How to reduce or lower noise floor? (DSA815 and DSA1030)
A simple sequence of settings will help you dig into the noise floor. With any Spectrum Analyser, setting up the (1) Span, (2) Attenuator, (3) Pre-amp and (4) Resolution Bandwidth settings - these are
RIGOL 3GHz Spectrum Analyser - Applications insights from RIGOL-UK's customers.
1. Simple modulation testing above UHF. First I get straight on with monitoring typical modulation sidebands, I’m at 2,320MHz with DSA1030A-TG3 - a performance spectrum analyser from RIGOL incor
Is there an attenuator built-in on RIGOL's DSA815?
Yes, but you should still take care never to exceed the DSA815's max input power or voltage (+20dBm or 100mW and 50VDC abs. max - pulsed waveforms can easily exceed this e.g. direct from a LISN - see
I just received mine… how can I tell if it's working OK?
First follow the procedure for Factory Reset. Then check the noise performance is as it should be. You will need a carefuly sequence of settings for this… use the quick video tip on our RIGOL pages.
