Hi -

Here is a YouTube video - Optimize Sensitivity When Measuring Low-level Signals.

(No audio) Agilent X-Series digital signal analyzers can be used to measure very low power signals. There are several instrument settings which can be adjusted to increase the sensitivity of a measurement. This video displays several of the most common ways to increase measurement sensitivity. By making these adjustments, we drop our noise floor by 25dB and uncover hidden details of a low-level pulsed signal.
