- Overview and Features
- Post-Purchase Upgrades
- Easily create just about any waveform you can imagine. Graphical, intuitive drag & drop user interface. Multiple waveform segments can be easily combined into multiple tracks, then aggregated into one composite output waveform.
- Import Keysight Signal Studio waveforms (.wfm files) into your Waveform Creator projects.
- IQ impairments and noise can be added to simulate real-world environments. Smoothing filters minimize spectral impurities that can result from discontinuities between combined waveform segments.
- Composite output waveform can be previewed in both time and frequency domains before being output to your vector signal generator, arbitrary waveform generator, or a file.
- 89600 VSA Recording Plug-in enables you to capture real-world signals measured with the 89600 VSA and combine them with other custom data segments, perfect for capturing an unknown signal or complex RF environment for later playback
- General Purpose Multitone Plug-in creates single, two-tone and multi-tone waveforms, including AM/FM/PM modulation, with configurable baseband filtering. Basic Utility Plug-in to adds blanking (silent time), square waves and/or Gaussian noise to your waveforms.
- DOCSIS 3.1 Modulation Plug-in (Opt DCS) provides both upstream and downstream waveforms that comply with DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem standards up to 16384-QAM, along with 89600 VSA setup files to easily demodulate and analyze these signals.
- Other Input Plug-ins include: Digital Modulation Plug-in (Opt AYA) to create basic and advanced digital formats similar to Keysight’s 89600 VSA software option AYA; SystemVue Plug-in (Opt SVM) enables import of waveforms created using Keysight’s SystemVue software; and User-Defined Plug-in enables you to build your own custom waveforms
- Aggregated waveforms can be output directly to a variety of signal and arbitrary waveform generators, or various file formats
- M9381A PXI Vector Signal Generator, M8190A, M9330/31, 81180A/B Arbitrary Waveform Generators, including support for streaming, added in v3.0: N5172B EXG, N5182A/B MXG, E4438C ESG, M8195A AWG, M8241A/42A AWG
- Unencrypted File Write (Opt DFW) enables output of unencrypted M9381A, CSV, MAT, BIN, and WFM files
- License key upgradeable options
- Transportable software license
- Premium software support and knowledge base subscriptions ensure access to future updates, training materials and dedicated support resources
The M9099 Waveform Creator is a modular software application focused on easy development of complex baseband and vector signals used in the validation and test of digital communications products. Built around a “drag and drop” graphical user interface, Waveform Creator allows quick development of multi-format, multi-track waveforms with waveform segments displaced in frequency and time. Its modularity supports multiple waveform types and VSG/AWG instruments to be “plugged in”, supporting expansion to include both current & future waveform types and instruments.
