Key Features & Specifications

Signal analysis

  • DVB-T, DVB-H, and DVB-T2 (Version 1.1.1, 1.2.1, and 1.3.1) standards; DVB-T2 option supports Mode A (single PLP) and Mode B (multi-PLP), SISO and MISO, and DVB-T2-Lite measurements
  • Transmitter, modulator, gap-filler or SFN network RF measurement, analog baseband measurements with PXA BBIQ or MXA BBIQ hardware
  • One-button measurements with pass/fail per the standard, plus auto detection
  • Runs inside PXA, MXA, and EXA signal analyzers


  • Power measurement: channel power, shoulder attenuation, ACP, CCDF, spurious emission, SEM
  • Modulation accuracy measurement: constellation, TPS decoding (DVB-T), L1-signaling (DVB-T2), MER/EVM (MER RMS/peak, MER by subcarriers, MER by data, and pilot), BER, frequency error, amplitude error, phase error, phase jitter, quadrature error, amplitude imbalance, carrier suppression, MER monitoring
  • Channel frequency response and channel impulse response (supports SFN test for pre-, post-, 0 dB, and out-of-GI range echo scenarios)
  • Auto-detection or manual settings of the DVB-T, DVB-H, DVB-T2, or DVB-T2-Lite signal; provides advanced settings such as equalization switch, payload type, demodulation symbols, out-of-band filtering, clock rate, and BER count

Performance (hardware dependent)

  • Power accuracy: up to ±0.19 dB (95th percentile)
  • Shoulder attenuation dynamic range: up to 97.8 dB (102.8 dB typical)
  • MER floor: up to 50 dB (2K mode and 64QAM with EQ off for DVB-T); up to 51 dB (32K mode, 256 QAM, Constellation rotation Yes with EQ Off for DVB-T2)
  • Analysis bandwidth: PXA/MXA up to 160 MHz; EXA up to 40 MHz (Options PC4 and DP2 are recommended to improve DVB-T2 modulation accuracy measurement speed)

Other features

  • License key upgradeable
  • Fixed and transportable license available
  • SCPI remote user interface


The digital video broadcasting-terrestrial/handheld (DVB-T/H) application is one of more than 25 measurement applications in the Keysight X-Series, an evolutionary approach to signal analysis that spans instrumentation, measurements and software, transforming the X-Series signal analyzers into standards-based transmitter testers. The DVB-T/H application provides one-button, standard-based power and modulation analysis capabilities to help design, evaluate and manufacture DVB-T/H modulators, transmitters and related components. DVB-T2, an extension of DVB-T standards, provides: a minimum of 30% increased capacity, improved single-frequency-network (SFN) performance, service-specific robustness, better error correction, and bandwidth and frequency flexibility.

RF transmitters, modulators, and components testing

  • One-button measurement helps improve speed with standard presets and auto detection
  • Multiple modulation quality measurements help test the DUT’s full performance
  • Advanced settings help R&D engineers with troubleshooting
  • Remote SCPI commands increase manufacturing test efficiency
