ANRITSU has introduced the ML2488A, the industry's first multi-standard power meter for WLAN, Bluetooth and radar pulse power measurements.
The ML2488A accuratly measures power on all Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11 WLAN standards.
The product addresses issues of power control, peak power and timing in the design and implementation of wireless networks.
The ML2488A is also suitable for radio, navigation, aerospace, and other commercial wireless systems.
Anritsu's ML2488A offers high speed sampling while peak power detection for 802.11a, b and g, eliminates the need for manual correction factors found on the current generation of power meters.
The dual channel sensor input and display allows simultaneous monitoring of WLAN and Bluetooth devices. These elements are crutial to the co-existence of the multi-standards.
The ML2488A power meter covers 100kHz to 65GHz with a power measurement range of -70dBm to +20dBm, depending on the sensor range.
An 18GHz CDMA sensor incorporates a switchable 5/20 MHz filter and a chopper that enables the sensor to be used down to -60dBm.
The 40GHz radar and pulse sensor, primarily used for pulse measurements, has a dynamic range of +20dBm to -25dBm.
The ML2488A supports Anritsu's full line of sensors, which includes diode sensors, thermal sensors, and universal power sensors.
