USB Spectrum Analyzer Crew Adds 13- & 18-GHz Models

Tektronix expands its RSA500 family of battery powered USB-based spectrum analyzers with the addition of the RSA513A and RSA518A, offering 13-GHz and 18-GHz frequency ranges respectively. Along with their higher frequency support, these instruments provide the ability to stream I & Q data for performing analysis consistent with software-defined radio functionality. Applications range from spectrum management applications such as Ku band radar and 5G LTE base station testing to military applications such as like RADHAZ and EMCON monitoring. 

 

In today's crowded RF environment, spectrum analyzer users increasingly need to measure wider bandwidth signals, at higher frequencies, for gapless capture of RF signals. With their unique ability to stream I & Q data out of the instrument, RSA500 analyzers enable both capture and playback of wideband signals for further analysis offline – a largely unmet need in the market, according to HawkEye 360, a developer of satellite-based precision geoanalytic products.
