Pittsford, NY, has
introduced WiPry-Combo, a dynamic
power meter and
accessory for the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone. It turns an iOS
device into an ultra-portable spectrum analyzer and dynamic
power meter. WiPry-Combo brings RF power measurements to a
graphical interface to show RF waveforms like an oscilloscope.
Instead of showing voltage, RF amplitude is displayed on an iOS
portable device. Data is collected at up to 12 MSa/s, allowing
analysis and verification of the smallest protocol level on/off
times. WiPry-Combo offers datalogging in csv format, while
screenshot results can be instantly e-mailed via the iOS host
phone. In Spectrum Analyzer mode, it identifies interference or
open channels in the 2.4-GHz ISM band, or identifies unauthorized
WiFi access points. In Dynamic Power Meter mode, the
device becomes a 100-MHz to 2.7-GHz RF power meter accessory
that graphically displays RF power levels.
