DSA602A Tektronix Signal Analyzer

The DSA602A is a 1 GHz signal analyzer from Tektronix. Engineers use signal analyzers to combine the capabilities of spectrum and vector signal analyzers. A signal analyzer is a piece of electronic test equipment that takes measurements of power, magnitude, distortion, phase noise, modulation, and demodulation quality of input signals.

Additional Features:

  • 1 GHz bandwidth
  • 2 GS/s sample rate
  • Max. 8 bit vertical resolution
  • 32K record length
  • Over 24 waveform functions and 24 automatic measurements
  • 3.5" floppy, Centronics, RS-232 and GPIB interfaces
  • Color display

The Tektronix DSA602A oscilloscope is a graph-displaying device – it draws a graph of an electrical signal. In most applications, the graph shows how signals change over time: the vertical (Y) axis represents voltage and the horizontal (X) axis represents time. The intensity or brightness of the display is sometimes called the Z axis.

The Tektronix DSA602A oscilloscope's simple graph can tell you many things about a signal, such as: the time and voltage values of a signal, the frequency of an oscillating signal, the “moving parts” of a circuit represented by the signal, the frequency with which a particular portion of the signal is occurring relative to, other portions, whether or not a malfunctioning component is distorting the signal, how much of a signal is direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC) and how much of the signal is noise and whether the noise is changing with time.
