Many modern RF signals exhibit rapid time-variations, or transient interference. The real-time spectrum analyzer was developed to discover, trigger on, capture, and analyze such signals. This paper will discuss the differences between traditional and real-time spectrum analysis. The theory behind analysis without gaps will be presented and the types of… (More)
