Keysight Introduces 10 PXIe Instruments to Advance Research in 5G and Aerospace & Defense

Keysight Technologies has introduced ten new PXIe instruments, including a new arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) that includes three highly synchronized channels for precise tuning of IQ waveforms and envelope tracking, as well as the industry's first full-featured PXI oscilloscope. The AWG and oscilloscopes provide up to 1 GHz of bandwidth to support complex baseband IQ signal generation and analysis for evaluating emerging 5G and aerospace/defense wideband technologies.
The new PXI offering includes AWGs and digitizers that allow engineers to build onto the instrument's core capabilities or insert custom algorithms into the on-board FPGAs. A graphical design environment makes it easy to add customization required for emerging technologies, research and design, while accessing the full performance and speed of the FPGA. The M3xxxA AWGs and digitizers use the FPGA and PXI reference clock to provide real-time sequencing and multi-channel/multi-module synchronization to support advanced multi-channel applications like multi-user beamforming technologies and quantum computing.

Ideal for creating digitally modulated waveforms for wideband communication systems and high resolution waveforms for radar and satellite test, the M9336A PXIe AWG includes multiple independent or synchronized signal outputs. The M9336A provides excellent performance in a single-slot PXIe module including 16-bit resolution, up to 1 GHz modulation bandwidth, and individual channel control of gain, offset and skew. Engineers can generate industry-standard and custom waveforms for the AWG by using Signal Studio, MATLAB, Waveform Creator or other tools and easily integrated into multiple application development environments.

The M9243A PXIe oscilloscope is built with Keysight's InfiniiVision oscilloscope technology, providing up to 1 GHz bandwidth for quick analysis and troubleshooting of wideband signals. With an update rate of 1,000,000 waveforms per second and advanced probing technology, the oscilloscope enables troubleshooting of random and intermittent signals not easily seen with digitizer technology. Powerful features include cursors and markers, advanced triggering, waveform averaging, masks and 31 selectable measurements. When the scope is combined with 89600 VSA software, engineers can demodulate and evaluate complex IQ waveforms with a full 1 GHz bandwidth.

Keysight's rapid repair turnaround, with industry-leading calibration, core exchange strategy and standard three-year warranty, maximizes system uptime to reduce the total cost of ownership.
