High-performance Spectrum and Vector Signal Analysis, and a Lot More

The Tektronix RSA6120A 20 GHz Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer replaces conventional high-performance signal analyzers, offering the measurement confidence and functionality you demand for everyday tasks. A typical 20 dBm TOI and –151 dBm/Hz DANL at 2 GHz gives you the dynamic range you expect for challenging spectrum analysis measurements. All analysis is fully preselected and image free. The RSA6000 Series uses broadband preselection filters that are always in the signal path. You never have to compromise between dynamic range and analysis bandwidth by ‘switching out the preselector’.

A complete toolset of power and signal statistics measurements is standard, including Channel Power, ACLR, CCDF, Occupied Bandwidth, AM/FM/PM, and Spurious measurements. Available Phase Noise and General Purpose Modulation Analysis measurements round out the expected set of high-performance analysis tools.

But, just being a high-performance signal analyzer is not sufficient to meet the demands of today’s hopping, transient signals.

The Tektronix RSA6120A 20 GHz Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer will help you to easily discover design issues that other signal analyzers may miss. The revolutionary DPX® spectrum display offers an intuitive live color view of signal transients changing over time in the frequency domain, giving you immediate confidence in the stability of your design, or instantly displaying a fault when it occurs. This live display of transients is impossible with other signal analyzers. Once a problem is discovered with DPX®, the Tektronix RSA6120A 20 GHz Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer can be set to trigger on the event, capture a contiguous time record of changing RF events, and perform time-correlated analysis in all domains. You get the functionality of a high-performance spectrum analyzer, wideband vector signal analyzer, and the unique trigger-capture-analyze capability of a real-time spectrum analyzer – all in a single package.

The patented DPX spectrum processing engine brings live analysis of transient events to spectrum analyzers. Performing up to 292,968 frequency transforms per second, transients of a minimum event duration of 3.7 μs in length are displayed in the frequency domain. This is orders of magnitude faster than swept analysis techniques. Events can be color coded by rate of occurrence onto a bitmapped display, providing unparalleled insight into transient signal behavior. The DPX spectrum processor can be swept over the entire frequency range of the instrument, enabling broadband transient capture previously unavailable in any spectrum analyzer. In applications that require only spectral information, Opt. 200 provides gap-free spectral recording, replay, and analysis of up to 60,000 spectral traces. Spectrum recording resolution is variable from 110 μs to 6400 s per line.
