What is RF Spectrum Analyzer ?

The analyzer used for frequency domain measurements of spectrum such as harmonics, spurious, sidebands etc. is known as spectrum analyzer. The RF spectrum analyzer operates at radio frequencies.

The figure depicts block diagram mentioning internal components of a spectrum analyzer. It converts time domain signals to frequency domain for further analysis and display purpose. It is mainly used for power level measurements at various frequencies. Spectrum analyzer helps in discovering unwanted signals and also helps in phase noise measurements.
