N9030A PXA Signal Analyzer Questions

Good day,

I am currently working with Keysight's N9030A PXA Signal Analyzer and have a few questions. Currently, our research involves attempting to analyze pulsed signals in the Ku Band and applying signal processing via an FPGA. We have an RF-front end that is capable of down-converting the signal to the MHz range but a few questions arise:

1) Does the PXA Signal Analyzer have capabilities to further down convert the signal to DC (0 Hz)? If so, is there a tutorial available that can explain exactly how to configure the analyzer to do this? 

2) We would like to output the captured pulse on the PXA to an FPGA for processing via digital means. Is it possible to do this? Maybe through USB? Ethernet? How would we set up the analyzer? 

Thank you, respectfully,
