    89600 Vector Signal Analysis Software

    Agilent Technologies

    Agilent says that its 89600 VSA software plays a key role in the communications and wireless networking revolutions by providing analysis tools for the PHY layer that are crucial to the development of base stations, access points, and mobile units. Since its introduction in 2000, the software has had 29 updates, including support for cdma2000, W-CDMA, WiMAX, and LTE.

    Agilent 1813According to Agilent, the software is the first PC-based signal-analysis software, the first software to make measurements with more than one signal-analyzer platform, the first software to perform wideband vector signal analysis up to 36 MHz, and the first software to analyze over 70 signal formats. VSA analyzes signals acquired by signal, spectrum, and logic analyzers and oscilloscopes, and it can measure signals anywhere in the radio block diagram. The software analyzes narrowband AM as easily as ultrawideband multiband-OFDM and also analyzes modulated signals ranging from tens of megahertz to hundreds of terahertz.
