RF Explorer Software and Firmware updates available

At RF Explorer we keep working hard, we send a big virtual hug to all our customers and colleagues being impacted by the current situation.

We are happy to provide the following free upgrades to all our client base:

RF Explorer for Windows

The new version 2.02 includes new support for WiFi channels at 5GHz for RF Explorer models working up to 6GHz. In addition to that, high resolution modes for PLUS models have been enhanced with higher speed sweep. If you need to work at more than 112pts standard sweep, you can now go up to 4096pts in a single sweep; this is also useful for CSV export with high resolution to external applications.

As an example below images show the same UHF captured data at different resolutions 112, 512 and 2048pts. At high resolution the RBW is lower and therefore the noise floor is much more sensitive
