9kHz to 40 GHz RF Power Sensor Series

LadyBug Technologies’ LB5900 series of patented no-zero no-cal before use, USB RF Power Sensors offers coverage from 9kHz to 40GHz. The series’ broad frequency range combined with exceptional sensitivity make it ideal for satellite, radar, EMC testing along with defense applications and general testing. The sensors provide several frequency dependent offset tables for use by calibration laboratories or users requiring offset correction for attenuators, cables, or for other use. The tables are easily accessible using standard SCPI commands through the USBTMC or USB HID interfaces or by using the sensor’s included software.

Software Defined Radar 

Ancortek launched an advanced product SDR 2400AD2 especially implemented with phase-looked loop (PLL) and dual receiving channels. The software-defined architecture offers a great deal on system compactness and flexibility. Without modifying hardware, operating modes, waveforms, bandwidths, as well as processing functions can be changed within the system to adopt in different scenarios and applications. In addition, the SDR 2400AD2 radar system is compact and lightweight enough to fit into a coat pocket.


MM-Wave Spectrum Analyzer

Anritsu introduced the Spectrum Master™ MS2760A family, the world’s first ultraportable, millimeter wave spectrum analyzers that verify high-frequency designs, including those used in 5G and E-band applications. The MS2760A shatters the cost, size, and performance barriers associated with traditional large form factor instruments to more efficiently advance technology development. In addition to 5G and E-band, the MS2760A significantly improves test procedures and lowers the cost-of-test in other fast-growing mmWave applications.
