Measurements beyond the Real Time Bandwidth using different Measurement View Blocks


Using different Measurement View Blocks, such as Sweep Zoom and Wrapped Spectrum, it is possible to visualize a wider 'span' than the Real Time Bandwidth capability of the Spectran (up to full span).

Could you give more detail on the Spectran's behavior when doing so?   Especially if Real Time Analysis is still used or if at some point (or using a different measurement block) the Spectran shifts to a Sweep measurement?  And if it is Real Time and several 'spans' are stitched together internally, what is the method for that, and is there an overlap between the different parts?

Thank you!

Yes the sweep blocks stitches IQ real-time spans together.

The "overlap" is adjustable but you should better not modify those parameters.
