RTSA-Suite PRO File Format (IQ and SPECTRA) Documentation & Sample Files

Features and Purpose

The RTSA-Suite PRO file format for IQ and SPECTRA records is used to store files generated by the RTSA-Suite PRO.

The file format is binary and chunk based, similar to e.g. the PNG file format.

The file format offers the following distinguishing features:

• Binary, compact and optionally compressed storage of measurement data
• Meta data storage (location, time, format etc.)
• Multi streams
• Interleaving of streams
• Sequential stream read and write
• Random access of complete files
• Preview storage of power spectra and power histogram
• Extension of existing streams

Doc-PDF and a sample IQ and SPECTRA recording (CW signal at 2410MHz with 1MHz sample rate / 1024FFT) is attached
