September 15, 2010 - ZTEC Instruments introduces the ZT8101 RF Test Set, comprised of three unique PXI instruments, the ZT8441 RF/IF Digitizer, the ZT8711 LO Synthesizer, and the ZT8611 RF Downconverter. The ZT8101 RF Test Set delivers general purpose, image free signal analysis up to 9GHz. Additionally, the ZT8101 can be paired with other third party instruments, like the Phase Matrix Preselector (PXI-1420) and Microwave Downconverter (PXI-1410), providing frequency range extension to 26.5 GHz. The ZT8101 Test Set comes standard with
Ultra wide 150 MHz modulation bandwidth to meet current and future communication protocols including JTRS, WCDMA, LTE, and WiMax.
Vector signal analysis capability for complex digital modulation analysis including error vector magnitude (EVM) and adjacent channel power measurement
Compatibility features for 3rd party RF instruments for frequency range extension
Synthetic, flexible, future-proof hardware
Image free down conversion for high performance spectral analysis, spur search, and false measurement avoidance The ZT8101 RF Test Set has an intuitive GUI, ZSignal. ZSignal provides advanced integration and support with a simple and familiar interface to ease the transition from a bench-top spectrum analyzer to its modular instrument counterpart. ZSignal was built in accordance with ZScope and ZWave platforms to minimize the time needed to integrate the instrument into both new and legacy software.
