Agilent Technologies Inc. announces a signal creation capability for mobile WiMAX and WiBro applications. Agilent N7615A Signal Studio for 802.16 OFDMA software creates waveforms that comply with the WirelessMAN-OFDMA physical layer in the IEEE 802.16-2004, 802.16-2004/Cor1/D2 or D3, and 802.16e/D9 standards. Its ability to create downlink or uplink subframes in TDD or FDD makes it suitable for engineers testing basestation and subscriber station equipment. R&D engineers working in baseband receiver test and system verification will find that the N7615A software provides the flexibility to quickly and easily configure waveforms for both component and receiver design verification and testing. The software's intuitive graphical user interface grants engineers convenient access to the physical and basic MAC layer parameters, including bandwidth, cyclic prefix ratio (G), sampling factor (n), Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) size (512, 1024 or 2048) and frame length. Using the software's frame setup parameters, engineers can generate high peak-to-average power ratio downlink or uplink signals to test transmission chain components, such as amplifiers.
