Siglent Technologies has introduced two new products for its line of radio frequency (RF) instrumentation to meet the growing need for higher bandwidths in testing circuit designs for 5G applications. The new Model SVA1075X is a spectrum and vector network analyzer with a frequency range up to 7.5 GHz. The new Model SSA3075X Plus is a powerful spectrum analyzer with reliable automatic measurements in frequency ranges up to 7.5 GHz. These two new products represent the highest bandwidth products to date for Siglent Technologies and can be extended with vector signal analysis and other options to increase versatility for meeting the unique challenges of RF circuit design.
Both series follow the same flexible and efficient user interface concept that has made the Siglent RF products some of the most popular on the market. These include a 10.1 in touch screen, web server for easy remote control and the ability to connect external mouse and keyboard for a convenient, computer-like usage as well as an intuitive menu structure.
These instrument series can be supplemented with additional broadcast measurement functions such as channel power (CHP), occupied bandwidth (OBW), carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR), harmonics, third order intercept (TOI) and spectrogram — all bundled in one option (SVA1000X-AMK).
The optional vector signal analysis (SVA1000X-AMA/DMA) offers detailed modulation analysis. Signal distortion and interference can easily be visualized within a constellation diagram. Phase or magnitude errors as well as the error vector magnitude (EVM) can be determined for PSK, MSK or QAM modulated signals. These options together enable the analyzers to become powerful transceiver debugging tools.
For electromagnetic pre-compliance testing, these new instruments also feature an EMI filter (200 Hz, 9 kHz, 120 kHz and 1 MHz) and quasi-peak detector package that can be retrofitted with software to simplify EMC pre-compliance measurements.
To address the needs of antenna installations, the SVA1000X series can be upgraded with a distance-to-fault measurement function, which enables the user to detect defects on cables or improper connections. Banner specifications such as DANL down to -161 dBm/Hz, phase noise less than -98 dBc/Hz and a total amplitude accuracy down to 0.7 dB make these products ideal for many RF bench and field applications.
The price for these new RF analyzers starts at $6,999.
