Tektronix RSA7100B Spectrum Analyzer

Key features

  1. 16 kHz to 14/26.5 GHz frequency range
  2. High performance spectrum analysis for advanced design verification with -134 dBc/Hz phase noise at 1 GHz, 10 kHz offset and typical amplitude accuracy of 0.5 dB at 10 GHz
  3. Standard 320 MHz real time bandwidth; standard internal preamplifier to 3.6 GHz
  4. Industry’s best real time performance: 232 nsec for 100% Probability of Intercept at full signal level
  5. Available 800 MHz acquisition bandwidth at frequencies > 3.6 GHz for advanced Radar, communications and spectrum management requirements
  6. Industry-leading time-qualified triggers which enable capture of events at desired pulse widths > 10 μs, ideal for capturing dynamic test environments
  7. IQFlowTM provides continuous streaming of IQ data at full 800 MHz bandwidth from the device to one or more clients, including LVDS, 40 GbE, and a software API that provides the speed and flexibility needed to perform real-time Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms
  8. Streaming capture to internal RAID of over 2 hours at full 800 MHz bandwidth enables environment recording and analysis of long event sequences
  9. DataVu-PC software for analysis of recorded events of any length includes ability to mark events of interest, export waveforms to other formats and perform pulse analysis with export of Pulse Descriptor Word (PDW) information
  10. Simultaneous streaming and real time analysis for live monitoring of recording events ensures you are getting the data you need
  11. Efficient fast-frame capture with dead time eliminated optimizes memory and analysis so you can analyze longer test sequences
  12. Standard measurements including channel power, ACLR, CCDF, OBW/EBW, spurious search and amplitude/frequency/phase versus time provide a complete toolset for development work
  13. Internal GPS receiver, 1PPS and IRIG-B AM/DC are available for precise time stamping of events
  14. Standard real time DPX(R) spectrogram technology lets you see short-duration signals on a color-coded display. See the transients and interference your conventional spectrum analyzer is not showing you.
  15. SignalVu-PC vector signal analysis software provides a wide variety of analysis packages, including modulation, pulse, WLAN, phase noise, and frequency/phase settling measurements.

The RSA7100B wideband signal analyzer offers real time spectrum analysis up to 800 MHz bandwidth, simultaneous streaming to multiple interfaces for record (up to 2 hours) and playback of seamless data at full bandwidth.

The RSA7100B gives you the power to imagine new solutions

The RSA7100B is a high performance spectrum analyzer focused on wideband analysis and signal recording. By separating the RF acquisitions from the compute engine, a graphics processor can be used in place of previously-required FPGA designs for real time processing.

You can harness the power of this CPU/GPU combination in your own simulations and designs, using the instrument as a powerful workstation.

The RSA7100B is designed for engineers working on the latest wideband designs in communications, radar and electronic warfare and for technicians who need to capture and analyze long-event sequences for wideband systems at the test range.

Analysis of signals is enabled with two software packages. SignalVu-PC for real time, spectrum and vector signal analysis, and DataVu-PC for analysis of the very large file sets produced when recording wideband signals.

SignalVu-PC software offers rich analysis capability

The RSA7100B operates with SignalVu-PC, a powerful program used as the basis of Tek’s spectrum analyzers. SignalVu-PC offers a deep analysis capability including real time spectrum analysis and a wide variety of application packages. A programmatic interface to SignalVu-PC is provided, offering all measurements and settings to external programs.

DataVu-PC for analysis of long recordings

SignalVu-PC can open files up to 16 GB in size. DataVu-PC is the solution for analysis of large files. With DataVu-PC you can view color-graded spectrums, spectrograms and amplitude vs. time of files of unlimited length. Search-and-mark testing is available to quickly identify

signals of interest. Searches can be amplitude qualified, and a marker is placed on up to 2,000,000 events found. Replay of user-selected sections is offered for review of signals of interest, and selected areas can be exported to SignalVu-PC for further analysis. Pulse analysis is available within DataVu-PC. See the separate DataVu-PC data sheet for complete details and ordering information.
