Dear all, Some weeks ago I sent a enquiry to the list about PC-cards for spectrum analysis. This is a Thanks message to all that replied. Some of your suggestions were very useful indeed. For this reason, I thought someone else might be interested in those suggestions; so, below is a summary. -- Enrique (mm(at) ============================== SUMMARY ============================== 1. ---- > Enrique, > ... you may be interested in: > > > > > > ---- Phil Brown <cpbrown(at)> 2.---- > Have you looked into the Tucker-Davis Technologies System II (Gainesville > FL, Phone +1 352 375 1623 FAX: +1 352 375 4523).

A box of AD/DA and microphone preamplifiers is needed outside the PC, however. This system has all the advantages of the old analyzers (reliabilty and accuracy), and the main advantage is that your measurement data are much easier to access. > The snag is that the Pulse system is quite expensive. > > ---- Soren Laugesen <SLU(at)> 8.---- > ...there is now a PC-based professional spectrum analyzer from B&K, namely the PULSE system, which is a Windows NT application based on one or more plug-in DSP boards and an external unit with measuring amplifiers and D/A converters. This gives you the full convenience of Windows along with many import/export features as well as full calibration and reporting support. > > Please take a look at for more information. > > ---- Lars Bramslow <LBRAMSLOW(at)BK.DK> =========================== END of SUMMARY ==========================
