The following are questions presented to the speaker by the attendees during the webinar, along with answers to each.

Talk about near and far field emission correlations
Answer: Correlation is one of the most difficult aspects of radiated pre-compliance. There are some nice reference documents that discuss the topic on the internet. A good rule is to use the far field data to find the problem frequencies and then use the near field data over similar frequency ranges to help isolate the root cause of the EMI.

Does your company sells the units directly to any customer or is a vendor required for the customer?
Answer: In North America, we have direct sales as well as distribution. To find out how to purchase Rigol products in your region, you can find geographic distribution here.

May the customer be from any part of the world or there is any restriction to sell the units to any country?
Answer: The local distributor or Rigol office will be able to provide sales information for products that are available for sale in your geography.

Here is a link to the distributors.

Does RIGOL manufacture real time spectrum analyzers also?
Answer: Not at this time. The DSA800 and DSA1000 series designs are swept superheterodyne.

Does Rigol’s software offer a DPX Spectrum feature that shows regularity of sporadic signals as different colors (similar to how the waterfall shows amplitude as colors)?
Answer: Not at this time. We are continually improving and enhancing our product line and will be sure to pass on your comments to our design team.
