Signal Analyzer Includes 160 MHz Bandwidth Option
Tue, 09/20/2011 - 10:57am
Agilent Technologies introduced two solutions for analysis and generation of wide bandwidth signals. The solutions include what is believed to be the industry’s first 160-MHz analysis bandwidth option for the high-performance PXA signal analyzer and Signal Studio software for 802.11ac signal creation. Agilent’s PXA signal analyzer with 160-MHz bandwidth helps provide valuable insight that helps speed the design, verification and troubleshooting of current and future 802.11ac devices. Moreover, when combined with the 89600 VSA software’s 802.11ac modulation analysis, the PXA enables high-performance, comprehensive analysis of 802.11ac signals. Agilent’s Signal Studio for WLAN software enables the creation of 802.11ac waveforms with BCC or LDPC channel coding, all MCS codes, and single- or multi-user MIMO up to four streams. Generation of up to 80-MHz bandwidth signals are supported with the company’s ESG, MXG or PSG vector signal generators and the PXB baseband generator and channel emulator; 160-MHz bandwidth signal generation is possible with support from two Agilent vector signal generators.
