Unexpected RF performance

Low Noise Floor

High sensitivity is critical in many applications, e.g. when measuring extremely weak signals. The R&S®FPC1000 provides an extraordinarily low noise floor of –150 dBm (typ.). Add the optional R&S®FPC1000-B22 preamplifier to increase sensitivity even further down to –165 dBm (typ.).

High Max. Input Power

Measure 10 times more power with the R&S®FPC1000. Most entry level spectrum analyzers can measure up to +20 dBm (100 mW). The R&S®FPC1000 is capable of measuring high power signals of up to +30 dBm (1 W). The combination of low noise floor and high max. input power provides exceptionally wide measurement dynamic range in the R&S®FPC1000.

High resolution

160 % Higher Display Resolution

Higher resolution. The WXGA panel (1366 × 768 pixel) exceeds the VGA resolution (640 × 480 pixel) that had been standard among entry level spectrum analyzers by 160 %. Inspect measured signals in unprecedented clarity and razor-sharp detail.

26% Larger Display

See more. The R&S®FPC1000 has the largest display of any entry level spectrum analyzer. The new 26 cm (10.1") panel is 26 % larger than the display of other entry class spectrum analyzers (20 cm or 8"). The combination of high display resolution and a large display creates extraordinary user experience. Examine more measured signal on the instrument screen.

1 Hz Resolution Bandwidth

More details. The quality of RF measurements strongly depends on suitable resolution bandwidth settings. Finer resolution bandwidth means more spectral details. The R&S®FPC1000 is the only entry level spectrum analyzer with resolution bandwidth settings down to 1 Hz. Identify RF signal details with class-unprecedented measurement frequency resolution. Innovate with a large, high-resolution display and fine resolution bandwidth. Experience unexpected performance in the entry class.

Modulation Analysis

The R&S®FPC-K7 converts the R&S®FPC1000 into a modulation analyzer for measuring the modulation quality of amplitude or frequency-modulated signals.

The analog demodulation display shows the waveform as well as a summary of measurement parameters such as carrier power, carrier offset, modulation index (depth) for AM signals, frequency deviation for FM signals, SINAD, THD, etc. The modulation summary display provides user-definable limits for each measurement. Demodulated audio is supported via the built-in speaker or the headphone 
Basic digital modulation formats are used with many applications, e.g. near-field communications. The R&S®FPC1000 supports both ASK and FSK analysis. The digital modulation displays include trace, eye diagram, modulation error and symbol analysis. 1)

Easily verify the quality of the basic modulated signals with the R&S®FPC-K7 software option.

Advanced Measurements

Step up measurements. The R&S®FPC-K55 adds functions for measuring channel power, occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR), spectral emission mask (SEM), spurious emissions and third order intercept (TOI). It even provides a spectrogram display to provide easy insight into spectrum occupancy and time-varying signals. 2)

Experience advanced measurements on an entry level instrument.
