VSA mode enhances spectrum analyser family

The release of an integrated Vector Signal Analyser Application Mode for Complex Signal Analysis is a significant addition to Rigol Technologies’ UltraReal family of Real-Time Spectrum Analysers.

The VSA Measurement Application allows RF engineers to characterise most of today's complex RF modulation schemes including QAM and QPSK as well as ASK, MSK and FSK signals.

The Application gives engineers ability to utilise up to 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 behaviours.

Engineers working with common Cellular, Wireless, and Terrestrial Radio standards will benefit from the VSA application's simple preinstalled instrument setup for standards like GSM, W-CDMA, Bluetooth, Zigbee, 802.11b, APCO 25, and many others.  

This helps speed time-to-debug and eliminates the frustrations associated with test setup.

"The rapid expansion of IoT devices has created an ever more complex RF environment as more data is pushed through an already crowded spectrum" says Michael Rizzo, General Manager of RIGOL North America. "Engineers integrating these technologies need affordable, powerful and easy-to-use tools to quickly characterise their transceivers and identify communication errors.  We are pleased that the RSA5000 Spectrum Analyser and the new VSA Measurement application can support this emerging need."

The VSA Option is available pre or post purchase on the RSA5000 Series Spectrum Analyser as a software enabled option.
