Boonton Electronics has developed a line of Universal Serial Bus (USB) power meters, with the first two members being models 52012 and 52018. The new meters operate from 10 MHz to 12.4 GHz and 10 MHz to 18.5 GHz, respectively, and can make accurate power ...

Boonton Electronics has developed a line of Universal Serial Bus (USB) power meters, with the first two members being models 52012 and 52018. The new meters operate from 10 MHz to 12.4 GHz and 10 MHz to 18.5 GHz, respectively, and can make accurate power measurements from -50 to +20 dBm. The power meters rely on the processing power of a personal computer and offer a simple connection through the computer's USB port. Software is provided with each power meter to use the computer screen for control and display of measured results. For more information on these USB power meters, visit the Boonton Electronics website at: www.boonton.com/
