MSA Analyseur de spectre
MSA c’est quoi ?
Basic MSA, Build Level 1:
Spectrum Analyzer, with these specifications:
3 band ranges: 0-1 GHz, 1-2 GHz, and 2-3 GHz (or higher using harmonic mixing)
Frequency Resolution: less than 3 Hz
Instantainous Dynamic range: greater than 100 dB. Average 110 dB.
Sensitivity: -20 dBm to -120 dBm
Resolution Bandwidth: Optional, with Resolution Bandwidth filter selection.
When not used as an SA, the Basic MSA can provide these other Functions:
Logging Voltmeter (future development with A to D Converter)
Fixed, 64 MHz Clock Source, 50 ohm, square (Master Oscillator)
Variable, 1-1.5 GHz, 50 ohm, sine. Selectable in steps. (PLO 2)
Variable, 1-2 GHz, 50 ohm, sine, <3 Hz resolution. (PLO 1)
Variable, 0-1 GHz, 50 ohm, sine, <3 Hz resolution. (PLO 1 – PLO 2)
Variable, 2-3 GHz, 50 ohm, sine, <3 Hz resolution. (PLO 1 + PLO 2)
CW or Swept DDS Signal Generator, 0-32 MHz, 50 ohm, sine, 0.014 Hz resolution. (DDS 1)
MSA with Tracking Generator, MSA/TG, Build Level 2:
Build Level 2 is the addition of 3 modules to add a Tracking Generator to the Basic MSA. The following functions are added:
Spectrum Analyzer with Signal Generator
Spectrum Analyzer with Tracking Generator
Normal Tracking Generator, or
Offset Tracking Generator, or
Reversed Tracking Generator, with or without offset
Scalar Network Analyzer
Crystal Analyzer, a Crystal Tester
Additional Frequency Sources:
Variable, 1-2 GHz, 50 ohm, sine, <3 Hz resolution. (PLO 3)
CW or Swept DDS Signal Generator, 0-32 MHz, 50 ohm, sine, 0.014 Hz resolution. (DDS 3)
VNA, Vector Network Analyzer, MSA/TG/VNA, Build Level 3:
This is the addition of 2 more modules to the MSA/TG (Build Level 2) to create a Phase Measurement System.
Vector Network Analyzer, Transmission
Vector Network Analyzer, Reflection
The VNA has the same Functions as the Basic MSA and MSA/TG, plus the Functions:
RLC Analysis, Circuit conversion
Component Meter, for measuring resistors, capacitors, inductors.
Coax Tester, a Transmission Line Analyzer
MSA Requirements for the Home Computer and its Software:
PC or Laptop Computer (any speed), with USB 2 or LPT standard or enhanced parallel port (SPP, EPP). Monitor can be any size, but MSA software uses 800 by 600 pixel resolution.
