Test the real performance of your millimeter-wave (mmWave) innovations in 5G, satellite, radar, and more with our N9042B UXA X-Series signal analyzer and measurement applications. The N9042B provides the industry's widest analysis bandwidth and deepest dynamic range to help you solve your most difficult mmWave challenges — tight design margins and timelines, complex modulation, and stringent standards.
- Ensure your designs meet the latest standards with ready-to-use measurement applications and signal analysis software
- See signals clearly with an unbanded, preselected sweep from 2 Hz to 50 GHz and 4 GHz of analysis bandwidth
- Test the true performance of your 5G NR transmitter with the industry's best error vector magnitude (EVM)
- Find out-of-band emissions or spurs quickly in your radar designs with the industry's best swept displayed average noise level (DANL)
- Develop high-throughput satellite communication designs with 4 GHz of corrected analysis bandwidth
Test Application Software
PathWave X-Series measurement applications address ever-changing measurement requirements for the latest communications standards. Get ready-to-use measurements for cellular communication, wireless connectivity, aerospace/defense, and general-purpose.
The 89600 PathWave VSA software is a comprehensive set of tools for demodulation and vector signal analysis. With support for more than 75 signal standards and modulation types, these tools enable you to explore virtually every facet of a signal and optimize your most advanced designs.
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.
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.
