SignalVu-PC software brings benchtop and field features to the RSA306B
RSA306B operates with SignalVu-PC, a powerful program that is the basis of Tektronix performance signal analyzers. The software controls the spectrum analyzer acquisition and updates measurement displays continuously.
The base version ships free with the product; add options to configure the software for your application.
- Free base version has 17 signal analysis and real-time spectrum analysis measurements
- Paid add-on options for more than 15 advanced measurements including WLAN testing, P25 compliance testing, pulse analysis, modulation analysis and more
Panasonic instrument controller with SignalVu-PC
When combined with a Tektronix USB spectrum analyzer, the Panasonic FZ-G1, offered by Tektronix, transforms your view of the spectrum in the field. It provides the largest screen of any portable solution and weighs but a fraction of a traditional portable spectrum analyzer.
