Keysight offers spectrum analysis solution for satellite industry

Keysight Technologies announced a real-time spectrum analysis (RTSA) solution enabling up to 2 GHz RTSA bandwidth for use with the Keysight N9042B UXA Signal Analyzer – targeting the satellite communications (SATCOM) industry.
Keysight solution for satellite operators
The software-based RTSA solution monitors satellite signals and interference, allowing satellite network operators to provide the highest quality of service (QoS) to users.

Keysight’s RTSA solution enables the N9042B UXA Signal Analyzer to conduct capture and analysis of elusive and transient signals with industry-leading optical data interface (ODI) streaming up to 2 GHz.

Keysight’s field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology enables a multi-threaded and parallelized RTSA measurement up to 2 GHz bandwidth to minimize the time gap between processing / rendering and re-capturing signals. This reduces analysis time and improves the probability of intercept.

Keysight RTSA test solution enables rapid, wide bandwidth streaming and capture of hours of signal recordings for analysis.

RTSA solution can accelerate innovation using digital twins that speed design and testing of satellite payloads, lower prototyping costs, and speed time-to-market.

The RTSA solution is designed to run on the N9042B UXA Signal Analyzer, a signal analyzer / spectrum analyzer that tests millimeter-wave performance in 5G, satellite, and radar.
