Advanced Performance and stability
Stability and precision is the primary design goal of the Series DSA1000A.
We started with an all digital IF core. With the minimum 10Hz resolution
bandwidth, -88 dBc/Hz phase noise (typical) at 10 kHz offset, up to -148
dBm displayed average noise level (10 Hz RBW, standard preamplifier on)
and less than 1.0 dB total amplitude error, the Series DSA1000A makes
high precision measurements easier than ever whether the application
calls for low noise or narrow resolution.
Incomparable Value
With the Series DSA1000A get a high quality spectrum analyzer without
the price tag. This lowers the investment whether you are in stages related
to research and development or manufacturing and maintenance. Don't
let instrumentation costs dictate resource allocation. With our available
calibration and maintenance training as well as firmware updates never
regret a purchase because of total cost of ownership.
Breadth of measurement functions and
automatic settings provide ultimate flexibility
DSA1000A provides a series of automatic setting functions such as Auto
Tune, Auto Range, Auto Scale and Auto Couple that enable the analyzer to
acquire signals and match parameters automatically, instead of the manual
process used by a traditional analyzer. In addition, the User and Factory
settings under the Preset function enable users to quickly and easily recall
previous measurement settings.

Benefits of Rigol's all digital IF design
1.The ability to measure smaller signals: on the basis of this technology,
the IF filter enables smaller bandwidth settings, which greatly reduce the
displayed average noise level.
2.The ability to distinguish between small signals by frequency: using the
IF filter with the smallest bandwidth setting it is possible to make out
signals with a frequency difference of only 10 Hz.
3.High precision amplitude readings: this technology almost eliminates
the errors generated by filter switching, reference level uncertainty,
scale distortion, as well as errors produced in the process of switching
between logarithmic and linear display of amplitude when using a
traditional analog IF design.
4.Higher reliability: compared with traditional analog designs, the digital
IF greatly reduces the complexity of the hardware, the system instability
caused by channel aging, and the temperature sensitivity that can
contribute to parts failure.
5.High measurement speed: the use of digital IF technology improves the
bandwidth precision and selectivity of the filter, minimizing the scanning
time and improving the speed of the measurement.

Breadth of measurement functions enhance value:
The DSA1000A series has many standard advanced measurement
functions, including Time domain Power, Channel Power, Adjacentchannel Power, Occupied Bandwidth, Carrier to Noise Ratio, Harmonic
Distortion, Intermodulation Distortion, Pass/Fail, Frequency Count, N dB,
Noise Marker and so on, to meet the requirements of a broad set of user's
measurements. In addition, the DSA PC Software(Ultra Spectrum) could
provide more analysis and diaplay functions such as the waterfall curves to
expand the measurement capabilities to even more applications.
Flexible connectivity
Compact and rugged design
With the available interfaces for the Series DSA1000A, remote control
is easy through USB, LAN, or GPIB. Integrate a test system quickly with
standard SCPI commands.
The compact and rugged design makes the Series DSA1000A ideal for
many portable and field applications. Spot tests are easier than ever
with a small, light weight (13.7 lbs plus the battery) analyzer with 3 hour
battery operation, easy carry system, and extra storage space (nonvolatile
memory) onboard as well as the ability to store data directly to a USB flask
device.
