I have a sa-44B which has a maximum 150ks/s when using the modulation analysis in spike. If I use the same modulation analysis in spike with a bb60c, what is the maximum data rate that can be analyzed in Spike. I have a bpsk 10 Ms/s signal centered at 1500 MHz which I would like to analyze in spike. Can the bb60 C do this?

Currently the maximum symbol rate the BB60C is capable of demodulating is 12.5MS/s. I would expect the BB60C would have no issue demodulating your BPSK signal.
If you have additional questions, let us know.

Can this be displayed in Spike? Will the symbol rate drop down menu go up to 12.5Ms/s? I am anticipating buying the Bb60c of it can display there’s higher data rates in Spike. I need an constallation and eye pattern display for my customer.
Thanks for all your help

Yes, this is all within Spike. The signal symbol rate can be set up to 12.5MS/s. All views and measurements that you have access to with the SA will be available with BB60C.
I attached an image showing this setup using a vector signal generator at my desk. Notice the symbol rate entry.
If you have additional questions let me know.

I feel totally confident now that the BB60C will work. I will order one today.
