Easy measurements at mmWave to quickly characterize EUT for frequency, Tx bandwidth, Tx power, polarization and its propagation within target environment with handheld Spectrum Compact in V-band unit from SAF Tehnika. Spectrum Compact E-band and V-band portable analyzers can be used for measuring WiGig, Autmotive radars, Point to Point backhaul radios, Access Points and other products in 60 GHz or 80 GHz bands.

 

Spectrum Manager Software Introduction

Spectrum Manager is a free spectrum analysis PC software for SAF Tehnika’s Spectrum Compact. The Spectrum Manager can be used in both real-time (together with a Spectrum Compact device) and offline modes, and provides a variety of functions, such as PiB (Power in Band), overlay and min/max hold.

Record Time Plot

Cumulative trace mode helps to observe how the signal’s energy is divided within the spectrum, thus identifying the multipath effect.

Visual representation of spectrum displays in-band interference in user’s radio channel.

Helps user to quickly evaluate what is happening in the radio spectrum of their interest.

Visual representation of spectrum allows determining abnormalities in form and shape of the signal, thus indicating potential issues with the transmitter.

Displaying minimum and maximum signal levels aids in observing the fluctuation of signal and intermittent signals.

Visual representation of spectrum displays out-of-band interference near user’s radio channel.

Built-in path calculator allows having an estimation of received signal level.

Allows to perform quick measurement of received signal level in specific bandwidth, also can be used to measure channel’s bandwidth and separation.

Visualization of detected power levels over the time axis in the record mode can be used for more detailed spectrum analysis.
