The RSA503A is a USB based Real Time Spectrum Analyzer that operates from 9 kHz to 3GHz. This rugged battery operated analyzer can be controlled from a PC/Tablet using Tektronix SignalVu-PC RF Signal Analysis Software to provide real time spectrum analysis, streaming capture and deep signal analysis capabilities. This USB-based spectrum analyzer captures 40 MHz bandwidth with great fidelity, has a dynamic range of 70 dB and has an optional tracking generator with an integrated internal bridge for basic device, cable and antenna testing. It is ideal for mobile field operations, manufacturing test and characterization of RF devices, subsystems, and systems. It is ideal for spectrum management, interference hunting, maintenance, installation and repair of radio networks.
Compared to traditional spectrum analyzers, these USB-based instruments represent an exceptional value with pricing levels that fall about 60 percent of traditional standalone instruments with comparable performance. Through a standard USB 3.0 connection, the instruments are operated from a desktop PC, laptop or tablet using an updated version of the full-featured SignalVu-PC software suite included at no additional cost that provides 17 measurements, real-time DPX signal processing, and a range of application-specific add-on modules for in-depth analysis.
