Discover and interpret complex behaviors of your time-variant signals

The RSA3000B Series makes it easy for you to discover design issues that other signal analyzers miss. The revolutionary DPX Live RF spectrum display offers an intuitive live color view of signal transients changing over time in the frequency domain, giving you immediate confidence in the stability of your design or instantly displaying a fault when it occurs. This live display of transients is impossible with other signal analyzers. Once a problem is discovered with DPX, the Real Time Spectrum Analyzer (RTSA) can be set to trigger on the event in the frequency domain, capture a continuous time record of changing RF events and perform time-correlated analysis in all domains. You get the functionality of a high-performance vector signal analyzer, a spectrum analyzer, and the unique discover-trigger-capture-analyze capability of a Real Time Spectrum Analyzer – all in a single package.

Characteristics

Discover

The DPX™ spectrum processing engine brings live analysis of transient events to spectrum analyzers. Performing more than 48,000 frequency transforms per second, transients as brief as 31 μs are displayed in the frequency domain. This is orders of magnitude faster than conventional analysis techniques. Events are color coded by rate of occurrence onto a bitmapped display, providing unparalleled insight into transient signal behavior.

Trigger

The optional Frequency Mask Trigger (FMT) makes it easy to trigger on signals in the frequency domain and capture transient signals in bandwidths up to 36 MHz. The FMT is simply configured to monitor all changes in frequency occupancy within the capture bandwidth. The Power Trigger, working in any capture bandwidth, fires at the instant in time when the RF input signal crosses a user-set power threshold. An external trigger is available for synchronization to test system events.

Capture

Unlike many SA/VSA combination instruments, the RTSA is fully preselected at all times for spurious and image rejection in any combination of capture bandwidth and frequency. Capture of small signals in the presence of large signals is enabled with up to 73 dB Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR) and class-leading image rejection in all capture bandwidths. Capture once with seamless acquisitions and make multiple measurements without recapturing. Record lengths vary depending upon the selected capture bandwidth: up to 1.28 seconds at 36 MHz, 2.56 seconds at 15 MHz, 51.2 seconds at 1 MHz, or 1.42 hours at 10 kHz bandwidth with optional FMT / Deep Memory.

Thumbnail

Unlike a conventional VSA’s capability of quantifying the modulation quality only at the center frequency, the RSA3000B Series can demodulate a captured off-center hopped signal with view of the spectrogram (upper left), frequency versus amplitude (upper right), signal modulation quality (lower left) and Constellation (lower right).

Thumbnail

The RSA3000B Series also provides automatic measurement of the frequency settling time with the built-in Modulation Domain analyzer.

Thumbnail

A Frequency Mask Trigger (FMT) was set to monitor the frequency domain for any changes in the spectrum, and it triggered on transient interference. The spectrogram (lower display) shows the time relationship between the desired good signal and the interfering transient signal. The spectrum display shows what was happening at the precise moment the interfering signal was present in the band. FMT is an essential tool for capturing interfering and unauthorized signals in the presence of desired emitters.

 

 

Thumbnail

The Audio Spectrum and Spectrogram allow designers to understand the nature of distortion by viewing harmonics and nonharmonic components over time. Distortion parameters are calculated for each FFT frame in the Spectrogram display.

Thumbnail

The RSA3000B Series supports all of the latest RFID standards including ISO 18000-6, 18000-7, and ISO 15693. As a leading RFID test solution, this delivers the confidence you need from standards-based RF conformance tests to RF troubleshooting in the prototype lab tests.

Thumbnail

Powerful pulsed-signal analysis for characterization of Radar and other pulsed systems. Automatically measure pulse width, rep rate, pulse power, and other pulse parameters.

Analyze

The RTSA offers analysis capabilities that advance productivity for engineers working on components or in RF system design, integration and performance verification, or operations engineers working in network or spectrum management. Time-correlated data analysis with automatic domain correlation and linked markers accelerates troubleshooting and analysis by pinpointing the root cause of problems in multiple domains.
