Description: Spectrum Analyzer IF Section
                                    The HP Model 8552B Spectrum Analyzer IF Section was designed
to be used in conjunction with an RF Section and a Display

The complete analyzer is a highly sensitive superheterodyne
receiver with spectrum scanning capabilities determined by
the RF Section. Output video from the receiver circuits is
applied to the CRT in the display section; thus, a signal or
group of signals can be analyzed in the frequencydomain.
Input signals are plotted on the CRT as a function of
amplitude verstis frequency. The amplitude (Y-axis) of the
CRT is calibrated in absolute units of power (dBm) or
voltage (juV/mV); accordingly, absolute and relative
measurements of both amplitude and frequency can be made.

The instrument controls are arranged for easy operation. For
wide spectrum analysis, the operator can use the preset scan
of the RF Section used, or for a more detailed study, the
spectrum width can be progressively narrowed. The frequency
scan can be stopped to allow use of the instrument as a
fixed frequency receiver. The RF Section’s widest bandwidth
is automatically selected for preset scan operation; for
variable scan and fixed frequency operation, narrower
band-widths can be selected by the operator.
