Tektronix SignalVu VSA Software

RF and Vector Signal Analysis for Oscilloscopes

Use the SignalVu with an MSO/DPO5000, DPO7000, or DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series digital oscilloscope to easily validate wideband designs and characterize wideband spectral events. Whether your design validation needs include wideband radar, high data rate satellite links, wireless LAN, WiGig IEEE 802.11ad/ay, or frequency-hopping communications, SignalVu can speed your time-to-insight by showing you the time-variant behavior of these wideband signals.

Tektronix SignalVu VSA Software Product Description

SignalVu RF and vector signal analysis software combines the signal analysis engine of the RSA5000 Series real-time spectrum analyzer with that of the industry's leading digital oscilloscopes, making it possible for designers to evaluate complex signals without an external down converter. You get the functionality of a vector signal analyzer, a spectrum analyzer, and the powerful trigger capabilities of a digital oscilloscope - all in a single package. You can use SignalVu with an MSO/DPO5000, DPO7000, or DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series digital oscilloscope to easily validate wideband designs and characterize wideband spectral events. Whether your design validation needs include wideband radar, high data rate satellite links, wireless LAN, WiGig IEEE 802.11ad/ay, or frequency-hopping communications, SignalVu can speed your time-to-insight by showing you the time-variant behavior of these wideband signals. The 5GNR analysis plug-in is supported on Windows 10 (SignalVu), DPO70000 SX oscilloscope models.
