"Primer" Helps Designers With Real-Time Spectrum Analysis

A downloadable primer from Tektronix describes how the company's patented Digital Phosphor technology allows the RSA6100A series of real-time spectrum analyzers to detect brief, intermittent, complex or coincident signals. These signals are often missed by conventional spectrum analyzers and vector signal analyzers.

The primer also covers methods for achieving the RSA6100A's key performance specifications: detection and measurements on a signal as short as 24 µs, and 48,828 spectral transforms per second, compressed into a display that is easier to read than a conventional spectrum trace.
