Research and Development using rf spectrum analyzers

ThinkRF has developed high performance and cost-effective Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers for research and development applications. Easily move from the lab to the manufacturing floor to the field with one box solutions that work throughout the entire development cycle of new products and technologies.

10x more performance

Capture, record and analyze up to 27 GHz frequency range and up to 100 MHz wideband signals in real-time.

One box solution

Seamlessly shift from the lab to the manufacturing floor to the field to get consistent results at every stage of the development process.

10x more cost-effective

Cost-effectively perform RF data acquisition for applications such as channel sounding.

Improve your research and development capabilities across the entire product lifecycle

Conduct in depth analysis of new technologies and products with research solutions from ThinkRF. Easily develop your own analysis with the PyRF programming environment, or integrate directly with numerous third party applications such as MATLAB® and LabVIEW.®

  • Capture, record and analyze modern waveforms up to 100 MHz wideband signals and 9 kHz – 27 GHz frequency range in real-time
  • Store and forward continuous real-time signal captures to conduct in-depth post-analysis of various tests
  • Save rack space and lower the initial cost of purchasing research equipment
  • Get more consistent results across the entire development cycle

The R5500 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer provides the versatile, cost-effective and compact research solution required to test and analyze modern waveforms.

A rich suite of APIs and programming environments allow researchers to use whatever application they need, or develop their own custom solution that best meets their business requirements.
