Signal Hound’s SM200B

Signal Hound’s leading high-performance spectrum analyzer and monitoring receiver, the SM200B, is a robust tool providing unrivaled value in real-time RF spectrum analyzation.

Boasting a tuning range of 100 kHz to 20 GHz and 160 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth (IBW) calibrated I/Q capture (available through block transfer of a 2-second I/Q buffer over USB 3.0 to the PC) this unit features an impressive array of analysis capabilities and features. The 2-seconds of segmented I/Q capture memory, with advanced triggering options such as frequency mask triggering (FMT) plus user-specified pre- and post-trigger, satisfies the ever-increasing analysis bandwidth demands of the wireless industry. The SM200B delivers even more performance with 110 dB dynamic range, 1 THz/s sweep speed, and phase noise performance that is low enough to contribute less than 0.1% error to EVM measurements.

From complex modulated communications signals to interference events, to pulsed tactical signals, the SM200B and Signal Hound’s Spike™ software combine to provide an all-in-one desktop or mobile analyzation solution. Paired with a PC, this analyzer and Spike allow for accurate and competent real-time measurements. With additional features like phase noise measurements, real-time analysis capabilities, spectrum emission masks, and more, it is clear to see why so many industry professionals rely on this spectrum analyzation workhorse. At a price point that fits most budgets ($12,990), the SM200B is the core of a comprehensive, high-performance analysis and monitoring system.

Our in-house team of engineers develops and continues to refine and update the Spike software solution we pair with our powerful hardware. This free resource is compatible with Signal Hound’s entire line of spectrum analyzers and tracking generators. With options like real-time spectrum analysis, WLAN modulation analysis, and an interference hunting mode, it is a substantial package of useful tools. Not only does Spike deliver a software solution that provides full device control and a configurable spectrum display and user interface, but it is also fully customizable via the included API. This allows for tailored usage to fit any of your needs. Our talented team is committed to ongoing development and support of Spike software and regularly releases new features via updates.

Integrated uses for the SM200B in conjunction with Spike software are extensive. When data is critical, the real-time functions of our hardware and software can deliver a comprehensive signal image, accurately, in a very short time. Real-world uses run the gamut. Engineering, IoT projects, field tech, security, education, research and military; these are just some of the uses for our effective and affordable RF test and measurement products. The two-part focus of our products, spectrum analysis and vector signal generation, cover a vast array of RF testing needs in the industry. The years of research and development we have put in to optimizing our products ensures we are able to service numerous facets of customer-specific requirements. It isn’t an exaggeration to say our products offer something to anyone working with RF on a daily basis.
