ThinkRF D4000 platform extends the life of existing RF test equipment to meet
new wireless standards
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – October 28, 2019 –
the leader in software-defined spectrum analysis, today announced the new
ThinkRF D4000 RF Downconverter. The platform
is the industry's first 40 GHz downconverter, allowing engineers to quickly and
reliably analyze the new 5G wireless standard by extending the range of their existing
RF test equipment. To leverage the performance, latency, and capacity that 5G promises,
you need equipment which can properly analyze the higher frequencies and wider bandwidths
of these new signals. This portable, plug-and-play ThinkRF downconverter allows
mobile operators and military systems integrators (SIs) to easily upgrade existing
field, lab and manufacturing test equipment, reducing time to market and cost.
"The ability to measure new, high frequency 5G signals is becoming a necessity,"
said Dr. Jasvinder Obhi, VP, Product Management and Marketing, ThinkRF. "Unfortunately,
many existing spectrum analyzers and test equipment are stuck with low frequency
ranges of the past, meaning they're unable to measure the bands of the future. Our
high-performance, 40 GHz downconverter is a huge leap forward for the industry and
allows our customers to extend their existing equipment and analyze 5G signals in
a cost-effective way."
The ThinkRF D4000 RF Downconverter offers 24-40 GHz frequency, 500 MHz real-time
bandwidth, and 100 kHz tuning resolution, which is ideal for applications such as
interference hunting, electronic warfare, signals intelligence, spectrum monitoring,
drive test, transmission test, and customer premise equipment test. The platform
is built on patented and highly innovative software-defined radio (SDR) technologies
to extend the frequency range of existing RF signal analyzers from any vendor to
meet new requirements. With built-in preselect filtering and single IF output it
is quick and easy to use. The open platform also works seamlessly with current spectrum
analysis solutions through standard SCPI control over Ethernet, allowing the user
to control the unit through the spectrum analyzer or any PC.
The ThinkRF D4000 RF Downconverter is available to order in Q1 2020.
