Beaverton, Oregon - January 18, 2018 - RIGOL
Technologies announces a significant addition to its portfolio of RF Test Instrumentation
with the introduction of the
New RSA5000 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer.
The RSA5000 combines the power of
a high performance swept spectrum analyzer with superior real-time performance unmatched
in this product category. Available in 3.2 GHz and 6.5 GHz models all RSA5000
Series Analyzers provide Resolution Bandwidth (RBW) down to 1 Hz, a noise floor
as low as -165 dBm, and provide a full span sweep as fast as 1ms. In addition, the
analyzer features up to 40 MHz of Real-time bandwidth, a minimum probability of
intercept (POI) of 7.45 µs, 7 rich visualization modes and powerful triggering capability,
providing a complete analysis package for engineers developing and integrating today's
"Engineers integrating WiFi, Bluetooth and other modern RF technologies are confronted
with complex challenges like frequency hopping signals, channel conflict, and spectrum
interference," says Mike Rizzo, General Manager of RIGOL North America. "The RIGOL RSA5000
Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer brings the dimension of time to RF Analysis making it easier
to monitor and characterize these complex RF systems."
Unlike most analyzers in this class RIGOL proudly specifies its Probability of Intercept
performance. The RIGOL RSA5000 takes 146,484 FFTs per second providing a minimum
100% POI of 7.45 µs. This class leading performance allows users to confidently
capture pulsing, hopping and fast transient signals as short as 7.45 µs and display
accurate power 100% of the time. The RSA5000 provides 7 rich data views to allow engineers
to visualize the most complex RF environments. Density Displays help to see time varying
signals and resolve hidden and superimposed signals in the same frequency band. Spectogram
Displays allow users to evaluate changes in signal behavior over time, especially useful
in identifying hopping patterns and characterizing PLLs. Power versus Time Displays show
the RF Power for the real time span over a user defined time span helping measure the
duration and timing of pulsing signals and characterizing signals with amplitude modulation
"RIGOL’s RSA5000 Series brings the power of Real-Time analysis into the traditional
sweeping analyzer" says Patrick André of André Consulting, Inc. "More than simply
adding speed to a measurement, the RSA5000 provides an analysis and troubleshooting tool
which can capture and help identify transient signals which are otherwise very difficult
RIGOL RSA5000 utilizes a QuadCore processor and is built on a Linux operating system.
Its flexible user interface allows customers a choice in how they interact with their
instrument. It has a 10.1" Capacitive Touch Display, supports a keyboard and mouse, or
you can utilize traditional softkey and knob control. HDMI out allows use of a large
external display and USB/LAN support allow easy networking, programming, remote control
and data sharing.
"The RSA5000 is really a transformational product. We are delivering a high performance
swept spectrum analyzer with category leading Real-time capabilities starting at just
$7,999," continues Mike Rizzo. "We are delivering significantly greater value to customers
striving to integrate RF Technology into their IoT designs."
The RSA5000 is available and shipping now. Please contact RIGOL or any authorized
partner for information.
