Today's satellite communication systems require a more sophisticated approach to wideband signal and interference monitoring. You need a test solution with the widest analysis bandwidth and highest frequency range to characterize the performance of your satellite designs.
Finally, you can monitor up to 2 GHz of real-time spectrum anlaysis (RTSA) bandwidth with the new RTSA application software on the N9042B UXA X-Series signal analyzer.
The N9042B UXA and the M9384C VXG signal generator deliver 4 GHz of corrected bandwidth for analysis and generation. The UXA also provides the highest unbanded, preselected frequency range to help you characterize your most sophisticated satellite designs.
Testing 5G components and devices per the 3GPP 5G New Radio (5G NR) standard Releases 15 and 16 requires a solution with higher accuracy, sensitivity, and bandwidth capability.
The N9042B signal analyzer will help you test the true performance of your transmitter designs with the industry's best residual error vector magnitude (EVM) and 5G NR signal analysis software suite to perform transmitter downlink and uplink measurements with one-button simplicity.
Introducing New Wideband Applications
Real-time spectrum analysis (RTSA) allows conducting continuous capture and analysis of elusive signals
Group delay is the measure of the phase distortion with respect to the frequency after passing through a device
Cross-correlated EVM (ccEVM) cancels the uncorrelated noise in your test system to compute the true EVM of your DUT
Optical data interface (ODI) streaming allows customers to perform hours of wide bandwidth signal recording
Option ST1: 1 GHz BW corrected IQ streaming
Option ST2: 2 GHz BW corrected IQ streaming
The Idea of Digital Twin
Digit twins are virtual replicas of physical systems continually updated with their performance and maintenance information.
In an RF digital twin setup, Keysight N9042B UXA X-Series signal analyzers provide an efficient way of creating and enhancing component behavioral models. The Keysight PathWave Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) handles modulation and provides demodulation and error vector measurements of signals, as well as capabilities in carrier aggregation, higher-order MIMO, and constellation signal quality analysis. By connecting directly with PathWave System Design, guesswork and estimation are eliminated, while model fidelity is increased. Keysight measurement science continues to evolve as specifications change.
