Vector Signal Analysis Option Enhances Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers

RIGOL Technologies extends the functionality of its UltraReal family of Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers with an integrated Vector Signal Analyzer Application Mode for complex signal analysis. The VSA Measurement Application allows RF engineers to characterize most of today's complex RF modulation schemes including QAM and QPSK as well as ASK, MSK and FSK signals. Users have access to as many as 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.

The VSA application offers a simple preinstalled instrument setup for standards like GSM, W-CDMA, Bluetooth, Zigbee, 802.11b, APCO 25, and many others. It is available pre or post purchase on the RSA5000 Series Spectrum Analyzer as a software enabled option.  Option RSA5000-VSA has a list price of $1,999 and is available immediately for purchase.   To learn more, checkout RIGOL Vector Signal Analysis Solutions.
