Quickly Adapt to Evolving Test Requirements of Wireless Devices

Built for wireless device test, the MXA signal analyzer helps you characterize signals from virtually any wireless device quickly and confidently with up-to-date parametric or RF functional tests. The intuitive multi-touch interface minimizes measurement complexity, even when working with cutting-edge devices.

  • See more with a wide frequency range of 10 Hz to 50 GHz with up to 160 MHz analysis bandwidth
  • Shorten test times with hardware-accelerated power measurements, rapid display updates, rapid marker peak searches, and fast sweeps
  • Get complete signal characterization by capturing longer I/Q samples
  • Accurately analyze complex signals with EVM as low as 0.3 percent (–50 dB)
  • Simplify testing with one-button measurements using PathWave X-Series measurement applications
  • Capture elusive or transient signals with full-band real-time spectrum analysis

Minimize Troubleshooting Time

The MXA signal analyzer helps you find and solve problems faster with correlated results, minimal setup time, and customized measurement displays. Color-coded results and coupled markers make it easy to identify measurements and important events occurring in your new-generation wireless devices.
