We’re at AOC 2021 this week

This week we’re attending the 58th Annual Association of Old Crows International Symposium and Convention in Washington D.C. This exhibition is the premiere event showcasing companies and products in the defense, intelligence, and surveillance industry. It is a great opportunity for us to see many of our colleagues and to present new products.  Getting back

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

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.   Our Spike software offers the ability

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

Signal Hound announces a new Noise Figure analysis mode 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

Rising to the occasion as best we can

These are tricky times Between the looming threat of the Novel Coronavirus, concern for our families, friends, communities, and ourselves, anxiety about work and the overarching economy – life feels really tricky right now. There have been several days in the last couple of weeks where I’ve personally cycled through a range of mental states.

Today, the SA44B spectrum analyzer is 10 years old

Where does the time go? More than a decade has passed since Justin placed a napkin drawing comprised of affordable components in front of Bruce and pitched it as a potential USB-powered spectrum analyzer, void of a screen and built-in PC. The potential analyzer was designed to take advantage of modern USB connectivity and utilize
