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.
