- PXI Reference Solution offers flexible, modular system for rapid upgradability
- Supports traditional analog, digital radio standard, plus next-generation requirement such as LTE
- Up to 160 MHz signal generation and analysis bandwidth
SANTA ROSA, Calif., Jan. 27, 2016
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced the industry's first PXI open radio test reference solution and a radio test audio library for military and public safety radios. The Keysight Reference Solution enables engineers to quickly evaluate and integrate core radio test measurement capabilities into validation, production or depot test systems.
Designers and manufacturers of new radio equipment face the challenge of combining new technologies – multiple channels and wider bandwidths – with legacy standards that need to be supported over long periods of time. The radio test reference solution provides flexibility, modularity and upgradability to allow new features and increased performance to be added without changing the entire test system.
"The radio test reference solution is part of our ongoing effort to provide hardware and software configurations for specific test applications," said Mario Narduzzi, marketing manager of Keysight's Communications Measurement Solutions Group. "This solution combines flexible and upgradable test system architectures with examples to help our customers rapidly evaluate and integrate solutions for both analog and digital radios."
In addition to traditional analog and digital radio standards, the reference solution supports standards-based signal creation and analysis for modern communications standards. This includes LTE for next generation public safety radios, which provides wider data bandwidth. It also generates and analyzes custom waveforms, and supports advanced capabilities such as spurious emission measurements up to 27 GHz.
Hardware options range from the affordable M9290A CXA-m signal analyzer to the high performance M9393A performance vector signal analyzer. Software options include Keysight's X-Series measurement applications, supporting a common set of standard measurements for AM, FM and digital radio, such as APCO P25 and TETRA signals. The M9560A radio test audio library accelerates audio signal generation and analysis.
U.S. Pricing and Availability
The Keysight M9560A Radio Test Audio Library with option 1TP is available now and priced at $4,000. Pricing for the Radio Test Reference Solution is based on a customer's specific test system requirements. Contact Keysight at www.keysight.com/find/contactus for more information.
