MORGAN HILL, Calif. -- Anritsu Company introduces version 2.0 of the Signature (MS2781A) High Performance Signal Analyzer that features up to 30 times faster operation speed, increased demodulation bandwidth, improved IQ vector output, and improved amplitude accuracy. In addition to the improved performance, Signature is now compatible with Anritsu's innovative MG3700A Vector Signal Generator, providing engineers with one of the most advanced solutions for measuring complex RF and microwave communications systems, including 3.5G and 4G.

Utilizing a unique architecture, Signature provides unprecedented spectrum analyzer performance as well as digital modulation analysis over the 100 Hz to 8 GHz frequency range. The new version of Signature has demodulation bandwidth of 50 MHz so it can capture, measure, and analyze wide modulation bandwidth signals. The signal analyzer also has improved amplitude accuracy of 0.65 dB.

Signature can now be combined with the MG3700A to create a highly versatile and accurate test solution for engineers working on proprietary or new digital modulation schemes. In this configuration, users can control the MG3700A from Signature, use MATLAB(R) to create advanced waveforms for the MG3700A, and capture signals with Signature for detailed analysis with MATLAB or playback by the MG3700A.

Signature, the only signal analyzer that can provide live update viewing of MATLAB-processed measurements, can output up to 10 Msamples of IQ vector data to MATLAB in just a few seconds. The seamless integration between Signature and MATLAB now includes a handshaking function; since Signature can indicate when a new trace is available and then wait for MATLAB before starting a new measurement, users can quickly and unambiguously capture and analyze multiple traces.
