Saelig Company, Inc. announces the availability of the compact RTSA7500 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer – a powerful, full-featured spectrum analyzer designed to analyze wireless signals in real-time (not progressively scanned). This is essential for seeing intermittent and frequency-hopped signals. The RTSA7500 has all the standard features of a sophisticated, expensive bench-top spectrum analyzer, but at far lower cost since it uses the display and processing power of an attached PC. Frequency controls, marker functions for tracking specific frequencies and multi-trace functionality are all included, as well as a real-time triggering for measuring complex data signals such as Wi-Fi and LTE. Sophisticated FPGA-based digital signal processing within the RTSA7500 enables the capture of elusive time-varying signals across an instantaneous bandwidth of up to 100MHz.
The real-time analysis of the RTSA7500 combines patented, low-cost digital software-defined radio technology, open source software, standard APIs, and a PC-controlled architecture to provide unparalleled performance in a very economical instrument. And the widescreen view of a laptop or PC monitor enables enhanced viewing not available on instruments with built-in screens.
Monitoring dynamic and agile signals usually requires a large budget instrument, but the RTSA7500’s advanced real-time spectrum analysis performance comes at a price that is as affordable as an ordinary spectrum analyzer. It utilizes industry-leading APIs/standards (including LabView drivers) and open-source code to allow easy customization, remote control, and installation in test fixtures.
The RTSA7500 processes RF signals at a speed fast enough to detect any signals in a given captured bandwidth. Signals can be viewed in the frequency and time domains as well as power spectral density to enable analysis of signals that may be undetectable to the human eye. It also provides the capability to trigger on events, capture them, and record them for playback and subsequent deeper analysis. Another important and useful feature of the RTSA7500 is the ability to make measurements remotely via the Internet. This is ideal for monitoring applications where personnel are not always available.
Who needs a Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer? Anyone dealing with signals that vary dynamically in amplitude or are agile in frequency: pulsed radar systems, frequency-hopping spread spectrum radios, and pulse modulated radios; multi-signal environments: ISM bands – 915 MHz, 2.4, 5.8, and 24 GHz; or unwanted signals such as unintentional or self-interference, intentional interference (jammers), and listening devices (bugs). The RTSA7500 can be utilized anywhere in the wireless ecosystem – R & D, Education, Manufacturing, Deployment, and Monitoring.
The Model RTSA7500 is a powerful and cost-effective solution for spectrum analyzer needs in the lab, on the manufacturing floor or out in the field.It is available in four versions: RTSA7500-8B – 100 kHz to 8 GHz with 10 MHz RTBW; RTSA7500-8 – 100 kHz to 8 GHz with 100 MHz RTBW; RTSA7500-18 – 100 kHz to 18 GHz with 100 MHz RTBW; RTSA7500-27 – 100 kHz to 27 GHz with 100 MHz RTBW.
Made by Berkeley Nucleonics, a leading manufacturer of precision electronic instrumentation for test, measurement, and nuclear research, the RTSA7500 Real-time Spectrum Analyzer is available now from Saelig Company, Inc. their USA technical distributor.
