As Mobile WiMAX moves toward a reality, engineers working on new radio designs must ensure that the modulation quality of the radio is sufficient for optimum RF performance and in accordance to industry standards. Mobile WiMAX with its Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) modulation packs a lot of data into a limited spectrum to support many users with different data requirements and levels of mobility. In Mobile WiMAX, the modulation schemes are rather complex compared to single carrier systems. Therefore designers need to have access to the right test and measurement equipment at the right time.

In the free whitepaper “Unraveling Modulation Quality in Mobile WiMAX™ Uplink and Downlink with Multiple Zones and Bursts” by Viswanathan Ganesan, WiMAX Application Engineer from Agilent Technologies, the author presents the complexities associated with digital demodulation of Mobile WiMAX uplink and downlink signals. It covers the modulation quality measurement required for Mobile WiMAX transmitters and provides a recommendation of the best tools to use for developing Mobile WiMAX products.
