A new entry in the stable of the Rigol DSA800 spectrum analyser Series has been announced by Saelig. The DSA832E is a high performance, economical, and compact 9kHz to 3.2GHz instrument. A tracking generator function is available with the "-TG" model. The digital IF circuitry guarantees reliability and performance that meets the most demanding RF applications.
The rugged but affordable spectrum analyser has a broad set of features and specs, including a large eight-inch WVGA colour LCD and intuitive front panel controls.
Available options include a preamplifier for very small signals, a VSWR measurement toolkit for configuring and evaluating antennas, as well as an advanced measurement kit that enables additional functions such as channel boundaries and signal-to-noise ratio measurements.
The instrument has a 10Hz Minimum Resolution Bandwidth: with -148dBm Displayed Average Noise Level (DANL) for low-level signal measurements and Zero Span Function which allows the signal envelope to be seen when demodulating an AM signal
Excellent single sideband phase noise allows nearby small signals to be accurately measured.
Powerful PC Software enables a user to remotely control and setup, read back the data, perform measurements and data analysis as well as display powerful spectrograms and waterfall graphs.
The analyser also boasts EMI Pre-compliance Test Software to quickly locate product problems, enabling them to pass subsequent formal EMC testing. For Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and other RF designs, high performance specs like SSB Phase Noise as low as -90 dBc/Hz (10kHz offset) allow engineers to more accurately analyse modulation and noise issues in signals of interest.
Whether debugging an RF transceiver set, designing layout or configuration changes to maximise efficiency, or testing a system in noisy environments, the economical DSA832E Spectrum Analyser helps to quickly and affordably identify and examine areas of RF concern.
