Overview: Agilent N9322C Spectrum Analyzer
Agilent N9322C Spectrum AnalyserThe award-winning N9322C basic spectrum analyzer (BSA) defines a new generation of value-priced, general-purpose spectrum analyzers. It helps you quickly uncover key insights during RF design and troubleshooting through best-in-class RF performance. The N9322C won EDN’s “Hot 100” award in 2013.
Overview: TI Value Line Development Kit 868-915MHz (CC11XLDK-868-915)
TI Value Line Development Kit 868-915MHzThe CC11xLDK-868-915 development kit provides a complete hardware performance testing and software development platform for TI's Sub-1 GHz Value Line. The development kit comes with a pre-programmed packet error rate test. RF range and robustness can be tested with different RF settings, and powerconsumption can be measured easily. This kit supports 868MHz and 915MHz. An extra Evaluation Module Kit (CC11XLEMK-433) is needed to evaluate 433MHz.
