Boonton has introduced the RTP4000 series of Real-Time True Average Power sensors. These sensors, integrated in a compact USB form factor, deliver a dynamic range from -60 dBm to +20 dBm, a frequency range from 6 kHz to 6 GHz and a rate of 100,000 measurements per second.
The True Average capabilities of these sensors enable accurate capture and measurement of pulsed, modulated and CW signals. The RTP4000 True Average power sensors go beyond reporting numeric power measurements and provide a pulse profiling trace mode with 175 kHz video bandwidth.
Boonton’s Power Analyzer Software Suite turns any computer into a RF power meter with an intuitive software interface that provides a range of measurement and analysis tools.
The API included with the software suite is ideal for leveraging the 100,000 measurements per second in remote control and ATE environments. Multiple sensors can be connected to a single computer or test system for synchronized multi-channel measurements.
The RTP4000 series of Real-Time True Average power sensors are available in two models, 6 kHz to 6 GHz and 10 MHz to 6 GHz.
