In N7625B, how many instances of carriers and carrier aggregations do the software support?
One connected signal generator can support one instance of Carrier Aggregation mode. One instance of Carrier Aggregation can support 5 component carriers.

FAQ 2016-07-08

Is it possible to adjust the phase offset using degrees instead of radians?
Yes. Select View -> Customize Pattern Item Table and toggle the ‘phase offset in degrees’ button

FAQ 2013-05-16

How much jitter is there when using an external trigger?
Unless the trigger signal is synchronized to the Arb sample clock, you will see jitter equal to the sample period for the internal Arb and equal to 8 sample periods for the N6030A.

FAQ 2012-12-30

What is the data content in the single satellite waveform files? Is it real navigation data?
The waveform files contain alternating 0s and 1s for the data. Real navigation data is not included since it is impossible for a receiver to calculate a location fix using only a single satellite signal.

FAQ 2012-11-21

I’m using the N7609B with an X-series signal generator. Can I generate a real-time GNSS signal without being connected to Signal Studio?
Yes, if you are using a stored scenario file, but not if you are using continuous scenario generation mode.

FAQ 2012-11-21

What is the maximum sampling rate for the GNSS waveforms?
The sampling rates vary depending on which constellation is being simulated, and they range from 2.044 MSa/s for GLONASS up to 24.552 MSa/s for Galileo.

FAQ 2012-11-21

Is there a way to transfer sets of waveforms to each signal generator without having to connect the N7609B software to each instrument?
Yes. All of the waveform files are available on your PC when you install the N7609B application; they are in the application SW folder

FAQ 2012-11-21

How do I obtain the NMEA GGA message file of trajectory information in order to create a dynamic scenario for a moving GNSS receiver?
There are several ways to do this...

FAQ 2012-11-21

How does the N7609B calculate the total output power in relation to the number of visible satellites during a scenario?
When you initially turn on the simulation, the Satellite Settings page will update the “Power” column to show the power of each satellite in dBm.

FAQ 2012-11-21

How much baseband generator memory is needed in the signal generator to use basic mode waveforms?
The amount of memory that is needed depends on how many waveform files you need to have in the instrument memory at one time.

FAQ 2012-11-21

When simulating a signal that includes GLONASS and Galileo my receiver is reporting different satellite IDs than shown in the Signal Studio, why?
While GPS satellites are commonly identified by the pseudorandom codes (PRN) that they use, there is no industry standard yet for how to refer to the GLONASS or Galileo satellites.

FAQ 2012-11-21

How can I de-embed a test fixture using the 86100C/D Digital Communications Analyzer?
N1010A software with InfiniiSIM-DCA option provides the capability to de-embed and embed fixtures, cables, probes, and other circuit elements.

FAQ 2012-09-25

Can or will the N9081A and W9081A support Bluetooth® 4.0?
Yes, the N9081A and W9081A support the low energy measurements enabled by Bluetooth 4.

FAQ 2012-03-02

Why is the peak power for Transmit Analysis 3.78 dBm, but with Zero span it is 3.66 dBm?
It is measured in the IQ domain, not in power domain, so there is no VBW function. The most important factor is the bucket width.

FAQ 2012-01-10

Can the Keysight X-Series signal analyzer with N9081A Bluetooth® measurement application measure Bluetooth hopping signals?
The short answer for this question is “no”. Fundamentally, frequency hopping is needed for testing the functional capability of the Bluetooth device.

FAQ 2012-01-10

Why does the Bluetooth® ACP measurement take 15 minutes to complete?
The time needed for the ACP measurement is due to the requirements of the Bluetooth-test specification.

FAQ 2012-01-10

Can I measure a dual conversion mixer on the ENA?
If the LO frequencies are fixed, dual conversion mixers can be measured with option 008 (Frequency-Offset Mode).

FAQ 2011-10-17

Can the ENA perform Vector Mixer Calibration (VMC) with Fixed RF or Fixed IF measurement?
No. It is not possible to perform Fixed RF measurements (RF: Fixed, LO and IF: Swept) with VMC.

FAQ 2011-10-17

Can the ENA make mixer measurements?
Yes. With option 008 (Frequency-Offset Mode), you can measure frequency-converting devices, such as mixers.

FAQ 2011-10-16

On mixer measurement with the ENA and external signal source, should I connect frequency references of the ENA and external signal source?

FAQ 2011-10-16

Is it possible to make a vector measurement of a balanced-mixer using ENA?

FAQ 2009-06-08

With the Vector Mixer Calibration (VMC) technique, is it possible to characterize mixers below the lowest operating frequency of the ENA?
