55 Series USB Peak Power Sensor Gains Fast Measurement Mode to Accompany 195 MHz Video Bandwidth, 3 ns Rise Time Performance Leadership
Boonton, a Wireless Telecom Group company, has added a new fast measurement mode to the 55 Series USB wideband power sensor adding to its industry leading 100,000 measurements per second capabilities. This new measurement mode unleashes the power of the Real-Time Power Processing architecture by analyzing a signal as it is being captured and quantifying user defined events such as a series of pulses, bursts, or time intervals. This real-time analysis is quickly available to the user through a fast measurement readout of RF power measurements. These measurements, such as peak, average, crest factor and minimum power enable, continuous, real-time monitoring of physical layer performance. Combined with 3 ns rise time and 195 MHz video bandwidth, real-time measurement capabilities like this enable testing and characterizing of complex WiFi, radar, MRI and RF amplifiers at high speeds not previously obtainable.
