SPECTRAN V6 X

Aaronia presents the SPECTRAN® V6 X: the world’s first and only 8 GHz USB spectrum analyzer with dual USB true I/Q streaming of up to 245 MHz (via 2xUSB) instanta­neous bandwidth (complex I/Q). It offers an extremely small POI (Probability Of Intercept) of up to 10 ns and thus captures even extremely short signals. Furthermore, the SPECTRAN® V6 X integrates a vector signal generator/tracking generator with a modulation bandwidth of up to 245 MHz.

The SPECTRAN® V6 X is Aaronia’s latest generation of high-performance real-time spectrum analyzers. With a sweep speed of over 1 THz/s it sets new standards in the USB compact class. Any number of devices can be cascaded to achieve an even higher real-time bandwidth. Thus, by using only four SPECTRAN® V6 X, a real-time bandwidth of 1 GHz is already achieved!

The included software RTSA-Suite PRO is precisely tailored to the powerful and robust hardware and supports the use of multiple SPECTRAN® V6 X. The stackable aluminum housing facilitates the parallel use of several units.

The SPECTRAN® V6 X will initially be delivered in three versions: V6-RSA250X, V6-RSA500X and V6-RSA2000X – with a max. instanta­neous bandwidth (complex I/Q) of up to 245 MHz (via 2 x USB). The analyzer is compatible to all common Aaronia antennas.

Housings
The high-quality black anodized housing is cut from a solid aluminium block. Thus the SPECTRAN® V6 X achieves an optimal shielding and cooling for the internal components. At the same time, the housing construction ensures maximum robustness. The integrated fan is speed- and temperature-controlled and thus generates only minimal noise.

USB
Depending on the version, the SPECTRAN® V6 X has one or two USB 3.0 ports for data transfer. A further USB port can optionally be used as power supply. A 26,800 mAh power pack with the same form factor is available separately and allows operation without the strain on the laptop battery.
