8 DANL [dbm/hz] TOI [dbm] Performance: World No.1 Dynamic range Wide C/N measurement for Spurious, Mask and Occupied Bandwidth tests MS2830A-045(43GHz) TOI-DANL with preamplifier, without preselector bypass Wide Dynamic Range Frequency [GHz] Dynamic range is a key specification for spectrum analyzers. Low displayed average noise level (DANL) as well as thirdorder intermodulation distortion (TOI) are important too. Sometimes, distortion may occur in the mixer when inputting a carrier signal with low TOI and high level. In this case, the input level to the mixer can be reduced using an attenuator but, at the same time, the level of fine spurious also drops, making it impossible to find the noise floor. The MS2830xA has an excellent dynamic range, supporting accurate measurements for checking the spectrum, such as spurious tests, mask and occupied bandwidth with wide dynamic range. Slide
