RF Test Instruments Add FM/ZigBee Analysis

Dubbed PXI 3030 Option 111, the Generic Measurement Suite of software for PXI 3000 modular RF test systems enables a variety of generic analyses of analog and digital modulated signals. The initial release supports broadcast FM signals as well as PSK modulation types including BPSK, QPSK, and OQPSK as used by ZigBee devices. Future software releases will expand upon this capability. Supported measurements include modulation accuracy, adjacent channel power, occupied bandwidth, and spectrum mask measurements for continuous or burst signals. New capabilities include broadcast FM deviation accuracy measurements for mono or stereo signals and associated analysis of demodulated audio for SNR, SINAD, THD, and stereo isolation measurements.
