Tektronix, Inc., a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, has unveiled that the RSA6100A series real-time spectrum Analyser has been named a finalist for the DesignVision 2007 Award by the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) in the Test & Measurement Equipment category.
The DesignVision Awards program recognises technologies, applications, products and services judged to be unique and beneficial to the industry. Finalists in nine categories were chosen from among a record-number of competing products by a panel of judges selected from DesignCon's Technical Program Committee. This year's Technical Program Committee consisted of 96 of the industry's top thought leaders.
IEC’s DesignVision Awards honour those catalysing positive change in high-technology, business, and academia, completely in line with the IEC's mission. IEC is delighted to recognise its DesignVision Finalists and share the design advancements and innovators with the entire industry.
The Tektronix RSA6100A series of real-time spectrum analysers provide an unmatched combination of real-time performance, capture bandwidth, and dynamic range to meet the needs of a broad range of cutting-edge digital RF applications.
DPX waveform image processor technology transforms volumes of real-time data to produce a live RF spectrum presentation that reveals previously unseen RF signals and signal anomalies. Live RF is achieved by improving the spectrum measurement rate nearly 1000 times compared to a fast swept spectrum and vector signal analysers (VSA).
The revolutionary Live RF spectrum display provides an intuitive live colour view of signal transients changing over time in the frequency domain, giving a user immediate confidence in the stability of their design, or instantly displaying a fault when it occurs.
The RSA6100A also provides a unique Frequency Mask Trigger (FMT) that allows the user to trigger a measurement based on the occurrence of a unique pattern of events in the spectrum, including triggering on weak transient signals while ignoring strong known signals.
Tektronix real-time spectrum analysers are the first and only analysers designed specifically to solve digital RF problems, according to Tektronix. This is an increasingly significant problem, as an explosion of technologies is using a limited radio spectrum, resulting in a highly complex technology environment. The award is a positive indicator that the RSA6100A series are meeting the needs of Tektronix’s customers and their challenges in a growing wireless communications world.
Tektronix real-time spectrum analysers are available from TekMark Australia .
