These videos were recorded while operating an Agilent VEE program, making use of the versatile connectivity of the P-series to control the power meter for real-time control.

PULSE / RADAR (NEW!!!)

With warranted performance that includes up to 40GHz frequency range, 100MSample/sec continuous sampling rate with 30MHz video bandwidth, and rise/fall time of less than or equal to 13ns, the P-Series covers most of today’s wireless communication and networking applications. This example is showing Pulse/Radar signal power measurement with P-Series Power Meter, where Pulse/Radar signals is generated from E4438C.

Signal Configuration (E4438C):

  • Frequency: 1GHz
  • Amplitude: 10dBm
  • Pulse Period: 80us
  • Pulse Width: 40us

The video covers:

  • Radar/DME preset
  • Auto scale
  • Auto gating
  • Perpetual setting
  • Maximum and minimum power measurement
  • Trace control menu
  • Zoomed view

802.11g WLAN

 

80211g spectrum

For this example, the signal was generated using Agilent’s Signal Studio for 802.11 WLAN software, enabling a calculated I/Q waveform file to be downloaded to the signal generator, in this case a ESG Vector Signal Generator (E4438C). The spectrum of the signal is shown in the graph below.

Signal Configuration:

  • Frequency of 2.412 GHz
  • Data rate of 54 Mbps
  • OFDM signal
  • PN9 data stream
  • Total data length 290 bytes
  • Amplitude 17dBm
  • 5 us idle interval

The video covers:

  • Gate control for variable burst lengths
  • 30 MHz bandwidth capable for many WLAN formats
