The Giga-tronics 8003 Precision Scalar Analyzer combines a 90 dB wide dynamic range with the accuracy and linearity of a power meter in a single instrument. The Gigatronics 8003 Precision Scalar Analyzer can make accurate, single sensor power measurements over a frequency range of 10 MHz to 40 GHz with a dynamic range of 70 to +20 dBm.
This wide dynamic range results from our unique use of switched linear gain stages, with a maximum gain of more than 100 dB, rather than the log amplifiers typically used in scaler analyzers. In addition to wide dynamic range, our approach also delivers extremely accurate low level measurements all the way down to 70 dBm.
Specifications describe the instruments warranted performance, and apply when using 80300A Series Power Sensors and 80500A Series Bridges.
