DSA815 Spectrum Analyzer

The  DSA815 spectrum analyzer redefines the product category by setting new standards for performance and price. The DSA815 features a unique widescreen display, compact design and easy-to-use interface and operations, making it ideal for benchtop or field applications in RF and wireless testing and production.

The new spectrum analyzer offers the ability to measure smaller signals using our digital IF filter, which allows for smaller bandwidth settings and reduces displayed noise levels. The DSA815 also distinguishes between signals with a frequency difference as little as 100 Hz.   It includes a wide range of standard functions including AM/FM demodulation and a preamplifier. In addition, select from various options that include an EMI filter, quasi-peak detector kit and a 1.5 GHz tracking generator.
