Breakthrough Signal Analysis for 5G and Satcom

At mmWave frequencies, signal quality is more susceptible to impairments such as modulation errors, phase noise, and distortion. The new N9042B UXA X-Series signal analyzer provides the industry's widest analysis bandwidth and deepest dynamic range to help you solve your most difficult mmWave challenges.

  • 2 Hz to 110 GHz unbanded, preselected frequency range
  • 11 GHz maximum analysis bandwidth
  • 4 GHz of corrected analysis bandwidth to test high-throughput communications designs
  • Industry's best error vector magnitude (EVM)
  • Industry's best swept displayed average noise level (DANL)

Test Application Software

Cellular Communications

Testing 5G components and devices per the 3GPP 5G New Radio (5G NR) standard Releases 15 and 16 requires a solution with higher accuracy, sensitivity, and bandwidth capability.

The N9042B signal analyzer will help you test the true performance of your transmitter designs with the industry's best residual error vector magnitude (EVM) and 5G NR signal analysis software suite to perform transmitter downlink and uplink measurements with one-button simplicity.

Satellite Communications

Today's satellite communication systems require a more sophisticated approach to wideband component characterization. You need a test solution with the widest analysis bandwidth and highest frequency range to characterize the performance of your satellite designs.

The N9042B UXA X-Series signal analyzer and M9384B VXG signal generator deliver 4 GHz of corrected bandwidth for analysis and generation. The UXA also provides the highest unbanded, preselected frequency range to help you characterize your most sophisticated satellite designs.
