The New RSA5000 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer provides Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) down to 1 Hz, a noise floor as low as -165 dBm, and a full-span sweep as fast as 1 msec. In addition, the analyzer features up to 40 MHz of real-time bandwidth, a minimum probability of intercept (POI) of 7.45 µsec, seven rich visualization modes and powerful triggering capability, providing a complete analysis package for engineers developing and integrating today’s wireless technologies.
Unlike most analyzers in this class, RIGOL specifies its Probability of Intercept performance. The RIGOL RSA5000 takes 146,484 FFTs/sec, providing a minimum 100% POI of 7.45 µsec. This class-leading performance allows users to confidently capture pulsing, hopping and fast transient signals as short as 7.45 µsec and display accurate power 100% of the time. The RSA5000 provides seven rich data views to allow engineers to visualize the most complex RF environments. Density Displays help to see time varying signals and resolve hidden and superimposed signals in the same frequency band. Spectogram Displays allow users to evaluate changes in signal behavior over time, especially useful in identifying hopping patterns and characterizing PLLs. Power-versus-Time Displays show the RF Power for the real time span over a user-defined time span helping measure the duration and timing of pulsing signals and characterizing signals with amplitude modulation like ASK.
The RIGOL RSA5000 utilizes a QuadCore processor and is built on a Linux operating system. Its flexible user interface allows customers a choice in how they interact with their instrument. It has a 10.1-in. capacitive touch display, supports a keyboard and mouse, or allows use of traditional softkey and knob control. HDMI out allows use of a large external display and USB/LAN support allow easy networking, programming, remote control and data sharing.
The RSA5000 starts at $7,999.
