Microwave spectrum analysis in a lightweight, hand-held form

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.

Measuring the Control Loop Response of a Power Supply with an Oscilloscope

Power supplies and voltage regulators are typically designed to maintain a constant voltage over a particular current range. The supply should respond quickly to demand changes while maintaining a constant output, without excessive ringing or oscillation. To do this, power supplies are essentially amplifiers with a closed feedback loop.
