Product Information

The Rigol DSA815-TG is a compact and light Spectrum Analyzer with premium performance for portable applications. The use of digital IF (intermediate frequency) technology guarantees reliability and performance to meet the most demanding RF applications.

This version is the base unit and does not include the tracking generator.  The TG version includes the generator.

The very large display (20.3 cm / 8") of the Rigol DSA815 Spectrum Analyzer with a resolution of 800x480pixels provides a very good overview over all its comfortable functions like Auto Tune, Auto Range, Auto Scale and Auto Couple. These functions enable the analyzer to acquire signals and match parameters automatically, instead of the manual process necessary with a traditional analyzer.

The Rigol Spectrum Analyzers have a sophisticated and easy to use user interface and offers multiple functions for all tasks. The menu navigation is very intuitional in use and all functions and parameters are easy to reach because of the graphical interface.

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.

Specifications

Specifications
Specifications are valid under the following conditions: the instrument is within the calibration period, is stored for at least two hours at 0ºC to 50ºC temperature, and is warmed up for 40 minutes. Unless otherwise noted, the specifications in this manual include the measurement uncertainty.
Typical (typ.): characteristic performance, which 80 percent of the measurement results will meet at room temperature (approximately 25ºC ). This data is not warranted and does not include the measurement uncertainty.
Nominal (nom.): the expected mean or average performance or a designed attribute (such as the 50 Ω connector). This data is not warranted and is measured at room temperature (approximately 25ºC ).
Measured (meas.): an attribute measured during the design phase which can be compared to the expected performance, such as the amplitude drift variation with time. This data is not warranted and is measured at room temperature (approximately 25ºC ). NOTE: All charts in this manual are the measurement results of multiple instruments at room temperature unless otherwise noted. The specifications (except the TG specifications) listed in this manual are those when the tracking generator is off.

Q: What kind of warranty does Rigol offer?
A: All of the Rigol products offer a 30-day evaluation period and a 3 year warranty.

Q: Can I save a picture of the display on the DSA815-TG?
A: Yes. You may insert a USB memory stick into the front panel and press the "Printer Icon" or "Storage" button on the front panel to save a picture of the display to the USB.

Q: Does the Rigol DSA815-TG come with a tracking generator?
A: Yes, the DSA815-TG does come with the tracking generator and preamplifier.

Q: Can the DSA815-TG demodulate input signals?
A: Yes. The can demodulate AM and FM signals.
