Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the M9099 Waveform Creator, a modular software application that supports analog and digital modulation formats, for the Agilent M9381A PXIe Vector Signal Generator.
The new software provides a simple, open and expandable environment that increases productivity and speeds time to deployment through superior connectivity with design and modelling software.
M9099 Waveform Creator is the latest addition to Agilent’s growing lineup of modular PXI and AXIe products. It was specifically designed to support customers who need to create and manage the assembly of custom waveforms for developing and testing defense electronics, military radios, and next-generation wireless communication devices.
Agilent’s SystemVue software (a focused design automation environment for electronic system-level design) and its 89600 VSA software (a comprehensive set of tools for signal demodulation and vector signal analysis) work together in the M9099 Waveform Creator environment.
Waveform Creator can create individual segments using available waveform plug-ins or user-created plug-ins. Assembling a signal is a matter of dragging and dropping waveform segments into tracks and modifying the segment attributes with user-definable parameters. Noise, IQ impairments and precorrections can be customized for the aggregated waveform as needed. Finally the signal is downloaded to the M9381A PXI VSG or a waveform file. During each step Waveform Creator automatically recalculates the final waveform and displays the result prior to download.
A free 30-day Waveform Creator trial license is available for download at www.agilent.com/find/M9099.
