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. To find out more about Agilent’s DOCSIS 3.1 test solution, download the application brief, Quickly Validate Designs for DOCSIS 3.1 Compliance.
Pricing for the M9099T Waveform Creator Software starts at $4,200. The new DOCSIS 3.1 plug-in is priced at $5,000.
