RF Analyzers Supported by Rational Waves Software
Device Compatibility Tester
We do not sell RF spectrum analyzers -- only the Rational Waves software. The low-cost RF spectrum analyzers supported by Rational Waves are among the most popular devices and are suitable for use in a broad array of RF-related applications.
If you already own one of these RF spectrum analyzers and are unsure whether it will work with Rational Waves, then we strongly advise that you check out the Rational Waves Device Compatibility Tester. If your RF analyzer works with the Device Compatibility Tester program then it will also work with Rational Waves.
RF Spectrum Analyzers
If you do not yet own an RF spectrum analyzer or are considering purchasing a new one, then consider the list below. These are all fine instruments and will perform well for most RF applications. The difference in prices reflect supported frequency range, frequency bandwidth and refresh rate. When choosing an RF spectrum analyzer, its supported frequency range is most important and must match with your RF application -- whereas frequency bandwidth and refresh rate are less important. If you require a laboratory grade analyzer, then it's best to go with one of the Signal Hound models.
Each RF spectrum analyzer supports a specific frequency range. Depending on your RF application, a particular RF spectrum analyzer may be more suitable than another -- the image below can serve as a guide. The RF Explorer and Signal Hound brands include a variety of different models -- where each model differs in terms of frequency coverage and cost.
