Signal Hound SM200A

Spectrum Analyzer, 20GHz, High Performance, Realtime 
BRL Test is your authorized USA Signal Hound Distributor. Payment terms available.

The Signal Hound SM200A is a high-performance spectrum analyzer and monitoring receiver. Tuning from 100 kHz to 20GHz,
the analyzer has 160MHz of instantaneous bandwidth, 110dB of dynamic range, 1THz/sec sweep speed at 30kHz
RBW (using Nuttall windowing), and phase noise performance that is low enough to contribute less than 0.1%
error to EVM measurements and rival even the most expensive spectrum analyzers on the market.
Signal processing is distributed between a very powerful Altera FPGA and an external PC having an Intel Core
i5 or i7 processor. The Signal Hound SM200A can be readily interfaced, using its local API, to an automated
monitoring system or to automated test equipment. The SM200A API provides customers the access needed to
insert their own DSP algorithms into a calibrated stream of I/Q data
FREQUENCY
? Range: 100 kHz to 20.0 GHz
? Calibrated Streaming I/Q: 5  kHz to 40  MHz of choose I/Q
bandwidth.
? Sparse Spectrum I/Q Streaming: Streaming 160 MHz of
Calibrated I/Q from sparsely occupied spectrum, using a low
loss compression algorithm, is scheduled for release as a free
firmware/software upgrade within 6 months of initial SM200A
release.
? Resolution Bandwidths (RBW): 0.1 Hz (≤200 kHz span) to
 10 MHz (any span)
? Timebase Accuracy: GPS disciplined OCXO with a
 holdover of ±1.5 x 10-7 per day from -40°C to 65°C

using the image reject algorithm
Note: Signal ID can be activated and deactivated, by toggling
the F3 key on keyboard, to allow low level mixer spurs to be
differentiated from RF Input signals.

FPGA
Altera Arria-10, p/n 10AX027, has 1660 multipliers, provides
choose decimation, 160 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth
from FFT processing W/ resources to spare for future growth

149°F (-40°C to +65°C)
SIZE AND WEIGHT
? 7.53 lbs. (3.42 kg) including heat sink
? 5.80 lbs. (2.63 kg) without heat sink
? 10.2? x 7.2? x 2.05? (259mm x 183mm x 52mm) w/ heat sink
? 10.2? x 7.2? x 1.46? (259mm x 183mm x 37mm) w/o heat sink
POWER CONSUMPTION
? 4 watts (2% duty cycle) to 29 watts (100% duty cycle) from an
external supply of 9V to 16V for the SM200A or the included
AC wall adapter can be used.
CONNECTIVITY
? Local external computer with Microsoft Windows and a USB
 3.0 port is required to operate the SM200A (minimum of
 Intel 4th Gen i5 processor or equivalent).
GPIO PORT
? Used for antenna switching and in/out triggering.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Intel i7, 3rd generation or later with a quad core processor, one USB 3.0 port, and one adjacent USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port Note: RF recording using
streaming I/Q bandwidths > 8MHz requires the computer's mass storage drive to have at least 250MB/sec of sustained write speed such as an SSD,
RAID-0, or RAID-5.
