Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers Show Live RF
Tektronix, Inc. announced the addition of DPX waveform image processor technology to the mid-range RSA3000B Series Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers. This provides a live RF view of the spectrum using the RSA3300B and RSA3408B family models, enabling desirable RF signal discovery capability for a broad range of digital RF applications including RFID, radio communications, and spectrum management. DPX transforms volumes of real-time data and produces a live RF spectrum display that reveals previously unseen RF signals and signal anomalies. The RSA3300B series is available with either DC-3 GHz or DC- 8 GHz frequency coverage. With 15 MHz capture bandwidth and 70 dB Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), the RSA3300Bs are suitable for use in the design and debug of 3G mobile systems, Near-Field systems (such as RFID and Bluetooth), and narrow to medium bandwidth communications systems. The RSA3408B with DC-8GHz frequency coverage, 36 MHz capture bandwidth and 73 dB SFDR is tailored for higher bandwidth and dynamic range applications including 3G mobile components and system debug, WLAN and WiMax system design, demanding spectrum management applications and general purpose digital RF debug. Prices for the RSA3303B with DPX begin at $32,900.
