Selecting Spectrum and Network Analyzers

VISTA, Calif. - Feb. 2, 2024 - PRLog -- Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post that covers the functions of Spectrum and Network analyzers to better understand which type of test equipment is better suited to support your project requirements. Instrumentation-level analyzers come in many shapes and sizes, including as signal, spectrum, and network analyzers. Knowing what each analyzer does will help find the best one for the job.

Spectrum analyzers measure signal magnitude as a function of frequency. They detect known signals, such as radio waves, and unknown signals, such as interference and noise. Spectrum analyzers work with antennas for over-the-air (OTA) measurements of wireless communications signals and radar pulses. While signal and spectrum analyzers offer extensive measurement results on OTA signals, they lack the capabilities of network analyzers (NAs) for studying the effects of electronic networks on signals. Various types of NAs, such as scalar network analyzers (SNAs) and vector network analyzers (VNAs), help evaluate high-speed digital and high-frequency analog circuits.

When comparing spectrum/signal analyzer specifications, frequency range is a good place to start, with the cost of an analyzer typically increasing with frequency. Learn more about the other features to look for when starting a new project by reading the full blog post on Axiom's website:
