DPX® Live RF Spectrum Display

Discover the most difficult to find signal behaviour. Improve test confidence and catch very short duration transients missed by conventional spectrum analyzers.

Triggering expertise

Save time by isolating signal anomalies on which other instruments can't even trigger. Isolate hard to find hardware and software anomalies with cross-domain triggering between multiple instruments.

Seamless data capture

Observe the entire duration of signal events, like frequency hopping sequences, PLL settling times, turn on transients, and multiple pulses.

Multi-domain time correlation

Accelerate troubleshooting and analysis by pinpointing the root cause of problems in multiple domains. Analyze captured data in any/all domains at any time with correlated markers.

Automatic pulse measurement and detection Simplify test and save test time with multiple measurements on the same captured data. Reduce cost of test with a versatile single instrument that replaces multiple test sets.


SignalVu-PC Software

SignalVu-PC brings power and versatility to the RSA7100 Series

The base version ships free with the product and contains 17 measurements. Options may be added for pulse analysis, GP modulation analysis, settling time, commercial standards (WLAN, Bluetooth, LTE), Signal Classification, and more to configure the software for your application.

SignalVu-PC is the foundation of RF and vector signal analysis software that helps you easily validate RF designs. It is based on the signal analysis engine of the RSA5000 Series real-time signal analyzers. You can now move your analysis of acquisitions of the instrument and anywhere. Whether your design validation needs include wideband radar, high data rate satellite links, wireless LAN or frequency-hopping communications, the SignalVu-PC comprehensive suite of tools and application software can speed your time-to-insight by showing you the time-variant behaviour of these signals.

SignalVu-PC Introduction and Basic Settings

This video is intended to assist anyone who is new to the Tektronix Realtime Spectrum Analyser software, "SignalVu-PC", and provide instruction on using the controls to make RF measurements.

Sweep speed comparison

SignalVu-PC October 2017 Improvements

10 Great New Features

Software update gives dramatic sweep speed increase

The September 2017 version of SignalVu-PC comes with 10 great new features. The most significant upgrade is an increase in sweep speed. Acquire data five to six times faster with this updated version of SignalVu-PC.

Other significant improvements:

  • DPX 100% POI Performance Improvement
  • Windows 10 support
  • CISPR Quasi-Peak, Average and Peak detection in Spectrum and Spurious displays. (Opt SVQP)
  • Multiple Traces in 'spurious' display
  • SignalVu-PC licenses can now be loaded into the instrument for RSA306/500/600.
  • Amplitude Correction for all measurements
  • Bluetooth V5 measurements. (Opt SV31 with Opt SV27)
  • Midas streaming file support
  • 1024 QAM support in WiFi measurements

Since then, there have been further improvements...

DataVu-PC Software

DataVu-PC Record-Analysis Software for Realtime Spectrum Analysers

When combined with the signal recording capabilities of all Tektronix USB and PCIe-based spectrum analyzers, DataVu-PC can turn hours of attended monitoring into fast post-acquisition search, mark, and measurement tasks. Analyze your results without adding the extra step of conversion software.

Search based on signal amplitude characteristics, marking each event occurrence for later examination

Make an unlimited number of Scalar pulse measurements with the eMarker application and export the results in Pulse Descriptor Word format for integration into other workflows.

Export results to in-depth analysis packages like SignalVu-PC from within DataVu-PC – without any additional conversion software.

Three bandwidth options make DataVu-PC the most affordable way to analyze large files from all Tektronix Spectrum Analysers.
