Keysight Technologies has introduced the Satellite Signal Monitoring Reference Solution enables the engineer to monitor large blocks of spectrum and perform precise digital modulation analysis to quickly and efficiently validate satellite signal integrity. Optimised for high throughput, low test cost, and a small footprint, this Reference Solution is the first to provide sequential scanning using a single PXI vector signal analyser.
The new Reference Solution uses Keysight’s measurement expertise in a combination of PXI hardware and software. The Reference Solution also supports stepped spectrum analysis with fast display refresh rates and multi-band scanning at greater than 280 GHz per second, and the ability to zoom in on signals of interest within the IF bandwidth with its industry leading 89600 VSA software.
A robust and cost-effective sequential scanning configuration utilises a single, shared PXI vector signal analyser to monitor and scan multiple bands.
The M9393A PXIe Performance Vector Signal Analyser, a high performance hardware component of this solution, offers built-in digital image rejection and noise correction for accurate, clean results up to 27 GHz. Solid-state switching is utilised for fast performance and long life.
The 89600 VSA Software uses Keysight’s measurement science expertise to enable extensive signal analysis, including spectrum scanning and zooming in on signals of interest.
