Rigol Introduces Low Cost, Real-Time 3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer

RIGOL Technologies has announced a new low-cost Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer (RSA3000E) to its RF Test Portfolio. The New RSA3000E Spectrum Analyzers bring the power of UltraReal real-time analysis to a new class of customers who previously had no access to this advanced capability. The RSA3000E combines the power of a high performance Swept Spectrum Analyzer with the analysis capability of a Real-Time Analyzer at an unprecedented entry-level price point of $1,799.

The RSA3000E is available in 1.5GHz and 3GHz models with available tracking generators. The instruments come standard with 10 MHz of Real-time analysis bandwidth with seamless capture and a 9.3 microsecond 100%POI. The RSA3000E provides the same 7 rich visualization modes and powerful triggering capability as RIGOL’s other UltraReal products, only at a lower entry price. The RSA3000E also can function as a traditional swept spectrum analyzer with class-leading specifications. Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) is standard at 1Hz, noise floor as low as -161dBm, phase noise of -102dBc/Hz, and a full span sweep as fast as 1ms provides a powerful analyzer for the entry-level customer.

RIGOL helped create the market for entry-level spectrum analysis years ago with the DSA815 analyzer. By making it affordable and reliable the company is making spectrum analyzers accessible to an entirely new class of customers and has helped put analyzers on every test bench. This combination of performance, quality and price helped make the DSA815 the most popular spectrum analyzer on the planet. The RSA3000E is enabled with advanced analysis capabilities, which make it a perfect choice for embedded IOT engineers integrating RF technologies and those customers doing EMI pre-compliance testing.

The integrated EMI pre-compliance option (RSA3000E-EMI) provides a complete EMI Pre-Compliance Solution allowing engineers to measure, compare, analyze, and report on EMI issues throughout their design process. Features like integrated CISPR Bandwidths and Detectors, simple limit line construction, automated multi-segment scan, and up to three simultaneous detectors make it simple to get initial scans and measurements. Advanced capabilities like real-time detector measurements, automated peak/limit searches, and simple correction table integration make configuring more complex test environments and analyzing results easier than ever before. Lastly, comprehensive setup, storage and report generation capabilities make it easy to document, share, and repeat your tests.

The integrated ASK/FSK Demodulation Option (RSA3000E-ASK/FSK) allows RF engineers to characterize today’s ubiquitous ASK and FSK modulation schemes. The Demodulation Application gives engineers the ability to utilize up to 13 integrated measurement functions including I/Q waveform and RF Envelope, Constellation and Vector Diagrams, Symbol Level Decode, Time and Frequency, and Bit Error Analysis against known sequences providing quick insight into signal behaviors.

While the RSA3000E is priced to make it accessible to HAMs, hobbyists, and educators, the advanced performance and capabilities make it an attractive option for IoT device integration, EMI and other commercial applications.
