Aeroflex has announced the 3280A Series spectrum analysers with 30MHz digital demodulator and generic vector demodulation as standard features.

Digital demodulation allows engineers to analyse the transmitter characteristics of wireless devices.

The 3280A Series includes optional measurement suites including WiMAX, WLAN, UMTS, CDMA2000 and GSM/EDGE.

By including a 30MHz digital demodulator as standard, the 3280A Series offers frequency coverage from 3Hz to 26.5GHz, RF and microwave specifications and high connectivity.

The 3280A Series maintains a +/-0.15dB up to 3GHz level of accuracy.

Other performance features include an local oscillator (LO) phase noise or less than -115dBm/Hz, 1GHz/10kHz offset and +18dBm third order intermodulation (TOI) performance.

Digital intermediate frequency (IF) offers resolution bandwidths from 5MHz to 1Hz.

The Windows XP operating system, internal hard drive and built-in CD-ROM allows for a range of interfaces, including LAN access, USB interface, RS-232, IEEE 488 (GPIB) and VGA outputs.

Centronics parallel ports are provided for printer, mouse and keyboard connectivity.

An optional removable hard drive is available for when the instrument is used in a secure area.

The 3280A Series has a 10.4in LCD display with ample viewing area, so data can be easily seen - even in split-screen mode, or with multiple windows open.

Three traces can be displayed per window and as many as nine markers can be selected with a marker table viewable in an alternate window.

Built-in functions can simplify the evaluation of many common measurements and the 3280A Series offers several of these, including: channel power, adjacent channel power, occupied bandwidth, spectrum emission mask, TOI measurement, harmonic distortion, X dB down and phase-noise measurement.
