Notes:

  1. DVB-T2 supports both Mode A (Single PLP) and Mode B (Multi PLP). Multi PLP supports up to 16 PLPs.
  2. DVB-T2 supports both SISO and MISO signal creation. MISO is supported with N5106A PXB.
  3. Both waveform playback and real-time modes of N7623B signal studio for digital video support the static multi-paths, typically used for Single Frequency Network test (SFN test).
  4. If more complicated multi-path simulation or fading simulation is needed, N5106A PXB is recommended with max. 24 paths per fader.
