Hi Sig Hound,
We have not long received a couple of SM200A SA’s and are just getting to know the interface. Overall it’s really good and a big step up from our previous SA’s.
One feature that would be really useful would be to have stacked or tiled sweep plots. This would allow users to have the large fast frequency span enabled by the SM200A as well as being able to resolve some of the detail lost when compressing this span onto a finite monitor width.
Attached is an example of how it could work.
It would also be useful to be able to have a number of non-contiguous sweep windows. E.g for monitoring cellular comms one could have a low-band and high-band window.

That would be a pretty neat feature. If added, I’d like to also be able to show the same frequency if the scan rate is faster than the update rate. Like if you’re getting 5 sweeps per Spike update, being able to display all five stacked like this would be nice for picking up some detailed waveform characteristics and timing without having to write custom software.
But that likely make implementing this feature harder 🙂

Thanks for the suggestions. We are hoping the near future to adapt the improvements we have made to zero-span, analog/digital demod to sweep mode. The core of this giving us and the user the ability to scale/drag the plot data independent of the measurement config. I think this starts to open up the door for multiple plot arrangements you have suggested. No time frame on this.
