Handheld Signal Analyzer (Sweep plus Real Time Spectrum Analyzer)

What's spectrum analyzer?

Basic instruments for signal observation


Appeal points of MSA500 (1/2)

  1. Offering conventional sweep system and real tim e system based on Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)
    • By using the strong point of each system, the appli cation range spreads markedly.
    • The world’s first handheld signal analyzer with two systems.
  2. Four analysis functions in real time system
    • Spectrum analysis
    • Spectrogram analysis
    • OverWrite analysis
    • Time domain analysis・・・ Power vs Time・Frequency vs Time・Phase vs Time・IQ vs Time・Q vs I
  3. Powerful trigger function (real time system)
    • Channel power trigger
    • Power trigger
    • IF level trigger
    • External trigger
  4. Measurement and data collection in field
    • Compact 162(W) x 71(H) x 265(D)mm
    • Lightweight 1.8kg (including battery)
    • Four-hour battery operation
    • Storage into USB memory
  5. Minimization of analog circuit, low power consumption design and digital circuit by FPGA
    • Solving heat problem
    • Four-hour battery operation
    • Compact and Lightweight
  6. FFT operation speed for about 1 ms per screen (1 024 points)
    • Achieved by a digital signal processing circuit and DSP (Digital Signal Processor)
  7. The simultaneous development of the five models according to frequency bands and applications.
    • Reduction of development cost
    • Expansion of application
  8. Low price
    • JPY 748,000 to 1,300,000 (5 models)
    • Competitor (Sweep + Real time model) → Bench top (Handheld doesn’t exist.
      • Rohde & Schwarz : FSVR7 JPY 6,473,000
      • Agilent : N9030A PXA+RT1 JPY 5,858,000
