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.

How to Measure a MOSFET I-V Curve

One of the best ways to ensure a MOSFET is functioning properly and meets specifications is to determine its characteristics by tracing I-V curves. There are a number of output characteristics requiring I-V tests; you can derive gate leakage, breakdown voltage, threshold voltage, transfer characteristics, and drain current all by simply tracing I-V characteristics and verifying the device is working as it should.
