Next Gen Peak Power Analyzer Is Compact And Light

Compact and lightweight, Boonton’s 4500C is its next generation peak power analyzer that can capture, display, analyze, and characterize both microwave and RF power in both the time and statistical domains Applications include radar, electronic warfare, education and research, consumer electronics, and wireless communications including emerging standards such as LTE-A and 5G.


Featuring proprietary technology, such as Real-Time Power Processing, and eliminating the likelihood of missing pulses or intermittent events, the 4500C delivers a wide variety of measurement functionality. Examples include best-in-class measurement range from +20 dBm to -60 dBm, RF channel risetime of less than 5 ns, time resolution of 100 ps, minimum pulse width of 5 ns, maximum pulse repetition frequency of 50 MHz, and maximum viewing range of 10 hours, as well as ultrafast trace acquisition and refresh rates, unique trigger functionality with automatic peak-to-peak, delay-by-time and delay-by-events triggering, and powerful statistical analysis.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The 4500C is the next generation of Peak Power Analyzers in the 4500 series product line. It is a drop-in, code-compatible replacement to the model 4500B with the same front panel controls and graphical user interface, eliminating the need to change any test procedures designed around the 4500B. More details are available from the 4500C datasheet.
