The RSA7100A gives you the power to imagine new solutions

The RSA7100A is a high performance spectrum analyzer focused on wideband analysis and signal recording. By separating the RF acquisitions from the compute engine, a graphics processor can be used in place of previously-required FPGA designs for real time processing.

As processor capabilities advance, new performance can be easily maintained for the system with PC upgrades instead of RF hardware replacement, making the RSA7100A a smart choice for minimizing long-term costs. You can harness the power of this CPU/GPU combination in your own simulations and designs, using the instrument as a powerful workstation.

The RSA7100A is designed for engineers working on the latest wideband designs in communications, radar and electronic warfare and for spectrum managers who need to see the effects of new wideband systems when fielded and operational.

Analysis of signals is enabled with two software packages. SignalVu-PC for real time, spectrum and vector signal analysis, and DataVu-PC for analysis of the very large file sets produced when recording wideband signals.

SignalVu-PC software offers rich analysis capability

The RSA7100 operates with SignalVu-PC, a powerful program used as the basis of Tek's traditional spectrum analyzers. SignalVu-PC offers a deep analysis capability including real time spectrum analysis and a wide variety of application packages. Real-time processing of the DPX® spectrum/spectrogram is enabled in your PC, further reducing the cost of hardware. A programmatic interface to SignalVu-PC is provided, offering all measurements and settings to external programs. Basic functionality of the free SignalVu-PC program is far from basic and includes the measurements shown below.

Pulse analysis

The Pulse Analysis package (SVPH) provides 29 individual measurements plus cumulative statistics, opening a world of characterization for wideband pulsed system designers and evaluators. The fast-frame acquisition mode of SignalVu-PC with the RSA7100A allows you to acquire just the time of interest during your pulse, making the most efficient use of memory. Cumulative statistics displays analyze data over multiple acquisitions, further extending the analysis to millions of pulses. Displays and measurements include:

In the illustration above, a 5 GHz carrier modulated with 500 MSymbols/sec pi/4-QPSK is analyzed with the RSA7100A Option B800 and SignalVu-PC application license SVMH. A measurement summary, EVM vs. Time, and constellation display are shown along with the continuous monitoring of the DPX spectrum.

Streaming recording to RAID

With option STREAMxx-SVPC, you can stream the full real time bandwidth of the RSA7100A to the available RAID system in the controller. All other analysis (real time spectrum analysis, modulation analysis, etc.) is available simultaneous with streaming. This ability to analyze while streaming ensures the quality of your data collection, avoiding re-runs, and saving time. Two options for RAID are offered, with over 2 hours storage available at 800 MHz bandwidth. Longer recording times are available at reduced bandwidths.

RSA7100A final 19Jan2023

Easy recordings are available at the touch of a button or when a trigger is received. Anticipated file size is reported and indications of skipped frames or overload conditions are provided to ensure high-quality recording. Above we see a 5 second recording being made. DPX spectrum is providing real time monitoring of the 800 MHz acquisition. The file size, available disk space, recording progress, number of files recorded are all reported. Indicators of dropped frames and input overload are presented all in the same control screen.

DataVu-PC for analysis of long recordings

SignalVu-PC can open files up to 16 GB in size, and perform analysis on any 1 GB of the opened file. But 16 GB is just a few seconds of data in 800 MHz bandwidth, not enough for analysis of streamed recordings that can reach 30 TB in size. DataVu-PC is the solution for analysis of large files. With DataVu-PC you can view color-graded spectrums, spectrograms and amplitude vs. time of files of unlimited length. Search-and-mark testing is available to quickly identify signals of interest. Searches can be amplitude qualified, and a marker is placed on up to 2,000,000 events found. Replay of user-selected sections is offered for review of signals of interest, and selected areas can be exported to SignalVu-PC for further analysis. Pulse analysis is available within DataVu-PC, with results start/stop time, average/peak power, pulse duration, Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) and start/stop frequencies on up to 2,000,000 pulses, all exportable in Pulse Descriptor Word (PDW) format. See the separate DataVu-PC data sheet for further details.

RSA7100A final 19Jan2023

Above is a color-graded spectrum display combined with a 99% overlap spectrogram display as shown on DataVu-PC. You have full overlap/skip control to vary rate and detail of the streaming file for complete visualization of the data.

RSA7100A final 19Jan2023

DataVu-PC pulse option provides fast marking of pulses and measurements on large data sets. Above, the results of a pulse search are presented with the pulse measurements of start/stop time, average/peak power, pulse duration, Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) and start/stop frequencies on up to 2,000,000 pulses. Pulse results can be exported in PDW format for use by other tools.

Automated phase noise and jitter measurements

Phase noise degrades the ability to process Doppler information in radar systems and degrades error vector magnitude in digitally modulation communication systems. Automated phase noise and jitter measurements with a spectrum analyzer (PHAS) may reduce the cost of your measurements by reducing the need for a dedicated phase noise analyzer.

Shown below, the phase noise of a 1 GHz carrier is measured at -133 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset. Single-sideband phase noise is displayed in dBc/Hz versus offset frequencies from carrier, shown in trace or tabular form: one ±Peak trace (in blue) and one average trace (in yellow). Trace smoothing and averaging is supported.

RSA7100A final 19Jan2023

The RSA7100A's intrinsic phase noise of -134 dBc/Hz, at this frequency and across its operating range, provides ample measurement margin for a vast majority of applications.

Applications include testing VCO phase noise, oscillator phase noise, clock source jitter, signal generator phase noise, and more. The Tektronix phase noise / jitter application, when combined with DPX® signal processing, provides a powerful solution for designing and troubleshooting momentarily unstable signal sources.

The phase noise application performs automated carrier tracking, averaging, and dynamic measurement bandwidth adjustment, providing the accuracy and speed of measurement needed at all carrier offsets - ranging from 10 Hz to 1 GHz. Results are available in log-frequency trace or tabular form with pass/fail limits on-screen or via programmatic control. Integration limits are programmable for RMS phase noise, jitter, and residual FM. The low instrument phase noise of the RSA7100A together with this measurement application allows for high-performance phase noise measurements at frequencies up to 26.5 GHz.

The previous figure shows the RSA7100A typical and nominal phase noise performance.

ADC and IF overload are detected and the user is informed and streaming data is flagged, but not stopped. Furthermore, an IF overload will initiate a protection event that will switch out the input signal. If SignalVu-PC is acquiring samples when this occurs, SignalVu-PC will automatically reset the switch periodically so that if the overload condition goes away, the input will continue to be sampled normally.

If the overload occurs while SignalVu-PC is not acquiring, then before SignalVu-PC starts acquiring it will automatically set an appropriate reference level then begin acquiring. When Center Frequency (CF) is < 80 MHz and reference level is < -40 dBm with pre-amp on, LO-to-IF leakage can cause ADC overload due to the 0 Hz spur. In this case, increasing reference level will correct the overload condition.

Ordering information

RSA7100A

Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer, up to 800 MHz acquisition bandwidth. The RSA7100A includes the RF acquisition unit and the CTRL-7100A controller together as a single orderable item. The CTRL-7100A controller is also available as a separate item if additional or replacement controllers are needed.

Includes: Installation and safety manual, 3.5mm Crown Connector-Female, PCIe cable, mouse, keyboard, adapter: Mini-Display Port to HDMI, Mini-Display Port to DVI. Power cables, rack mount kits for acquisition unit and controller. Controller rack-mount is a 'telecom-style'. A server-style rackmount can also be used with the controller, available from third parties.

Note: A PC monitor is not included with the RSA7100A. Tektronix recommends the Dell UltraSharp U2414H 23.8 inch Widescreen IPS LCD Monitor, or any monitor that supports Display port, DVI or HDMI input and has a minimum 1920 x 1080 display resolution.

How to order

When ordering the RSA7100A, the CTRL7100A controller is included. The CTRL7100A is available in three configurations depending on the RAID configuration. You can select no RAID, or a RAID with 20 minutes or 120 minutes recording time. You also select between two frequency ranges and whether you would like to have an internal GPS receiver and/or an ISO17025 calibration data report.

SignalVu-PC licenses can be ordered as options to the RSA7100A and are installed on the included controller during manufacturing, minimizing order complexity and saving you time in configuration upon receiving your instrument. These licenses are node-locked to the controller and can be moved twice over the lifetime of the license. Standalone licenses, either node-locked or floating, can be ordered and customer-installed on the controller if greater flexibility is needed.

Complimentary products

DataVu-PC is recommended for users who record data using the RSA7100A streaming and RAID options. Ordering information for DataVu-PC is shown below. See the separate DataVu-PC datasheet for details on licensing, minimum PC requirements, features, and functions.

DataVu-PC ordering information

DataVu-PC is distributed via www.tek.com. Hard copy versions of the software are not available. An operation manual is distributed in .pdf format with the software.

When purchasing DataVu-PC, you choose any one of the three base version DVPC-SPAN licenses (50 MHz, 200 MHz or 1000 MHz). The only difference between span licenses is the bandwidth of the allowed analysis. Choose the bandwidth that covers the maximum bandwidth of your acquisition/recording system. For example, all USB-based analyzers are accommodated with the DVPC-SPAN50 license, and all RSA7100A recordings at full bandwidth require DVPC-SPAN1000.

DVPC-SMARK, DVPC-MREC, and DVPC-PULSE work with any DVPC-SPAN bandwidth license chosen for analysis. The DVPC-SMARK license requires a DVPC-SPAN license of any bandwidth, and the DVPC-MREC and DVPC-PULSE licenses require a DVPC-SMARK license.
