Product Description

Tektronix RSA5103A

Real Time Signal Analyzer

The RSA5000 Series replaces conventional high-performance signal analyzers, offering the measurement confidence and functionality you demand for everyday tasks. A +17 dBm TOI and –154 dBm/Hz DANL at 2 GHz gives you the dynamic range you expect for challenging spectrum analysis measurements. All analysis is fully preselected and image free. You never have to compromise between dynamic range and analysis bandwidth by ‘switching out the preselector’. A complete toolset of power and signal statistics measurements are standard, including Channel Power, ACLR, CCDF, and Occupied Bandwidth.
