FAQ 2014-03-25

What is the RF Test Blog?
RF engineers know that making good measurements is a challenge. The RF Test Blog was created as a resource for RF engineers to find ways to make better RF measurements.

FAQ 2013-12-17

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

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 can’t I view a help file downloaded from the Keysight website?
After downloading the file to your PC, open it from the location it was saved and a security warning appears. To view the help system, clear the checkmark from the "Always ask before opening this file" check box.

FAQ 2012-12-28

I’m using the N7609B with an X-series signal generator. Can I generate a real-time GNSS signal without being connected to Signal Studio?
Yes, if you are using a stored scenario file, but not if you are using continuous scenario generation mode.

FAQ 2012-11-21

How do I obtain the NMEA GGA message file of trajectory information in order to create a dynamic scenario for a moving GNSS receiver?
There are several ways to do this...

FAQ 2012-11-21

How much baseband generator memory is needed in the signal generator to use basic mode waveforms?
The amount of memory that is needed depends on how many waveform files you need to have in the instrument memory at one time.

FAQ 2012-11-21

What is the data content in the single satellite waveform files? Is it real navigation data?
The waveform files contain alternating 0s and 1s for the data. Real navigation data is not included since it is impossible for a receiver to calculate a location fix using only a single satellite signal.

FAQ 2012-11-21

Is there a way to transfer sets of waveforms to each signal generator without having to connect the N7609B software to each instrument?
Yes. All of the waveform files are available on your PC when you install the N7609B application; they are in the application SW folder

FAQ 2012-11-21

When simulating a signal that includes GLONASS and Galileo my receiver is reporting different satellite IDs than shown in the Signal Studio, why?
While GPS satellites are commonly identified by the pseudorandom codes (PRN) that they use, there is no industry standard yet for how to refer to the GLONASS or Galileo satellites.

FAQ 2012-11-21

How does the N7609B calculate the total output power in relation to the number of visible satellites during a scenario?
When you initially turn on the simulation, the Satellite Settings page will update the “Power” column to show the power of each satellite in dBm.

FAQ 2012-11-21

What is the maximum sampling rate for the GNSS waveforms?
The sampling rates vary depending on which constellation is being simulated, and they range from 2.044 MSa/s for GLONASS up to 24.552 MSa/s for Galileo.
