Product Overview

The RSA306 offers full-featured spectrum analysis and deep signal analysis at a price unmatched by any previous offering. Using the latest in commercial interfaces and available computing power, the RSA306 separates signal acquisition from measurement, dramatically lowering the cost of instrument hardware. Data analysis, storage and replay is performed on your personal computer, tablet or laptop. Managing the PC separately from the acquisition hardware makes processing upgrades easy, and minimizes IT management issues.
  • Full-featured spectrum analysis capability with included Tektronix SignalVu-PC™ software
  • 27 spectrum and signal analysis measurements standard
  • Options for mapping, modulation analysis, standards support, pulse measurements, frequency settling
  • Real time Spectrum/Spectrogram display to minimize time spent on transient and interference hunting
  • Application programming interface (API) included for Microsoft Windows environments
  • MATLAB instrument driver for use with Instrument Control Toolbox
  • Streaming capture records long-term events
  • Captures interference to ensure that you see problems first time, every time
  • +20 dBm to -160 dBm measurement range

Customer Reviews

TEKTRONIX - RSA306 - SPECTRUM ANALYZER, PC BASED, 9KHZ TO 6.2GHZ 5 5 1 1
RSA306 for Wireless Mic Coordiantion I have been using spectrum analyzers for my 42 years as TV engineer and Chief Engineer. The ease of use as well as the small form factor and the multitudes of analysis modes makes this an almost perfect spectrum monitoring tool. In comparison with a swept analyzer, the FFT analysis lets you capture the true bandwidth of digital spread spectrum signals. It also does a great job of capturing transient signals that leaves swept analyzers in the dust. We use the RSA306 for coordination of wireless mic signals in large venues so as to minimize interference. The low cost of the RSA306 enables us to have one in the field and one in the shop.
