Can I turn off the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator predistortion from the N7620B Signal Studio for Pulse Building to get more power?
No. The N7620B software does not allow the N6030A predistortion to be turned off.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Does the Signal Studio for Pulse Building software run on a National Instruments embedded PXI controller like the one that comes with the N6030A?
Yes, it does. However, the Keysight I/O Libraries may need to be installed as a secondary VISA and then the NI Tulip DLL may need to be enabled.

FAQ 2012-12-30

When would I use ALC Hold?
ALC Hold is used for pulses with rise and fall times greater than 100 ns. It is used with pulses that do not have constant envelope modulation (such as AM Step), and with multiple pulses where the pulses have different amplitudes.

FAQ 2012-12-30

How much jitter is there when using an external trigger?
Unless the trigger signal is synchronized to the Arb sample clock, you will see jitter equal to the sample period for the internal Arb and equal to 8 sample periods for the N6030A.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Is there an easy way to save a pulse pattern and send it to another person?
Yes, simply save the entire .pbp or you can export the pattern using the “export pattern” function.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Is there a way to simulate jitter in my pulse pattern?
Yes, Signal Studio for pulse building allows you to add jitter on the pulse width and pulse repetition interval.

FAQ 2012-12-30

What is a 30-day free trial license and how does it work?
The 30-day free trial period allows the user to try out our latest Signal Studio software products prior to purchase.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Why does my ESG report errors when I try to download waveforms using a National Instruments GPIB card with certain Signal Studio applications?
If errors reported by the ESG include “ -113 undefined header” and “-101 invalid character”, you need to download and install a patch for the Keysight IO Libraries.

FAQ 2012-12-30

How do I enable the free 30-day trial license?
To obtain a trial license for Signal Studio B models (e.g. N7615B), download the Signal Studio software and visit the Keysight Software Licensing trial license request page for that model.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Should the N7620B Signal Studio for Pulse Building software always use the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator built-in predistortion function?
Yes, the N6030A predistortion function works very well and should always be used.

FAQ 2012-12-28

How many measurements do I need to make and how long is the predistortion data good?
The number of measurements needed depends on the number of parameters that are changed. The calibration (measurement data) could be valid for two days or longer.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Why do I want to mirror the spectrum?
Mirror Spectrum reverses the spectrum of the waveform when it is downloaded. This is useful for systems with external upconversion and downconversion where the signal spectrum is mirrored by the conversion process.

FAQ 2012-12-28

How many coefficients should I use for custom FM?
The number of coefficients to use depends on the type of custom FM signal desired. Signal Studio for Pulse Building includes examples where 19 coefficients were used. The software allows as many coefficients as desired. The more coefficients used,...

FAQ 2012-12-28

What is the internal Arb trigger delay jitter?
The internal Arb trigger delay is generated using a free running oscillator.

FAQ 2012-12-28

After the 30-day trial license is activated, can I suspend the trial period for future use?
No, the trial license is valid for 30 consecutive days, after which, you will have to purchase a permanent license to continue using the software.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What is the performance difference between the N8212A module with Option 016 and the N8241A arbitrary waveform generator synthetic instrument module?
The N8212A with Option 016 is based on the E8267D PSG signal generator with Option 016; the N8241A is based on the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What happens when I turn the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator off?
You will probably need to reboot PC if you are using an MXI to PXI interface. All signal data is lost.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Do corrections work with frequency and amplitude offsets?
Yes, however, the amplitude flatness accuracy is set by the spectrum analyzer flatness accuracy across the signal bandwidth...

FAQ 2012-12-28

If I purchased a license for one signal generator, is that license transferable between signal generators?
Yes, transportable licenses are now available under the new Keysight licensing model.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What are the details related to using the N6030xA/M933xA and N824xA arbitrary waveform generator predistortion?
The built-in predistortion scales the data to guarantee that you never get a DAC over-range condition. Typically, it gives up 2-3 dB of range. This is important because less power out of the N6030A means less leveled output power from the PSG with...

FAQ 2012-12-28

How can I get 1 GHz modulation bandwidth below 3.2 GHz?
There is a special option that down converts the wideband signal. It is: E8267D Option H1S PSG with 1 GHz out for use by the Z5623AK92 down converter, 500 MHz – 3.2 GHz.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Can multiple software applications communicate with a single N6030A arbitrary waveform generator at the same time?
Only one software application can communicate with the N6030A at a time.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Can I renew or extend the 30-day trial license after expiration?
After the trial license expires on an instrument, it cannot be renewed or extended.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Why should I use Amplitude Offset?
Use the Amplitude Offset feature to account for any external gain or loss that is greater than 10 dB.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What system configurations support ALC Hold?
Systems using the Internal Arb, Systems configured with the PSG and Option 016 and systems composed of the synthetic upconverter, N8212A...
