IQFlow functions are now part of Tektronix RSA7100A wideband signal analysis instrumentation. This enhancement is said to deliver the speed and flexibility needed to perform real-time digital signal processing (DSP) and support hardware in the loop (HWIL or HIL) test for radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems.
The RSA7100A’s real-time analysis for live monitoring of recording events allows systems engineers to ensure they are getting the data they need from their time-consuming test scenarios. With new streaming APIs and interfaces, including support for 40 GbE and LVDS, the analyzer offers the performance and ready-to-go convenience that system engineers need to move forward with their next-generation designs.
“The RSA7100A with IQFlow leads the market as a comprehensive solution that can quickly and easily be dropped into a wide range of test scenarios,” said Jon Baldwin, vice president and general manager, Wideband Solutions Business Unit at Tektronix. “IQFlow gives our customers the flexibility to process their own DSP algorithms in real time using our front-end system. They are not limited to working only with the instrument vendors’ analysis results.”
The RSA7100A is said to be the widest-bandwidth streaming real-time spectrum analysis on the market. The DPX spectrum/spectrogram display provides 100% probability of intercept of up to 419 nsec. signals in an 800-MHz span. The analyzer’s 16 kHz to 26.5 GHz frequency range covers a broad range of analysis needs, including radar and spectrum management applications.
System pricing starts at $135,000 US MSRP.
