Published: 18th October 2018

Rohde & Schwarz introduces three new base models to the Spectrum Rider FPH family, extending their capability into the microwave frequency range.

Here’s a brief look at the main features and applications of this newly extended family of portable spectrum analysers.

What’s new?

  • 3 new base models (6 GHz, 13.6 GHz, 26.5 GHz)
  • software upgrades extend capability up to 31 GHz

Extended range of measurement tasks across varied applications

These higher-frequency models allow the Spectrum Rider FPH to carry out an extensive range of measurement tasks in the field and lab. It’s an ideal tool for a variety of applications:

  • verifying signal transmission over 5G, broadcast, radar and satellite communications links

Supports everyday measurement tasks in:

  • aerospace and defence
  • mobile network testing
  • broadcasting
  • regulatory sector
  • education

Perfect for mobile use

  • lightweight (only 2.5kg)
  • long battery life (goes for more than 6 hours without the need to recharge)
  • wireless remote control from a mobile device

Seamless frequency upgrades

Upgrading via keycode gives you the flexibility to extend your analyser’s frequency with minimal disruption as there’s no downtime and no recalibration.

Real-Time vs. Sampling Oscilloscopes: What Are the Differences?

All modern oscilloscopes are categorized as digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO) which digitally sample, store, and display a signal to the user - but the technique for accomplishing this can vary from one scope to another. Two distinct categories you’ve probably heard about are real-time scopes and sampling scopes, each of which have advantages for specific applications. Understanding the differences between these two instruments can help determine which one is right for your use case.
