  • PRESET loads or saves configurations.
    • LOAD STARTUP reloads the startup presets.
    • LOAD X loads the settings from slot x
    • STORE supports updating the stored presets
      • STORE AS STARTUP sets the current settings as the startup preset.
      • STORE X stores the current settings in slot X.
      • FACTORY DEFAULTS resets the startup preset to the factory defaults.
  • FREQ sets everything related to the frequency range to scan.
    • START sets the scanning to start/stop mode and sets the start frequency
    • STOP sets the scanning to start/stop mode and sets the stop frequency
    • CENTER sets the scanning to center/span mode and sets the center frequency
    • SPAN sets the scanning to center/span mode and sets the frequency span
    • ZERO SPAN sets the scanning to center/span mode, sets the span to 0Hz and sets the center frequency
    • RBW sets the resolution bandwidth. Keep in mind a low RBW may increase scanning time substantially.
    • SPUR REMOVAL activates the two spur removal mechanisms.
  • LEVEL sets everything related to the level of the signals being measured.
    • REF LEVEL sets the level in selected unit of the top of the display.
    • SCALE/DIV sets the amount of selected unit per division of the display.
    • ATTEN sets the amount of attenuation applied to the low input/output.
    • CALC selects various calculation options over time such as averaging or max hold.
    • UNIT selects the display unit. dBm, dBmV, dBuV, Volt or Watt
    • EXTERN AMP sets the level offset in dB caused by an external amplifier or attenuator.
    • TRIGGER selects the trigger mode
      • AUTO is the normal spectrum analyzer scanning mode, triggering is not active.
      • NORMAL will display a new scan as soon as a signal in the scan causes a trigger event.
      • SINGLE will wait for a signal to cause a trigger event and display the scan.
      • LEVEL activates a keypad for entering the trigger level.
      • UP EDGE generates a trigger event when the input level goes from below the set trigger level to above the set trigger level
      • DOWN EDGE generates a trigger event when the input level goes from above the set trigger level to below the set trigger level
  • DISPLAY controls various aspects of how the signals are being displayed.
    • PAUSE SWEEP pauses the scanning
    • STORE TRACE writes the current measurement to the blue trace. Click again to store again.
    • CLEAR STORED removes the stored trace
    • SUBTRACT STORED subtracts the stored trace from the current measurement.
    • NORMALIZE will store the current scan and subtract this stored scan from future measurements.
    • WATERFALL displays the power level over time in a waterfall map.
    • SWEEP SETTINGS menu contains various settings on how to sweep the selected frequency or time span.
      • NORMAL sets the default sweeping mode
      • PRECISE sets the precise scanning mode.
      • FAST sets the fast sweeping mode.
      • SWEEP TIME sets the target time for a complete sweep in seconds.
      • SWEEP POINTS allows setting the number of sweep points.
      • FAST SPEEDUP allows setting the acceleration factor for fast sweeping.
  • MARKER controls the markers on the display.
    • MODIFY MARKER allows selecting a marker and shows a submenu to modify the MARKER TYPE.
    • MARKER OPS allows setting the frequency display range based on the active marker
    • SEARCH MARKER allows positioning a non-tracking marker on signal maxima or minima.
  • MEASURE helps to quickly set the tinySA for certain measurements.
    • OFF switches of any measurement related setting and behavior and returns the tinySA to regular operation
    • HARMONIC switches to a marker configuration for measuring the level of harmonics of a signal
    • OIP3 switches to a marker configuration for measuring the Output IP3 level of a signal
    • PHASE NOISE switches to a marker configuration for measuring phase noise of a signal
  • CONFIG activates the configuration menu.
    • TOUCH CAL enables the calibration of the touch panel. The results are stored in NVM.
    • TOUCH TEST is used to verify touch calibration.
    • SELF TEST is used after a cable is used to connect the low and high input/output.
    • LEVEL CAL is used to calibrate the power measurement levels.
    • VERSION shows the SW version information.
    • EXPERT CONFIG activates the expert configuration menu
      • LO OUTPUT enables the output of the first LO though the high connector
      • ACTUAL POWER allows calibration of the dBm reading by entering the know level of the signal under marker 1.
      • IF FREQ allows entering the IF frequency used in low mode.
      • SCAN SPEED allows setting the speed of scanning.
      • REPEATS sets the number of repeat measurements at each frequency.
