Anritsu Corporation has introduced the MS2840A signal analyser that features a broad frequency coverage of 9 kHz to 44.5 GHz and best-in-class close-in single sideband (SSB) phase noise performance. The MS2840A is a highly accurate tool to conduct wideband and narrowband measurements on next-generation 4G/5G designs such as microwave and mm wave wireless backhaul, 79 GHz band automobile radar, satellite communications and very high frequency/ultra high frequency private mobile radio, during R&D and manufacturing.

The MS2840A is designed with an advanced high performance oscillator to achieve close-in SSB phase noise performance of -123 dBc/Hz at 1 GHz measurement frequency and 10 kHz offset frequency. The device features various convenient measurement functions for measuring Tx characteristics, including wireless transmitter spurious, adjacent channel leakage power, spectrum mask and frequency count.
