Signal Hound SM435C real-time spectrum analyser
Signal Hound, a Washington state (USA) manufacturer of RF test equipment, has announced the release of the SM435C 43.5 GHz real-time spectrum analyser.
The SM435C is a high-performance spectrum analyser and monitoring receiver with a 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ port, which enables the device to communicate with a PC over long distances using fibre-optic cable. Tuning from 100 kHz to 43.5 GHz, the analyser has 160 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth (IBW), 110 dB of dynamic range, 1 THz/s sweep speed at 30 kHz RBW (using Nuttall windowing) and ultralow phase noise to arguably rival the more high-end spectrum analysers on the market.
Signal processing is distributed between a powerful Intel FPGA and an external PC with an Intel Core i7 processor. The spectrum analyser can be readily interfaced, using its local API, to an automated monitoring system or to automated test equipment. The API provides users the access needed to insert their own DSP algorithms into a calibrated stream of I/Q data.
The SM435C follows on from the SM435B, which utilises a USB3 data interface and features otherwise near-identical specifications. It is the latest in Signal Hound’s range of spectrum analysers and signal generators which cover a broad range of spectrum from 1 Hz to 43.5 GHz in an assortment of devices which cater to government, industry professionals and hobbyists.
The full range of Signal Hound products is represented in Australia and New Zealand by Silvertone Electronics of Wagga Wagga, NSW.
