The RSA6100A Chosen for Ability to Change Wireless Test
Beaverton, OR -- Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE:TEK) today announced that
Electronic Design Magazine has chosen the RSA6100A Real-time
Spectrum Analyzer for the Best Technology and Design Award for 2006,
the only test and measurement instrument receiving the honor. The
selections for the best technologies of the year appear in the
December, 2006 issue of the magazine or online: http://www.electronicdesign.com/Issues/IssueID/532/532.html.
|The field of
candidates began with the hundreds of briefings and demonstrations
Electronic Design's editors participate in each year. Looking at the
key technologies covered in the magazine's pages and online during
the year, together with reader feedback, the technical editors chose
the products and solutions they feel had the greatest impact on
design this year.
"The 'Best Electronic Design' issue highlights some of the
technologies most significant to advancing electronic design, like
the RSA6100A," said Mark David, Editor-in-Chief of Electronic Design
magazine. "Whether testing advanced radio technologies like
software-defined radio (SDR), 4G cell phone and broadband wireless,
multicarrier power amps, radar, or any other communications or
wireless device, this analyzer brings some useful new features and
so exemplifies what we are trying to achieve in bringing the years'
significant innovations to our readers. All communications and
wireless engineers need the best spectrum analyzer they can afford,
and Tektronix' RSA6100A real-time spectrum analyzer really stands
out. The best new technologies help our readers produce the best
"We appreciate the recognition for our RSA6100A Real-Time Spectrum
Analyzer from the editors of Electronic Design magazine," said Rick
King, Vice President, Spectrum Analyzer Product Line, Tektronix,
Inc. "Tektronix recognized several years ago that digital RF
technologies utilized in an increasingly broad range of end user
devices from multimedia PDAs to sophisticated radar systems create a
highly complex technical environment and the need for test tools
whose capabilities mirror the time-varying nature of today's RF
signals. The RSA6100A series of Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers are the
most capable and effective instruments available for solving even
the most demanding digital RF test challenges."

The Tektronix RSA6100A Series of Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers that
provides an unmatched combination of real-time performance, capture
bandwidth, and dynamic range to meet the needs of a broad range of
cutting-edge digital RF applications. DPX™ waveform image processor
technology transforms volumes of real-time data to produce a live RF
spectrum presentation that reveals previously unseen RF signals and
signal anomalies. Live RF is achieved by improving the spectrum
measurement rate nearly 1000 times compared to the fastest swept
spectrum and vector signal analyzers (VSA).
