|Real Time Spectrum Analyzer and RF Recorder Signal Hound BB60A||February 28, 2013|
Test Equipment Plus announces the newest expansion of its Signal Hound family with the release of BB60A Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer and RF Recorder.
Utilizing a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed link, the BB60A streams 140 MB/sec of digitized RF data to PC, 14-bit samples at 80 million samples per second, with 20 MHz of useable bandwidth.
As a spectrum analyzer, specially developed Application Programming Interface performs up to 1.2 million FFTs every second, delivering real-time spectrum data to open-source Graphical User Interface, or to your software application developed by a customer. Because of these immense processing requirements, a desktop PC with an Intel i7-2600 or better, or a laptop with an i7-3612QM or better is recommended.
Time-gated spectrum analysis is also available, allowing to specify a gate length and a gate delay relative to a provided trigger. This allows to see the spectrum at a specific time, for example to view the spectrum during the "on" time of a pulse-modulated signal.
