Virtual IMS 2021

Hey everyone, we’re at IMS…virtually! It’s been a little bit since we’ve been able to rub shoulders with our industry friends, and we are looking forward to being able to do that in person again, soon. In the meantime, we are part of a group of over 100 exhibitors at the IMS 2021 Virtual Show.

Noise Figure Measurement Video and Feature Overview Download

We recently announced a new noise figure analysis mode in our Spike RF analysis software. This new analysis mode has already been a big hit with many of our users, but for those that aren’t quite sure why making noise figure measurements is a big deal (or how to perform the measurement), we created a

Spike update to version 3.5.14 brings new marker types, SCPI commands, and UI enhancements

We recently updated our Spike spectrum analyzer software to version 3.5.14. Sometimes our software updates simply fix bugs, and sometimes new features are added – 3.5.14 just happens to be one that adds a couple neat new features! On your mark[er], get set… The change log states that we “added new marker functionality to Sweep,

New video – Channel Power Measurements with Spike software

The ability to make channel power measurements and adjacent channel power (ACP) measurements are a crucial requirement of any qualified RF test bench. These measurements display the signal energy leaked into adjacent communications channels and the range of frequencies that contain the modulated communication signal power – all very important when working with communication standards such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular technologies.   Spike, our spectrum analyzer

News Release: Signal Hound’s Spike Software Integrates Noise Figure Measurement Feature

Signal Hound announces a new analysis mode for making noise figure measurements in its exclusive Spike spectrum analyzer software. Noise Figure analysis is one of the most useful metrics for RF test engineers, characterizing the noise contributions of an electrical system, as well as the individual electrical components within the system.

Fall updates to Spike and our VSG60 software

Fall brings change, no matter where you are. Depending on which half of the globe you live on things are either cooling down or warming up, and the weather will soon have you inside your lab in order to keep warm, or, for those down South – to stay cool. And when inside, what better

New Linux software, new Bluetooth LE waveform generation

Hopefully this update finds you doing alright during this interesting time in history. The Signal Hound team (and families) are all well and good, adjusting to the current state of normal as best we can. A large part of our staff continues to work remotely, including our software developers who have just released some new—and
