The capabilities of Agilent's N934xC series of handheld spectrum analysers have been expanded. Peak power measurement of pulsed signals and remote control are a couple of the additional features, which would increase field application versatility. Agilent stressed the importance of software and firmware updates because not only do they help in microwave analysis and RF acceleration, but they also address evolving industry needs. (Read our recent report on what makes an ideal handheld spectrum analyser.)

 Agilent's N934xC handheld spectrum analysers

New standard features on the 20GHz N9344C, 13.6GHz N9343C, and 7GHz N9342C handheld spectrum analysers include:

- SCPI programming through socket and telnet connection;

- RRC (root raised cosine) filter for measuring LTE/W-CDMA channel power and adjacent channel power ratio;

- Keypad lock/unlock with password; and

- Channel standards for LTE, WiFi, and WiMAX.

Optional features include peak and average power-sensor measurement, additional security measures, and base band input (N9342C only). These enhancements augment the existing capabilities of the N934xC series, such as MIL PRF 28800F Class 2 compliance, one-button measurement, clear-view screen, and backlit keys. The analysers are lightweight, weighing just 7.9 lbs (3.6kg), and their field-replaceable battery delivers up to four hours of operation.

Prices for the N934xC series of handheld spectrum analysers start at $11,440.
