The MS2760A is the latest release in the Ultra-portable family of USB driven instruments. To test the versatility of this new class of instrumentation Signal Hunters’ Luke and Becca decided to see if they could find a hidden microwave signal by mounting the new MS2760A on a commercial drone.
The MS2760A is truly pocket sized, but big on performance with industry leading dynamic range, sweep speed, and amplitude accuracy. Its ultraportable size enables direct connect to almost any DUT, eliminating the need for lossy, expensive cables or antennas. It’s the world's first handheld millimeter-wave spectrum analyzer providing continuous coverage from 9 kHz up to 110 GHz. Ideal for the growing 5G network development market, as well as other fast-growing mmWave applications, like 802.11ad / WiGig, E-band microwave wireless communications, satellite communications, and automotive radar.
This video demonstration is designed as a simple method for displaying the features and capabilities of the new Power Master MA24507A Frequency Selectable mmWave Power Analyzer.
In many cases of designing and building cellular infrastructure, there are variables that the installers are and are not able to control. Important variables that are controllable are the losses in the cable feed system due to reflections and absorption. This white paper focuses on the system losses due to reflections, which can be measured using a cable and an antenna analyzer such as the Anritsu Site Master.
As Over The Air (OTA) measurements become more important in 5G technologies, Anritsu proposes a new measurement method for solving millimeter-wave OTA measurements that solves the current Far-Field Measurement (FFM) challenges, and helps to reduce measurement costs. Based on actual measurement results, Anritsu's Near-Field Measurement (NFM) method is capable of offering improved measurement sensitivity. Anritsu also introduces an NFM solution for the E-band using Non-Linear Transmission Line technology. This white paper discusses how Near-Field Measurement technology works, the advantages of using it, and comparisons between NFM and FFM measurement results.
Traditional cell sites are equipped with a ground-based radio connected to tower-mounted antennas by a long run coaxial cable. These cables have high loss and are vulnerable to interference, which negatively impacts maintenance costs and system performance. Wireless networks have evolved to using a remote radio head (RRH) where the radio equipment is connected to the baseband unit (BBU) by a fiber optic cable. With this new architecture comes the necessity for an equally flexible interface between the BBU and RRH. This white paper presents the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) technology that is now used in the majority of new installations.
