The 89600 VSA software is your window into what’s happening inside complex wireless devices. Option BHB offers advanced measurement tools to analyze and troubleshoot the complex wide-bandwidth, and time-varying nature of uWB (MB-OFDM) PHY layer signals.

  • Extensive vector features like time-gating, spectrogram displays, built-in ACPR and OBW capabilities
  • New time-scaling analysis capabilities for hopped and non-hopped signals 
  • Automatic detection for all Time Frequency Codes, including FFI (non-hopped), and TFI and TFI2 (hopped), for easy measurement setup 
  • Covers a wide range of formats, including QPSK and DCM modulation, using burst or standard preamble types
  • Wide selection of analysis tools, including EVM, CCDF, I/Q parameters, packet spectrum common pilot error, header info, and demodulated bits 

This option can be added as a product upgrade.
