Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced eight new measurement applications for its PXA X-Series signal analyzer. The measurement applications cover a range of industry standards in cellular communication, wireless networking, digital video and other general purpose applications.

In addition, three new measurement applications have been added to Agilent’s MXA and EXA signal analyzers portfolio, and the LTE FDD, LTE TDD and EDGE Evolution applications have been updated.

The new measurement applications are used in R&D, design validation and production to ease the burden of 1) physical layer testing for 3G/3.5G/3.9G cellular, wireless and digital video applications, and 2) RF testing for general-purpose applications. The new X-Series applications for the PXA include: wireless networking applications, including 802.16 OFDMA and Bluetooth®. The new N9081A Bluetooth measurement application (also new for MXA/EXA) is compliant with Bluetooth core specification version 2.1+ EDR and Low Energy (LE), making the X-Series the only signal analyzers to offer Bluetooth LE support; cellular applications, including GSM/EDGE/EDGE Evolution and TD-SCDMA; digital video applications, including DTMB and CMMB; and general-purpose applications, including analog demodulation and SCPI remote language compatibility. The N9062A SCPI remote language compatibility measurement application allows the PXA, MXA and EXA signal analyzers to emulate Rohde & Schwarz FSP, FSU and FSE spectrum analyzers in remotely- controlled, automated test equipment systems.
