Stream waveforms from your computer hard drive at up to 20 MSa/s Selecting Option 120 for N5110A Baseband Studio for waveform streaming allows you to stream waveform data from your computer's hard drive (HDD) or hard drive array at rates up to 20 MSa/s, providing a modulation bandwidth of about 16 MHz. Coupled with an E4438C ESG or E8267C PSG vector signal generator, custom I/Q waveforms, limited in size only by the HDD storage capacity of your computer system, can be used to stimulate your device under test with realistic baseband and RF signal conditions.
To extend the hard drive waveform streaming bandwidth from 20 up to 40 MSa/s, refer to Option 121.
Typical applications Option 120 is recommended for simulating the complicated radio transmission schemes of today's increasingly complex communication systems. The ability to generate long time-records of a unique test signal enables a variety of new test possibilities, including extensive system signaling simulation early in the design cycle, receiver BER analysis of continuous PN sequences, and device evaluation with long signal recordings captured off the air.
How to upgrade If you currently own N5110A Baseband Studio for waveform streaming, it can be upgraded to include Option 120 by ordering N5110AK-120. Options 117 to 119 required.
