Aeroflex announced the release of version 1.5 of its software for the 3900 series digital radio test set. This expands the range of tests offered by this platform using firmware enhancements and capabilities. Each discrete instrument within the 3900 series offers features, performance and capabilities that were previously found only in dedicated stand-alone instruments.
The initial release of the 3900 provided a replacement for the company's model 2968 radio test set, a TETRA mobile, and base-station tester. With this latest release, the 3900 series replaces the 2965 full-featured radio test set.
The 3900 series supports the Aeroflex IQCreator software and adds the ability to generate single or multiple carriers with user-defined digital or analog modulation types unique to each carrier. Additional audio test capabilities include a new FFT audio analyzer and a tunable notch frequency for distortion and SINAD measurements. These capabilities provide analysis of audio signals from 0 Hz to 24 kHz.
Software version 1.5 for the Aeroflex 3900 series radio test platform is available for download at www.aeroflex.com/products/software.cfm?ProductName=3900%20Series
The Aeroflex 3900 series digital radio test set is available in two base models, the 3901, which offers a 1-GHz frequency range and the 3902, which features operation up to 2.7 GHz. The 3901 is priced at $27,995 for a basic configuration that includes full analog duplex capabilities, spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, meters, and GPIB remote command features.
