Four-Channel ARB Simplifies Multi-Receiver Testing

Promising easy commercial and military multi-receiver testing, the 4CH-VSG2000 four-channel arbitrary waveform generator (ARB) fits in a 2U rack-mount enclosure and combines four independently-programmable arbitrary waveform vector signal generators (VSGs), each with dedicated removable 1-Tbyte solid-state drives for waveform storage. Waveform playback contains any number of waveform segments in any order that together form the output stream. The instrument can accept waveforms based on commercial wireless standards, custom waveforms used in defense systems, or any user-defined waveform sequence, recorded over the air or created in tools such as MATLAB, RFXpress from Tektronix, or X-COM’s WaveCAFE software.
