Pocketable RF spectrum analyzer provides
features comparable to full-size desktop analyzers in a tiny package
January 10, 2018 - Fairport, NY, USA: Saelig Company,
Inc., (Saelig) (www.saelig.com) announces
the availability of the
Triarchy Technologies VSA6G2A Vector Spectrum Analyzer - an economical
USB RF tool that plugs into the USB port of a PC and is controlled with the provided
PC application software. It offers almost all of the functionality of a benchtop spectrum
analyzer. Its frequency range of operation is from 100 Hz to 6.2 GHz, with
an amplitude measurement range of -140 dBm to 24 dBm. The RBW (resolution bandwidth)
range is from 0.2 Hz to 10 MHz and the noise level (DANL) is as low as -140 dBm.
The VSA6G2A is very compact (4" x 1" x 1") and easy to use. The software user interface
has been designed to resemble the front panel of a standard desktop spectrum analyzer,
allowing users to use the application intuitively without a steep learning curve. Touch
screen support is also provided, making the VSA6G2A quick to operate.
The VSA6G2A's demodulation capabilities allow it to measure analog and digitally modulated
signals, such as AM, FM, PM, MSK, and QPSK. Additionally, the VSA6G2A has I and Q signal
ports, enabling it to work as a wide-band I/Q receiver platform. Visualizing pulse modulated
signals is usually not very easy, but with the VSA6G2A's trigger input it is straightforward
to view these waveforms.
The analyzer's operation is divided into two bands to cover the complete operating
range: a low band (100 Hz to 2 MHz) and a high band (1 MHz to 6.2 GHz).
The VSA6G2A offers an N (female) RF signal input connector and a mini-B USB connector
for interfacing with the PC. Four MMCX connectors provide I/Q port access.
Signal spectra are clearly displayed on the attached PC, as well as density, waterfall
images, and demodulated waveforms and eye diagrams. The waterfall display helps in showing
signals like frequency hopping Bluetooth. The VSA channel power function makes it simple
to measure signal power automatically. Production testing is also facilitated when using
preselected Pass/Fail criteria.
Weighing only 3.5 oz. and powered from a PC's USB port, the VSA6G2A is ideal for
field test and installation since it can be easily slipped into a laptop bag and used
for monitoring RF signals in temperatures from -10decC to +50°C. It is also suitable
for use in benchtop EMC testing with near-field antennas.
Made by Triarchy Technologies Corp., an innovative Canadian RF design house, the VSA6G2A
Vector Spectrum Analyzer is available now at $950 from Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport,
NY, Triarchy's authorized U.S. distributor.
