X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies, has introduced Version 3.0 of its RF Editor graphical signal editing software. The new release includes significant new features and enhancements that make the software an even more powerful tool as well as easier and faster to use.
RF Editor is the only commercially-available software that offers comprehensive editing capability for waveforms and waveform segments that have been captured over the air, offloaded from a signal analyzer, or created in programs such as MATLAB. It allows users to easily manipulate I&Q data files for RF signals of any length. Its operation is very similar to digital audio editing tools. It provides the ability to mix, trim, cut, join, repeat, and splice RF files using multiple tracks that align to create virtually any type of RF signal with high precision.
The software also allows filters and frequency shifts to be applied and interferers and noise to be introduced to create test scenarios ranging from ideal to worst-case. It is an invaluable tool for modifying and building signal waveforms in the time and frequency domains, and is integrated with X-COM's Spectro-X signal analysis software. Typical applications for RF Editor include creating simulated signal threat scenarios and laboratory, production and field testing of communications, EW, and radar systems, using custom stimulus signals.
Some of the new features in RF Editor 3.0 include:
RF Editor 3.0 is available immediately from X-COM Systems and a trial version is available on the company’s Web site, www.xcomsystems.com.
