Time-Correlated Multi-domain RF Analysis with the MSO70000 Series Oscilloscope and SignalVu™ Software

April 13, 2011


The MSO70000 Series Mixed Oscilloscope, when coupled with SignalVu™ Spectrum Analysis Software, becomes an integrated high performance analysis tool to handle the most advanced RF and microwave transmitter design challenges. This pair provides industry-leading bandwidth of up to 20 GHz and the industry's highest waveform capture rate, best signal fidelity, lowest noise floor and the only available hardwarebased serial pattern trigger for data rates up to 5 Gb/s. The MSO70000 also includes 16 logic channels with an 80 picosecond timing accuracy.

The SignalVu Spectrum Analysis software, available on the MSO70000 Series products, can easily validate wideband RF and microwave designs and characterize wideband spectral events. By combining the signal analysis engine of the realtime spectrum analyzer with that of the industry's widest bandwidth mixed signal digital oscilloscopes, you can now evaluate complex signals up to 20 GHz or 40 GHz Baseband IQ, without the need of an external down converter or multiple logic analysis instruments.
