Product Details

Sub-1GHz RF Spectrum Analyzer Tool

The MSP-SA430-SUB1GHZ Spectrum Analyzer can be used to monitor RF signals in the sub-1GHz frequency range during the development of wireless application equipment. A suitable PC is used to display frequency spectra from the analyser via a USB port. The analyser is based on a CC430 System-on-Chip (SoC) device featuring an MSP430 microcontroller core and a sub-1GHz radio based on the CC1101 RF transceiver.

Supported frequency ranges: 300 to 348MHz, 389 to 464MHz, 779 to 928MHz
Minimum frequency step: 397Hz
Maximum input level: -40dBm (range extendable with attenuators)
Minimum detectable level: -100dBm
Level Resolution: 0.5dB

Hardware Requirements
PC screen resolution: Minimum: 800 x 600 pixel, Recommended: 1024 x 768 pixel
Operating system: Windows XP 32 bit, Windows Vista 32/64 bit, Windows 7 32/64 bit
Hard drive space: 200MB
Connection: USB 2.0 socket

GUI Features
Open source QT-based Graphical User Interface (GUI)
Flexible GUI allows developers to set desired frequency range and amplitude to measure
Configurable to show continuous sweep readings or single snapshots
Up to 4 traces can be visualized on the GUI, which can be configured to show maximum, average or actual readings
Markers are available for easy measurement readings. These markers can be controlled manually using a jog wheel, or dynamic based on auto peak detection
The GUI view can be configured to show grids, customizable labels, inverted colours and other options
Screenshot capability is available to record readings as .pdf or .png file types
Traces can be exported as comma separated file
Configuration settings for the GUI can be saved and loaded for future measurements
