Receiver offers flexible spectrum monitoring

The R&S ESMW monitoring receiver covers a frequency range of 8 kHz to 40 GHz with a real-time bandwidth of up to 2 GHz. Useful for fixed and mobile spectrum monitoring, the instrument’s ITU-compliant RF performance and modular upgradability enable it to measure both current and future wideband signals in high-density spectrum environments.

The ESMW calculates real-time spectrum by applying FFT signal processing with at least 50% overlap. Signals as short as 75 ns can be reliably detected with 100% probability of intercept (POI) and full amplitude accuracy. A panorama scan option for the ESMW enables the instrument to perform spectral scans with speeds of up to 2.6 THz/s and adjustable frequency resolution. With a real-time bandwidth of 2 GHz, panorama scans are perceived as almost real-time operation.

In addition to standalone operation, the ultra-wideband ESMW can be used to upgrade existing R&S radio monitoring systems thanks to backward compatibility with the company’s ESMD and ESME wideband monitoring receivers. Its open remote-control interfaces and well-documented output data formats also enable integration into various third-party systems.
