There are two models of Rigol’s popular DSA spectrum analysers as well as a Mixed-Signal Oscilloscope (MSO) and a PC software customized for the needs of measurements on switching power supplies.

The two spectrum analysers, the DSA832 and the DSA875, complement Rigol’s line-up with maximum frequencies of 3.2 and 7.5GHz. Targeting measurements at sophisticated systems, the specs of these two analysers exceed the DSA815-T by far. An examples is the SSB phase noise of -98 dBc/Hz at a 10 kHz offset which makes it possible to analyse at high precision modulations and noise surrounding the signal of interest, one of the indispensible tasks to ensure debugging and immunity testing of transceiver systems.

The 7.5 GHz instrument enables users to investigate the 3rd harmonic of 2.4 GHz applications like WiFi or ZigBee equipment. Additionally, resolution bandwidth settings down to 10 Hz means more precise visualization of low power RF signals. The EMI-DSA800 option enables users perform the EMI RBW settings and the Quasi-Peak filter across the spectrum of interest for compliance and immunity testing. Furthermore, Rigol offers additional functionalities and options for the new models, including a tracking generator.

Also at the exhibition are two Mixed-Signal Oscilloscopes: The entry-level MSO1000Z with a bandwidth from 70 to 100 MHz and the midrange model MSO2000A which offers a bandwidth of 300 MHz. Both new models feature Rigol’s ultra-vision technology which have been introduced with the DS6000 series and stand for high functionality.

Designed to reduce test time in R&D as well as in failure analysis applications, the DS2000A and DS1000Z series oscilloscopes facilitate detecting signal and device characteristics. Comprehensive trigger functions, advanced hardware based real time waveform records, replay, search and analysis functions enable users to perform their tasks with higher productivity. A new feature is the multilingual user interface which allows easy configuration in the respective local language.

Besides these "hardware" oscilloscopes, Rigol will present a PC software dedicated to perform standard measurements on switching power supplies. Ultra Power Analyser, as the software is labeled, works in combination with the Rigol oscilloscopes of the DS/MSO2000A, DS4000 and DS6000 product families and allows users to set up small test systems. Thus, they get an instrument at hand that enables them to measure switching power supply parameters during development and series production at reasonable price. For instance, to be compliant with standards such as IEC61000-3-2, power supply vendors need to prove that their products meet these standards; the software enables them to perform the associated measurements. Implemented on software basis, the Ultra Power Analyser enables them to perform these measurements at lower cost.

Like other software products that enhance the functionality of Rigol oscilloscopes and Arbitrary Function Generators, such as the Ultra Scope and Ultra Station, the Ultra Power Power Analyser is obtainable for free download at the Rigol Website ( ) Other software products like Ultra Spectrum for Rigol’s DAS series Spectrum analyser and Ultra View for the Digital Voltmeter DM3058 however are subject to license fees.
