Analyzing and demodulating Wi-Fi 7 signals to meet compliance tests

Analyzing quality of Wi-Fi 7 signals involves capturing the candidate signal and importing it into signal analysis software. Once the signal is captured, analysis software measures signal power, assess bandwidth utilization, carrier frequency operations, error vector magnitude (EVM), and also analyze coexistence with legacy 802.11 signals.

To meet compliance tests requirements, higher performance signal analyzers with lower EVM floors and more powerful demodulation and analysis software are needed. Vector signal analysis software running directly on your instrument speeds test and provides accurate results with a single piece of hardware. Both PC or direct instrument software can be used to capture, record, and save signal data to help investigate compliance issues.

Wi-Fi 7 signal analysis solution

Analyzing Wi-Fi 7 signal performance and standards compliance requires a high performance signal analyzer and 802.11be Wi-Fi 7 signal analysis software. Use a Keysight UXA signal analyzer and PathWave Vector Signal Analysis (VSA) software to characterize Wi-Fi 7 signals. It demodulates over 40 Wi-Fi modulation schemes including PSK, QPSK, and QAM, and provides flex frame modulation analysis to identify each segment for synchronization, channel estimation, and EVM calculation. Keysight VSA software also offers record and playback features for troubleshooting and further analysis.
