to the market,” said Jim Roche, CEO of ThinkRF. “Keysight VSA customers can now use our compact, easily upgraded and remotely deployable R5500 analyzer for comprehensive vector signal analysis across multiple deployment scenarios and applications.”
