Create Complex Single Emitter Pulse Patterns
Option 420 is software that enables flexible generation of complex pulse patterns using the PSG vector signal generator. It provides a simple interface to construct and import custom pulse envelopes, apply intra-pulse modulation, and create sophisticated single emitter test patterns for radar receiver test. The built-in COM-based application programming interface (API) supports advanced test pattern creation through your own test executive. Using the API, pulse and pattern parameters are efficiently modified on a pulse-by-pulse basis using custom mathematical models and data sets. Signal Studio for pulse building utilizes an advanced predistortion algorithm to enhance the signal quality of the test stimulus directly at the input of the device under test.
Evaluate the User Interface
Download Signal Studio to a PC to review the user interface and investigate the pulse building and pattern creation capabilities prior to purchase. Each E8267D PSG vector signal generator must be licensed separately in order to generate the signals created by the software. To apply the predistortion algorithm, a PSA or ESA Series spectrum analyzer is also required.
Signal Studio for pulse building is recommended for radar receiver test using complex single-emitter pulse patterns. Common applications include radar receiver sensitivity and selectivity measurements, analyzing receiver demodulation quality, and verifying identification friend or foe (IFF) algorithms. The software's flexible pulse generation capability enables the simulation of realistic signaling environments commonly encountered by radar receivers.
This option cannot be added as a product upgrade – only available at time of purchase.
