Tektronix India has introduced its spectrum analyzers based on a USB architecture for a price of $3,490.
The new RSA306 spectrum analyzers features 9 kHz to 6.2 GHz frequency range, 40 MHz real time bandwidth and weighs 1.2 pounds.
When used with TektronixSignalVu-PC software, it offers analysis capabilities for applications such as research and development, mobile radio network installation, interference hunting and university level lab classes.
The RSA306 is Tektronix’ first USB spectrum analyzer and will be joined by similar instruments taking advantage of the availability of affordable desktop computers and laptops with sufficient processing power to handle complex test and measurement analysis along with high-speed USB 3.0 interfaces.
The company claims that its real-time processing capability is 1,000 times faster than spectrum analyzers from other major suppliers.
The RSA306 will be suitable for budget conscious RF design and development; mobile radio network installation and maintenance; interference hunters and university lab classes.
