Noise-Figure, Analog-Demodulation Measurement Applications for Signal Analyzer

Keysight UXA28 August 2015 – Keysight announced the addition of its proven analog demodulation and noise figure measurement applications as software options to the UXA X-Series signal analyzer. Through the analyzer’s multi-touch user interface, the new software ensures intuitive and efficient operation for engineers creating advanced designs in aerospace, defense and wireless communications.

The N9063C analog demodulation measurement application utilizes the UXA’s industry-leading RF performance, including phase noise, to achieve exceptional accuracy in the demodulation of AM, FM, FM stereo and PM signals. One-button measurements calculate metrics such as AM depth, FM deviation, total harmonic distortion (THD) and signal-to-noise-and-distortion ratio (SINAD). Engineers can display tabular results alongside RF spectra, demodulated waveforms and more.

The N9069C noise figure measurement application offers unsurpassed measurement uncertainty, which is crucial to quantifying and reducing noise figure in leading-edge receivers and low-noise amplifiers. One-button measurements and touch-driven operation ensure superior ease-of-use when setting up measurements, performing the necessary calibrations, and characterizing noise figure and gain.

“By extending the UXA into these applications, we’re helping new groups of R&D engineers take their designs farther,” said Nana Amoa, product marketing manager of Keysight’s Microwave and Communications Division. “As we take the UXA forward, our goal is to help more developers accelerate the creation of mission-critical designs that meet the most stringent specifications.”

Both applications are 100-percent code compatible with the N9063A and N9069A measurement applications for the PXA, MXA and EXA X-Series signal analyzers. As a result, developers can use existing test-system software that accesses either application with a UXA configured with N9063C or N9069C.

Because the measurement applications are license-key enabled, users will experience minimal downtime when adding either one to an existing UXA.

The UXA is the industry-leading flagship of Keysight’s X-Series signal analyzers, leveraging proprietary technologies and a streamlined, touch-driven interface. By providing a wider, deeper view of elusive and wideband signals, the UXA enables developers to see more and take their designs farther.
