Generate and analyze 802.11ad fully-coded PHY waveforms for complete component, subsystem, and system performance at baseband, IF, and mmWave. The base test equipment configuration supports frequencies up to 44 GHz for testing with a wide range of IFs. 60-GHz V-Band frequencies can be generated and analyzed with different upconverters and downconverters depending on application and performance requirements.


  • Generate and analyze fully-coded 802.11ad waveforms with flexible parameter configuration
  • Pre-correct waveforms for I/Q imbalances and overall channel response
  • Supports many topologies for transmitter/receiver testing (IQ, IF, RF, microwave, mmWave)
  • Independent reference to debug and validate hardware performance


  • RF modulation bandwidths up to 2 GHz
  • Frequency bands between 100 kHz and 44 GHz with base instruments
  • Frequency bands between 55 and 90 GHz with extended mmWave configurations

Measurement applications and software

  • 81199A Wideband Waveform Center software creates and analyzes 802.11ad waveforms
  • SystemVue W1461BP Communications Architect and W1915EP MM-Wave WPAN Baseband Verification Library for early simulation of component and system-level performance
  • 89600 VSA software to demodulate custom IQ and custom OFDM waveforms
