Agilent E4438C Option 404 Signal Studio for 1xEV-DO
Software A.02.01 through A.02.03 Release Descriptions

NOTE:  Features depend on installed hardware and software options in the
Agilent E4438C ESG vector signal generator.


The 1xEV-DO Signal Studio software for the E4438C ESG vector signal generator has three separate user interfaces: forward link, forward link factory test mode (FTM), and reverse link.  These three interfaces may be revised at different times, so the software revisions may have different release dates for the different interfaces.

Software A.02.02

·        Factory Test Mode (FTM) Released June 12, 2003

·        Forward and Reverse Link Released August 21-23, 2002

Software A.02.01

·        Forward Link and Reverse Link Released December 3, 2001

·        Forward Link FTM Released April 4, 2002

Software A.02.03 Forward and Reverse Link

 

Software A.2.03 Forward and Reverse Link Enhancements

·        Added support for Options 601 and 602 internal baseband generators with digital bus capability.

·        Added the ability to upload encrypted waveforms from the signal generator.  This gives the user the ability to transfer a waveform from the signal generator to a computer and then download this waveform to a different signal generator.  Requires firmware C.03.30 or later.  

o       If the waveform was created with an optional signal creation application (i.e. Signal Studio or a waveform created within the ESG), the signal generator is required to have the license key (alpha-numeric code) for that particular option installed before playback of that waveform is allowed.

Software A.2.03 Reverse Link Enhancements

·        Added auto-coupling between the “Rel. Gain” and “Data Channel Data Rate” fields when the “Data Channel” is made active.

·        Changed the default “Filter Type” from “IS-95 Mod” to “IS-95 Std”.

·        Changed the “ALC active” default to on.

Software A.2.03 Reverse Link Issues Resolved

·        Fixed turbo puncturing issue on the Reverse link, which results in improved PER performance.
