The Tracking Generator Plugin makes it possible for TAP users with no programming knowledge to use the tracking generator capabilities of the M8920A PXIe Radio Test Set hardware.


Create and Customize Tracking Generator Test Sequence

  • Use Keysight Tracking Generator Test Automation on PathWave Test (TAP) software plugins to build test sequences to characterize and evaluate the performance and integrity of your DUT RF cables and characterize RF paths through your test fixture
  • Sweep cables to determine cable loss for proper characterization to ensure accurate power measurements
  • Sweep filters to ensure they are operating as expected to pass or reject RF energy
  • Tracking generator TAP software plugin is future ready and easy to scale to support MilCom/LMR radios with the M8920A PXIe Radio Test Set
  • Radio Test Automation on PathWave (TAP) plugins test reports and measurement results are automatically stored to any connected TAP Result Listener

Simple Development Workflow

  • Seamless test automation without knowing specific SCPI commands
  • No programming experience required

Supported Hardware

  • Keysight M8920A PXIe Radio Test Set

Flexible Software Licensing
