Tektronix enhances the RSA6000 Series Spectrum Analyzers
Bangalore: Tektronix a provider of test, management and monitoring instrumentation announced the enhancements made for its RSA6000 Series spectrum analyzers. The enhancements enable reduced test times with faster measurement speed and lower systems cost making them well suited for spectrum management, radar, electronic warfare and radio communications applications.

The increasing need for combining digital computing and traditional RF technologies has introduced new analysis challenges, including broadband transients and digital signal processing errors. The RSA6000 Series with its advanced time, amplitude and DPX Density trigger functions has been introduced as a solution to the complex signals which take time to troubleshoot.

"The enhanced RSA6000 Series essentially re-invents the swept spectrum analyzer," said Bob Hiebert, Director of Marketing, Spectrum Analyzer Product Line Tektronix. "Using the RSA6000 Series spectrum analyzer provides real-time advantages and solid swept performance, adding characterization capabilities while satisfying the need for a basic spectrum analyzer and a vector signal analyzer."

The improved broad based capability in the RSA6000 Series spectrum analyzer allows quick detection of signals and the DPX engine collects 100s of thousands of spectrums per second over a 110 MHz bandwidth. The DPX Density trigger captures signals, reducing time-to-insight by triggering on signals within signals. Other trigger enhancements include the new runt trigger and the availability to time-qualify any trigger. Additional RSA6000 Series enhancements include a 6X performance improvement to the 2nd generation of the DPX Live RF spectrum display. Using this feature, designers can test with confidence and detect very short duration transients. This application is particularly important for applications like software defined radio and radar.

The RSA6000 Series and its User-installable upgrade packages are immediately available worldwide and the entry-level pricing for RSA6000 begins at $77,900 U.S. MSRP.
