Edited by the Electronicstalk editorial team Jan 6, 2011

Tektronix is offering the RSA5000 Series Signal Analyzer for design and operations applications, including spectrum management, radar, electronic warfare, radio communications and EMI/EMC.

Featuring advanced time, amplitude and DPX trigger functions combined with swept DPX, the RSA5000 Series delivers discovery and capture of intermittent and rapidly changing signals and up to 85MHz bandwidth.

This bandwidth now covers the entire ISM band where common technologies are used, such as Bluetooth, Zigbee, RFID and Wireless LAN.

The DPX Live RF spectrum display of the RSA5000 Series signal analyser allows quick detection of previously unseen signal behaviour and improves test confidence by catching very short duration transients missed by conventional spectrum analysers.

The Swept DPX engine can collect up to 292,000 spectrum updates per second over its full bandwidth, up to 85MHz, and can sweep the DPX across the full input range of the RSA5000 Series, up to 6.2GHz.

DPX is capable of measuring spectral transients as brief as 5.8us.

To capture transients for analysis, the RSA5000 Series offers frequency mask, frequency edge, density, time-qualified and runt triggers.

It can also be used to isolate hard to find hardware and software anomalies with cross-domain triggering between multiple instruments.

It can capture a seamless time record of RF frequencies into deep memory for up to 7sec at 85MHz bandwidth.

For faster troubleshooting, the RSA5000 Series provides the ability to analyse captured data in any domain at any time with correlated markers.

Automatic pulse measurement and detection helps to simplify and save test time by supporting multiple measurements on the same set of captured data.

This reduces the cost of test by providing a single versatile instrument that replaces multiple test sets.

Along with wide bandwidth and DPX display, the RSA5000 Series offers spectrum and vector signal analysis with +17dBm TOI and -154dBm/Hz DANL at 1GHz, along with low-frequency performance with phase noise of -131dBc/Hz at 10kHz offset and -150dBm DANL at 10MHz carrier frequency.
