Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the M9099 Waveform Creator 2.0, providing new capabilities for engineers working on the development of radars, satellite communications, military radios and the next generation of DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems.
Release 2.0 of Agilent’s Waveform Creator software provides new waveform segment types that are easily combined into multiple tracks and can be aggregated into one composite waveform.
The software enables R&D and manufacturing test engineers to build or import a variety of signals; mix them together; and add IQ impairments and noise to simulate real-world environments. The complex composite waveforms are easily created using the software’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface – very similar to today’s popular audio and video editing tools.
Engineers can use the resulting waveforms with a wide variety of Agilent vector signal and arbitrary waveform generators, including the M9381A PXIe VSG. The Waveform Creator 2.0 software release also supports the M8190A, M9330A/M9331A and 81180A/81180B arbitrary waveform generators. The software will support additional waveform types and instruments in the future.
Release 2.0 of the Waveform Creator software includes:
- a 89600 VSA software recording plug-in;
- the DOCSIS 3.1 modulation plug-in;
- AM/FM/PM modulation capability;
- a spectral display; and
- output plug-ins for easy control of complex instrumentation.
89600 VSA Software Recording Plug-in
The 89600 VSA software recording plug-in enables the capture of signals measured with 89600 VSA software and combines them with other custom waveform segments. This capability is ideal for capturing an unknown signal in a complex RF environment, such as a large city. Engineers can playback the real-world signals at a later time and incorporate them into composite waveforms.
DOCSIS 3.1 Modulation Plug-in
The DOCSIS 3.1 modulation plug-in provides the simplest and most comprehensive waveform creation tool for upstream and downstream signals, in compliance with the latest DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem standards. 89600 VSA setup files can be created automatically to easily demodulate and analyze signals for DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem design and test.

Pricing for the M9099T Waveform Creator Software starts at $4,200. The new DOCSIS 3.1 plug-in is priced at $5,000.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
