Covering the 9 kHz to 7.8 GHz frequency range, the MS2683A has typical dynamic range of 156 dB and 64 Msamples/s A/D signal conversion. The spectrum analyzer has displayed average noise level of < 122 dBm maximum input. The high-end measurement capability allows the MS2683A to analyze signals used in W-CDMA/ CDMA2000, IMT-200, Bluetooth, IS-95, GSM, IS-136, PCS, IEEE 802.11, WLAN, and MMDS systems.
The MS2683A is designed so that a number of common measurements can be made automatically, including occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel power, noise power, average power, and template comparison measurements.
For remote control and data collection, the MS2683A offers both an RS-232 Serial Port and a 120 kB/s GPIB interface standard. An optional 10Base-T interface is also available. Optional Windows based software packages allow full analysis of GSM and W-CDMA signals.
