   ADVANTEST R3172   Description / Specification:    
ADVANTEST R3172 26.5 GHz Spectrum Analyzer

The Advantest R3172 is a high performance analyzer with an average display noise level of -104 dBm/RBW 1 kHz at 26.5-GHz. This enables a wider relative measurement range when measuring high frequencies or weak signals against a reference waveform. The R3172 also provides high performance with SSB phase noise of -91 dBc/Hz @26.5 GHz/20 kHz offset by providing an internal local transmitter with a high level of purity. A variety of optional external mixers are available for the R3172 spectrum analyzer for measuring various high-frequency signals. By selecting the optimum option, the measurement frequency can be set from 26.5 GHz to 110 GHz. Since the frequency characteristics specific to each mixer are corrected and the data is saved in the internal memory of R3172, the level can be read directly. The R3172 is equipped with a 6-dB bandwidth filter of 9 kHz/120 kHz/1 MHz and a QP detector. In addition, an optical 200-Hz narrow band-pass filter is available, enabling noise measurement of high frequency bands that will be increasingly in demand in the future. Specifications. Frequency range: 9 kHz to 26.5 GHz. Frequency readout accuracy (Start, Stop, CF, Marker): ±(Frequency readout × frequency reference error + span × span accuracy + RBW × 0.15 + 60Hz). Frequency span Range: 1 kHz to 26.5 GHz, 0 Hz (zero span). Frequency span Accuracy: <= ± 1%. Resolution bandwidth At 3 dB Range: 1 kHz to 3 MHz 1-3-10 sequence.

Average Power
Average power means that the energy transfer rate is to be averaged over many periods of the lowest frequency involved. For a CW signal, the lowest frequency and highest frequency are the same, so average power and power are the same. For an amplitude modulated wave, the power must be averaged over many periods of the modulation component of the signal as well.

A harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency, i.e. if the fundamental frequency is f, the harmonics have frequencies 2f, 3f, 4f, . . . etc.

Phase Noise
Phase noise is the frequency domain representation of rapid, short-term, random fluctuations in the phase of a waveform, caused by time domain instabilities. Phase noise (L(f)) is typically expressed in units of dBc/Hz, representing the noise power relative to the carrier contained in a 1 Hz bandwidth centered at a certain offsets from the carrier.
