DSA1000 Series 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.
Stability and precision is the primary design goal of the DSA1000 Series. It started with an all digital IF core With the minimum 10Hz resolutionbandwidth, -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 DSA1000 Series makes high precision measurements easier than ever whether the application calls for low noise or narrow resolution.

  • The ability to measure smaller signals: on the basis of this technology, the IF fi lter enables smaller bandwidth settings, which greatly reduce the displayed average noise level.
  • The ability to distinguish between small signals by frequency: using the IF fi lter with the smallest bandwidth setting it is possible to make out signals with a frequency difference of only 10 Hz.
  • High precision amplitude readings: this technology almost eliminates the errors generated by fi lter 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
