CRFS unveils compact spectrum analyser

Posted 15 December 2016 · Add Comment

CRFS has released its next generation 8 GHz RFeye Desktop, the first commercially available, high performance spectrum analyser which is truly portable.



The RFeye Desktop looks nothing like a traditional piece of test & measurement equipment – it fits in the palm of your hand and can be carried around in your laptop bag..  It is presented in a compact, lightweight, ergonomic package just like in a consumer electronics product. Inside is the highest performance, small form factor wideband radio receiver on the market.  

The RFeye Desktop frees you from the large, heavy and power-consuming integrated spectrum analyzers with their often clunky built-in screens and antiquated operating systems. It can simply be plugged into a USB 3.0 enabled laptop; the software web apps can then be run within a web browser on your Windows or Linux based device.

In addition, a growing list of mission-specific applications are available as CRFS RFeye web apps. Over time this library will grow to include many of the cutting edge RFeye spectrum monitoring tools that CRFS has developed for its other spectrum monitoring solutions.  Users can create and share their own applications as part of a wider RFeye ecosystem.

It has a 9 kHz – 8 GHz frequency range, up to 100 MHz instantaneous bandwidth, sweep speed of over 400 GHz/s, industry-leading phase noise and high spurious-free dynamic range. The small size and weight of the RFeye Desktop has been achieved without any performance compromises.

“CRFS is known for making the best small form factor receivers in the world,” said Alistair Massarella, CEO. “The RFeye Desktop is an exciting new concept in portable spectrum analysis for the Apple age. Platform independent and with simple-to-use web applications, you get amazing performance in a convenient small package. It’s ideal for a wide range of test and measurement tasks requiring absolute precision. But it will also do the more complex tasks of detecting and analysing low probability of intercept and frequency hopping signals typical of advanced digital communications. It really is a versatile tool.”
