C/N measurement using the channel power measurement

Handheld spectrum analyzer enables easy C/N ratio measurement.
  Judgement of stable receiving of such as digital broadcasting is made easy.


In communication by digital modulation such as digital broadcasting, the carrier power vs noise ratio (C / N ratio) is important for stable receiving. Because deterioration of C / N ratio causes a rapid deterioration of the bit error rate (BER). As a result, it becomes impossible to reproduce the transmitted data correctly.

In our handheld spectrum analyzer MSA438, C / N ratio can be measured using "Channel power measurement" function.
