Patented handheld RF spectrum analyzer enables
continuous analysis and real-time data streaming
Fairport, NY, USA: Saelig Company, Inc., (Saelig) (www.saelig.com) announces the availability
of the Spectran V5 Series 20 GHz Realtime Spectrum Analyzer - probably the
world's first real-time handheld RF spectrum analyzer. With a frequency range from 1 Hz
to 20 GHz and a sensitivity of -170 dBm/Hz, this versatile wireless tool enables
continuous signal analysis and real-time data streaming to memory. A significant feature is
the use of polyphase-filters, which can even be used overlapped and shifted. In addition to
'real-time' measurements of all frequencies concurrently, the Spectran V5 also offers a conventional
'swept spectrum analyzer' mode via an ultra-fast Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) sweep. The
V5 provides up to 800 MSa/s I/Q for extremely fast frequency hops of the local oscillator.
This design allows for sophisticated measurements over the full frequency range and offers
a pulse detection of 10 ns, with 20 GHz scans or logs performed in less than 20 mS.
The Spectran V5 uses a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) for signal processing, with
a vector processor for statistical analysis and demodulation. The CPU is a powerful Dual Core
Blackfin DSP-CPU, which also drives the 800 × 480 pixel high-resolution color display and
touch screen. Incoming signals are sampled by a real-time 14 Bit A/D converter, providing
a dynamic range of 80 dB, and are stored in a 200 GB capacity internal memory.
A USB 2.0 connection allows a PC to control the V5 or to show analysis results with a larger
display. The included RTSA PC Analysis software turns the V5 into a fully-featured benchtop
spectrum analyzer, providing powerful field analysis or comprehensive benchtop laboratory
measurements. The RTSA software is available for MAC OS, Linux and Windows and comes with
lifelong free upgrades.
Available in 4 different versions, the V5 offers solutions for almost every application
and budget. Additional options and accessories for the Spectran V5, such as a 6 GHz IQ
vector signal generator, a 40 GHz oscilloscope/peak power meter, an OXCO time base or
a GPS Logger including compass, gyro, tilt and barometer, are also available to extend the
V5's usefulness. An integrated 8000mAh lithium polymer (LiPo) battery gives a standalone operation
time of two hours for this lightweight (2 lb) handheld RF reference tool.
Designed for applications such as spectrum studies, RF and microwave measurements, interference
hunting, compliance testing or Wi-Fi and wireless network measurements, the SPECTRAN V5 is
the ideal RF spectrum analyzer for making fast, reliable and cost efficient measurements.
Made in Germany by Aaronia AG, Europe's award-winning, innovative manufacturer of RF site
survey tools, handheld spectrum analyzers, antennas and EMC test probes, the Aaronia Spectran
V5 is available now from Saelig Company, Inc., technical distributor for Aaronia USA. For
