The MS2830A is a spectrum analyzer/signal analyzer with top-class measurement speed at medium-class price. It has best-of-class dynamic range (average noise level [DANL]: –153 dBm, third-order intermodulation distortion [TOI]: +15 dBm) and excellent ±0.3 dB (typ.) total level accuracy using unique level calibration technology.
The MS2830A supports an optional vector signal generator (VSG) and can be used as a reference signal source for tests of parts Tx characteristics or as a signal source for tests of Rx characteristics. Installing the VSG option cuts investment costs and footprint size. The IQproducer PC software generates waveform patterns for the VSG, supporting various communication methods, including LTE FDD, LTE TDD (TD-LTE), Mobile WiMAX, etc.
The analysis options up to 125 MHz can also be installed along with various measurement software tools supporting PC-free modulation analysis of various communication systems.
For example, installing the LTE Downlink/Uplink Measurement Software and LTE IQproducer LTE supports Tx characteristics/modulation analysis for LTE FDD BTS and Rx characteristics tests. Installing the LTE TDD Downlink Measurement Software and LTE TDD IQproducer supports Tx characteristics/modulation analysis for LTE TDD (TD-LTE) and Rx characteristics tests. The measurement software options support key wireless communication systems, such as WLAN IEEE802.11a/11b/11g/11j/11n/11p/11ac, Mobile WiMAX, W-CDMA/HSPA/HSPA Evolution, GSM/EDGE, TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000/1xEV-DO, as well as 3GPP LTE/LTE-Advanced (FDD/TDD). Additionally, there are general-purpose analysis software tools for modulation analysis of multiplex TDMA systems using BPSK, QPSK, O-QPSK, Π/4 DPQPSK, 8PSK, 16QAM, 64QAM, 256QAM, 2FSK, and 4FSK modulation methods. Combining these hardware and software options in custom configurations supports the perfect measurement solution for every need.
