See details...

FAQ 2013-06-05

Why is option MPB required at frequencies above 3.6 GHz for real-time spectrum analysis in an X-Series signal analyzer?
At frequencies above 3.6 GHz, a YIG Preselector (a tracking band-pass filter) is used to reject out-of-band signals. This filter’s bandwidth is significantly less than 85 or 160 MHz so it must be bypassed if the user wishes to utilize the full 85 or 160 MHz of real-time bandwidth in their PXA.

FAQ 2013-06-05

Can I get the real-time I/Q samples out via LAN on my MXA or PXA signal analyzer with option RT1 or RT2?
No, however you can save the real-time trace (Frequency & Amplitude) data into a .csv file from the spectrogram trace (10,000) traces.

FAQ 2013-06-05

Why is option B85 or B1X required for real-time spectrum analyzer on an MXA or PXA signal analyzer?
All the real-time processing takes place in the option B85 or B1X hardware.

FAQ 2013-06-05

I am looking at a 160 MHz OFDM signal at 5 GHz on my MXA or PXA signal analyzer. Why can’t I see the whole signal?
The instrument preselector is limiting the bandwidth of the MXA or PXA input.
