The RSA600 Series gives you the bandwidth and analysis tools you need to succeed

The RSA600 series brings real-time spectrum analysis and wide analysis bandwidth to solving the problems of engineers who need to characterize, validate and manufacture their designs. The heart of the system is the USB-based RF spectrum analyzer that captures 40 MHz bandwidths with great fidelity. With 70 dB dynamic range and frequency coverage to 7.5 GHz, you can fully characterize wideband signals up to 40 MHz bandwidths. The USB form factor moves the processing power to the PC of your choice, so you decide when you need more processing power or memory.

The optional tracking generator enables gain/loss measurements for quick tests of filters, amplifiers, duplexers and other components, and you can add cable and antenna measurements of VSWR, return loss, distance to fault, and cable loss as needed.

SignalVu-PC software offers rich analysis capability for your lab

The RSA600 series operates with SignalVu-PC, a powerful program used as the basis of Tek's traditional spectrum analyzers. SignalVu-PC offers a deep analysis capability previously unavailable in low-cost laboratory solutions. Real-time processing of the DPX spectrum/spectrogram is enabled in your PC, further reducing the cost of hardware. Customers who need programmatic access to the instrument can choose either the SignalVu-PC programmatic interface or use the included application programming interface (API) that provides a rich set of commands and measurements directly. Basic functionality of the free SignalVu-PC program is far from basic. Base version measurements are shown below.

  

  

  

The RSA600A combined with SignalVu-PC offers advanced measurements

With 40 MHz of real-time bandwidth, the unique DPX spectrum/spectrogram shows you every instance of an interfering or unknown signal, even down to 27 μs in duration. The following image shows a WLAN transmission (green and orange), and the narrow signals that repeat across the screen are a Bluetooth access probe. The spectrogram (upper part of the screen) clearly separates these signals in time to show any signal collisions.


RSA600A-Spectrum-Analyzer-Datasheet


Finding unexpected signals is easy with unattended mask monitoring. A mask can be created on the DPX spectrum display, and actions taken upon every violation, including stop, save a picture, save acquisition, or send an audible alert. In the illustration below, a mask violation has occurred in red on the mask, and a picture of the screen was saved as a result. Mask testing can be used for unattended monitoring and when playing back recorded signals, enabling testing for different violations on the same signals.

The tracking generator (Option 04 on the RSA600) is controlled via SignalVu-PC. A bandpass filter response from 800 MHz to 3 GHz is shown below. Option SV60 adds return loss, cable loss, and distance to fault.

EMC/EMI

EMI pre-compliance and diagnostic measurements are easy with the instrument and SignalVu-PC. Transducer, antenna, preamplifier, and cable gain/loss can be entered and stored in correction files, and the standard spurious measurement feature of SignalVu-PC can be used to establish limit lines for your test. The following illustration shows a test from 30MHz to 960 MHz against the FCC Part 15 Class A limit shown shaded. The blue trace is the capture of Ambient. Violations are recorded in the results table below the graph. CISPR quasi peak and average detectors can be added with option SVQP.

The EMC pre-compliance solution can be added with option EMCVU. It supports many predefined limit lines. It also adds a wizard for easy setup of recommended antennas, LISN, and other EMC accessories with a one-button push. When using the new EMC-EMI display, you can accelerate the test by applying the time consuming quasi peak only on failures. This display also provides a push-button ambient measurement. The Inspect tool lets you measure frequencies of interest locally, removing the need for scanning.

Licenses
Licenses

A variety of optional, licensed applications are available for purchase for SignalVu-PC. These licenses can be associated with and stored on either your PC or any RSA300 series, RSA500 series, RSA600 series, and RSA7100A spectrum analyzers. Licenses can be purchased as an option to your hardware or separately as a Node-locked or a Floating license.

Contact your local Tektronix Account Manager to purchase a license. If your purchased license is not ordered as an option to your instrument, you will receive an email with a list of the applications purchased and the URL to the Tektronix Product License Web page, where you will create an account and can then manage your licenses using the Tektronix Asset Management System (AMS): http://www.tek.com/products/product-license.

AMS provides an inventory of the license(s) in your account. It enables you to check out or check in a license and view the history of licenses.

Optional applications are enabled by one of the following license types.

License type Description
Node locked license (NL) purchased as an option to your instrument This license i s initially assigned to a specific host id, which can be either a PC or an instrument. It can be reassociated to either a PC or another spectrum analyzer two times using Tek AMS.
When associated with an instrument, this license is factory-installed on that instrument at the time of manufacture. It will be recognized by any PC operating with SignalVu-PC when the instrument is connected. However, the licensed application is deactivated from the PC if the licensed instrument is disconnected.
This is the most common form of licensing, as it simplifies management of your applications.
Node locked license (NL) purchased separately This license is initially assigned to a specific host id, which can be either a PC or an instrument. It can be reassociated to either a PC or instrument two times using Tek AMS.
This license is delivered via email and is associated with either your PC or with an instrument when you install the license.
This license should be purchased when you want your license to stay on your PC, or if you have an existing USB instrument on which you would like to install a license.
Floating license(FL) purchased separately This license can be moved between different host ids, which can be either PCs or instruments. It can be reassociated to different PCs or instruments an unlimited number of times using Tek AMS. This license is delivered via email and is associated with either your PC or with an instrument when you install the license.
This is the most flexible license and is recommended in applications where the license needs to be moved frequently.
