How to use Signal and Spectrum Analyzer


Signal and Spectrum Analyzer is a device that measures electrical signals and spectrum. It is commonly used in fields such as wireless communication systems, microwave circuit design, radar systems, and medical equipment. Its main functions include measuring signal power, spectrum shape, modulation mode, frequency and other parameters.

The following are the general steps for using Signal and Spectrum Analyzer:

Connect the device under test: Connect the device under test to the Signal and Spectrum Analyzer. When connecting, make sure the connection is firm and reliable and meets the specifications of the device.

Turn on the instrument: After plugging in the power cord, press the power button on the host computer to start the instrument. After startup, the instrument will perform self-test and calibration to ensure measurement accuracy.

Set parameters: Set the instrument measurement parameters according to the characteristics of the signal being measured, such as selecting an appropriate frequency range, selecting an appropriate attenuation, etc. Settings are usually done through interfaces such as touch screens and knobs.

Perform measurement: After completing parameter settings, perform measurement operation. At this time, you can see various parameters of the measured signal reflected on the instrument display, such as power, frequency, modulation and other information.

Analyze results: Download test results from the instrument screen or storage device for analysis or subsequent processing.

In short, the operation of Signal and Spectrum Analyzer requires certain electronic knowledge and careful observation of test parameters in order to obtain accurate test results.
