Rigol unveils real-time spectrum analysers

RIGOL Technologies has introduced the RSA3000E Real-time Spectrum Analyser which is capable of performing real-time measurements.

These economic instruments are based on the Rigol-developed Ultra-Real technology as a complete platform and are available with 1.5 GHz and 3.0 GHz bandwidth.

The RSA3000E series features a compact design, 10.1” touch-screen operation and a wide range of applications, and can also be used as a scalar network analyser thanks to the additional 1.5 or 3.0 GHz tracking generator.

The frequency range extends to 3.0 GHz with a Displayed Average Noise Level (DANL) ≤161 dBm and ≤102 dBc/Hz phase noise. The real-time analysis bandwidth is up to 1 MHz, the Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) is 1 Hz and as low in the class of instruments. USB, LAN and HDMI are available for communication.

The spectrum analysers have a modular structure and provide four measurement modes: RTSA – Real-time Spectrum Analyser up to a maximum bandwidth of 10 MHz GPSA – Spectrum Analyser with outstanding performance EMI – Pre-compliance tests according to CISPR specifications VSA – For ASK/FSK demodulation and bit error rate test.

Real-time spectrum analysers perform important functions in many test labs and are often associated with high costs. The RSA3000E has been designed to provide a cost-effective alternative for users with demanding analysis tasks and limited budgets at the same time.

This fully equipped instrument features digital Intermediate Frequency (IF) technology for accurate and high-resolution measurements from 9 kHz to 3.0 GHz. A lot of options and tools complete the flexibility of the new line, like the ASK/FSK demodulation software, the Advanced Measurement Kit AMK, the Ultra Spectrum PC software etc..

The series is available as four different models: RSA3015E and RSA3015E-TG as well as RAS3030E and RSA3030E-TG.
