Tektronix, Inc. announces an oscilloscope software application for validating all types of UWB devices from new generations of secure communications to consumer electronics. Known as TDSUWB, the software utility extends the debug and analysis capabilities of the Tektronix TDS6000C Series to include real-time analysis of Ultra Wideband RF and electrical signals. Due to the infancy of the marketplace, performance and interoperability debugging and regulatory compliance measurements for UWB transmissions are often difficult and time-consuming. TDSUWB assists the design and debug of UWB signals in real-time for defense electronics, industrial, consumer, and computer applications. Extensions for the WiMedia Alliances’ UWB Common Radio Platform offer single-button tests such as automatic bandgroup detection (patent pending) and Power Spectral Density (PSD) mask tests. The software is available as TDSUWB and TDSUWB+WiMedia. TDSUWB adds wideband spectral analysis capabilities to the TDS6000C oscilloscopes for evaluating and debugging UWB communications and radar in real time. Analyzing changes in frequency with time is also applicable to a wide variety of electrical and optical signals. The software utility is available for a limited time at no cost.
