R&S UPP 800 Audio Analyzer
High measurement speed, parallel signal processing in multichannel applications, and high reliability in continuous operation are vital requirements to be met by audio analyzers for use in production. If, on top of that, a cost-efficient instrument for system use is what you need, the solution is the R&S®UPP audio analyzer.
The R&S®UPV audio analyzer – the high-end instrument from Rohde & Schwarz – has held a solid position in all audio T&M applications for years. Measurement accuracy and dynamic range at the limits of what is possible, combined with unique measurement capabilities, make the R&S®UPV ideal primarily for research, development and quality assurance tasks.
Many audio applications do not place such high requirements on dynamic range and versatility. The emphasis in production is often on high throughput, and the cost of production test assemblies also plays a major role. When testing consumer audio equipment, multichannel devices of surround-sound systems must also be measured using state-of-the-art interfaces such as HDMI. This is where the R&S®UPP audio analyzer family comes into its own. Depending on the model, two, four or eight channels are processed in parallel; and by cascading multiple instruments, users can simultaneously trigger up to 48 measurement channels, which cuts down on measurement time.
The compact cost-efficient R&S®UPP audio analyzer is designed for system applications. It features low height, and comes without front-panel control elements or integrated display. The instrument can be remote-controlled via LAN, USB or IEC/IEEE bus. In combination with an external monitor, mouse and keyboard, it becomes a manually operable measuring instrument for a lab bench. It has an integrated control PC, and the required software is already installed. Users can start taking measurements right away.
Featuring the same operating philosophy and remote control, the R&S®UPV and R&S®UPP audio analyzers are a strong team: They provide the optimal solution for both R & D and production, respectively, and harmonize well together, for example when instrument settings or measurement routines have to be exchanged.

Product data applies under the following conditions:
- Three hours storage at ambient temperature followed by 30 minutes warm-up operation
- Specified environmental conditions met
- Recommended calibration interval adhered to
- All internal automatic adjustments performed, if applicable
Specifications with limits:
Represent warranted product performance by means of a range of values for the specified parameter. These specifications are
marked with limiting symbols such as <, ≤, >, ≥, ±, or descriptions such as maximum, limit of, minimum. Compliance is ensured by
testing or is derived from the design. Test limits are narrowed by guard bands to take into account measurement uncertainties, drift
and aging, if applicable.
Specifications without limits:
Represent warranted product performance for the specified parameter. These specifications are not specially marked and represent
values with no or negligible deviations from the given value (e.g. dimensions or resolution of a setting parameter). Compliance is
ensured by design.
Typical data (typ.):
Characterizes product performance by means of representative information for the given parameter. When marked with <, > or as a
range, it represents the performance met by approximately 80 % of the instruments at production time. Otherwise, it represents the
Nominal values (nom.):
Characterize product performance by means of a representative value for the given parameter (e.g. nominal impedance). In contrast to
typical data, a statistical evaluation does not take place and the parameter is not tested during production.
Measured values (meas.):
Characterize expected product performance by means of measurement results gained from individual samples.
Represent limits of measurement uncertainty for a given measurand. Uncertainty is defined with a coverage factor of 2 and has been
calculated in line with the rules of the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM), taking into account
environmental conditions, aging, wear and tear.
