Wireless & Cellular Communications

Wider analysis bandwidth is becoming increasingly important to characterize the next generation of wireless and communications devices. Now you can have an ideal compact solution with superior performance to satisfy your wide bandwidth requirements at low frequencies for device characterization.

The N9032B PXA X-Series signal analyzer provides up to 2 GHz analysis bandwidth on all models, including the cost-effective 8.4 GHz model. PathWave measurement application software enables you to quickly and easily characterize 802.11be and 5G NR devices. The powerful new CPU enables 40% faster time to actionable insights. The N9032B PXA gives you more ways to optimize DANL and dynamic range with its unique signal path front-end. ​

Satellite Communications

Today's satellite communication systems require a more sophisticated approach to characterize wideband components — one that supports wide analysis bandwidth even at low range frequencies. Complex test setups introduce measurement errors and extend measurement time. 

With a corrected analysis bandwidth of up to 2 GHz and powerful PathWave Vector Signal Analysis (89600 VSA) software, the N9032B PXA offers the best swept DANL and EVM in its class. RCal increases accuracy without the need for complex system calibration. 

EMSO and Electronic Warfare

Testing newer, sophisticated, high-performance EMSO requires much lower DANL for faster spur search than before. The N9032B PXA with PathWave Vector Signal Analysis (89600 VSA) software provides outstanding DANL, faster spur search, and extended bandwidth, reducing test time.

Thanks to the exceptional dynamic range, you can visualize wideband signals and agile signals up to 2 GHz bandwidth. With the 4U-high compact design, you no longer have to sacrifice performance for lab space.
