Built-in functions include channel and multichannel power, pulsed measurement, gated sweep, occupied bandwidth, spectrum emission mask, TOI measurement, total harmonic distortion, AM/FM and digital demodulation analysis, X-dB down, and phase noise measurement.
The gated sweep function is indispensable for analyzing time-division multiple access (TDMA) signals.
5 dB, resolution bandwidths from 10 Hz to 10 MHz, signal tracking, gated sweep, RMS detector, fast time domain analysis and more.
During the gated sweep, the noise is measured with a peak detector for a time period only half as long as during the normal sweep.
