Abstract : The patent relates to resolution level selection in a spectrum analyzer. This is provided by digitizing the IF analog input signal at a controllable rate, storing it in a digital memory device, and reading out the stored digital signal at an increased rate into a digital-to-analog converter. The resolution level is determined by the relationship between the digitizing rate and the memory read out rate.
