6GHZ SPECTRUM ANALYZER & VECTOR SIGNAL GENERATOR
10MHz – 6GHz | 245MHz I/Q streaming | 120MHz TX
Aaronia presents the SPECTRAN® V6 X: the world’s first and only 6GHz USB spectrum analyzer with dual USB True I/Q streaming of up to 245MHz (IQ rate) real-time bandwidth. It offers an extremely small POI (Probability Of Intercept) of up to 10ns and thus captures even extremely short signals. Furthermore, the SPECTRAN V6 X integrates a vector signal generator/tracking generator with a modulation bandwidth of up to 120MHz.
The SPECTRAN V6 X is Aaronia’s latest generation of high-performance real-time spectrum analyzers. With a sweep speed of over 1THz/s it sets new standards in the USB compact class. Any number of devices can be cascaded to achieve an even higher real-time bandwidth. Thus, by using only four SPECTRAN V6 X, a real-time bandwidth of 1GHz is already achieved!
The included software RTSA-Suite PRO is precisely tailored to the powerful and robust hardware and supports the use of multiple SPECTRAN V6 X. The stackable aluminum housing facilitates the parallel use of several units.
The SPECTRAN V6 X will initially be delivered in three versions: V6-RSA250X, V6-RSA500X and V6-RSA2000X – with a RTBW (Real-Time Bandwidth) of up to 245MHz. The analyzer is compatible to all common Aaronia antennas.

The high-quality black anodized housing is cut from a solid aluminium block. Thus the SPECTRAN V6 X achieves an optimal shielding and cooling for the internal components. At the same time, the housing construction ensures maximum robustness. The integrated fan is speed- and temperature-controlled and thus generates only minimal noise.
Depending on the version, the SPECTRAN V6 X has two or three USB 3.2 ports, one USB port serves as power supply; the other USB ports are required for data transfer. A 26,800 mAh power pack with the same form factor is available separately and allows operation without the strain on the laptop battery.
