Wideband RF Signal Analyzer Adds Streaming Capabilities

Tektronix has added IQFlow functionality to its RSA7100A wideband signal analyzer. This enhancement delivers the speed and flexibility needed to perform real-time digital signal processing (DSP) and support hardware in the loop (HWIL or HIL) test for radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems.


The RSA7100A's real-time analysis for live monitoring of recording events allows systems engineers to ensure they are getting the data they need from their time-consuming test scenarios. With new streaming APIs and interfaces, including support for 40 GbE and LVDS, the analyzer offers the performance and ready-to-go convenience that system engineers need to move forward with their next-generation designs.


The RSA7100A’s DPX spectrum/spectrogram display provides 100% probability of intercept of up to 419 ns signals in an 800 MHz span. The analyzer’s 16 kHz to 26.5 GHz frequency range covers a broad range of analysis needs, including radar & spectrum management applications.


System pricing starts at $135,000.  For more enlightenment, visit the RAS7100A product page.
