The ZT8540 I/Q Digitizer from ZTEC Instruments (Albuquerque, NM) functions as a baseband Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) from DC to 300 MHz. This new baseband VSA provides the signal fidelity and real-time processing capabilities that enable a broad set of necessary RF and wireless test techniques, such as performing EVM (error vector magnitude), ACLR (adjacent channel leakage ratio) and IM3 (3rd-order intermodulation distortion) measurements or addressing complex MIMO applications. The ZT8450 provides the combination of high instantaneous bandwidth, high dynamic range, very high linearity, and very low phase noise necessary to test and characterize the latest and next generation of RFIC components. Available in 2 or 4 channels in PXI, PCI, VXI and LXI.
