MetricTest's Advantest U3700 Series with NEW option 010 Spectrum Analzyer up to 43 GHz

The Advantest U3700 Series with NEW option 010 is the first two-channel RF/microwave spectrum analyzer up to 43GHz (Ka Band) with two independent RF inputs in the world. At 14 lb with an optional battery, it is lightweight, portable and ideal for field use. Its all-digital architecture contributes to its affordable price (starting at $14,140) and lower maintenance cost and compact form factor. It offers time domain measurement capability to capture spectrum as power, frequency, phase, and I/Q as a function of time. LAN, USB and GPIB connectivity are standard features. The Advantest U3700 Series with new option 10 is like having two spectrum analyzers in one instrument. It increases productivity and functionality, reducing measuring time in half. Microwave Engineers can measure and display RF (Ka Band) and IF signals simultaneously and independently making it easier to troubleshoot the signal. It also allows you to compare a Golden Signal and DUT output simultaneously. For engineers that need to tune antennas, they can now look at both the horizontal and vertical polarization at the same time. Any application that requires two signal inputs will benefit with time and cost savings. The company says the Advantest U3700 Series with NEW option 10 is the only portable (14 lb or less) and battery operated spectrum analyzer that sweeps up to 43GHz covering the Ka Band in the market. This is possible due to its innovative all-digital architecture which allows a compact form factor and low power consumption without compromising high RF performance. In addition, option 10 provides two simultaneous input channels, a feature the company says no spectrum analyzer in any class can offer.
