How do I change the 10 MHz reference source if Signal Studio for pulse building doesn’t detect the reference?
Most of the time, Signal Studio will recognize the reference; however, it can be changed in the download -> customize menu.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Why does my ESG report errors when I try to download waveforms using a National Instruments GPIB card with certain Signal Studio applications?
If errors reported by the ESG include “ -113 undefined header” and “-101 invalid character”, you need to download and install a patch for the Agilent IO Libraries.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Can I turn off the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator predistortion from the N7620B Signal Studio for Pulse Building to get more power?
No. The N7620B software does not allow the N6030A predistortion to be turned off.

FAQ 2012-12-30

What is the E8267D Option 016?
E8267D Option 016 is a PSG with differential inputs designed specifically for the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator outputs.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Is there an easy way to save a pulse pattern and send it to another person?
Yes, simply save the entire .pbp or you can export the pattern using the “export pattern” function.

FAQ 2012-12-30

How much jitter is there when using an external trigger?
Unless the trigger signal is synchronized to the Arb sample clock, you will see jitter equal to the sample period for the internal Arb and equal to 8 sample periods for the N6030A.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Does the Signal Studio for Pulse Building software run on a National Instruments embedded PXI controller like the one that comes with the N6030A?
Yes, it does. However, the Agilent I/O Libraries may need to be installed as a secondary VISA and then the NI Tulip DLL may need to be enabled.

FAQ 2012-12-30

How do I obtain the software?
A CD-ROM containing the latest software version available is shipped with your order.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Is it possible to adjust the phase offset using degrees instead of radians?
Yes. Select View -> Customize Pattern Item Table and toggle the ‘phase offset in degrees’ button

FAQ 2012-12-30

When would I use ALC Hold?
ALC Hold is used for pulses with rise and fall times greater than 100 ns. It is used with pulses that do not have constant envelope modulation (such as AM Step), and with multiple pulses where the pulses have different amplitudes.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Is it possible to append the data to the previous one in Graph View?
No.

FAQ 2012-12-30

How do I find my Agilent B2961A/B2962A firmware revision?
You can find the firmware revision on the Revision dialog box.

FAQ 2012-12-30

How do I enable the free 30-day trial license?
To obtain a trial license for Signal Studio B models (e.g. N7615B), download the Signal Studio software and visit the Agilent Software Licensing trial license request page for that model.

FAQ 2012-12-30

Where can I find information or example programs using the API for Signal Studio?
The Signal Studio for pulse building help file has information and example programs under the API control chapter.

FAQ 2012-12-29

Why can’t I view a help file downloaded from the Agilent website?
After downloading the file to your PC, open it from the location it was saved and a security warning appears. To view the help system, clear the checkmark from the "Always ask before opening this file" check box.

FAQ 2012-12-28

If I purchased a license for one signal generator, is that license transferable between signal generators?
Yes, transportable licenses are now available under the new Agilent licensing model.

FAQ 2012-12-28

How many coefficients should I use for custom FM?
The number of coefficients to use depends on the type of custom FM signal desired. Signal Studio for Pulse Building includes examples where 19 coefficients were used. The software allows as many coefficients as desired. The more coefficients used,...

FAQ 2012-12-28

What happens when I turn the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator off?
You will probably need to reboot PC if you are using an MXI to PXI interface. All signal data is lost.

FAQ 2012-12-28

How can I get 1 GHz modulation bandwidth below 3.2 GHz?
There is a special option that down converts the wideband signal. It is: E8267D Option H1S PSG with 1 GHz out for use by the Z5623AK92 down converter, 500 MHz – 3.2 GHz.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What is the internal Arb trigger delay jitter?
The internal Arb trigger delay is generated using a free running oscillator.

FAQ 2012-12-28

How much time/frequency error is introduced by the Custom Profile or Custom I/Q resampling?
After using the formula to calculate the number of resampled data points, work backwards to determine the error.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Can I use Signal Studio for pulse building with Windows® 7?
Windows 7 works with N7620B.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What happens to nested patterns and off-time packets in pulse mode?
Nested patterns are flattened. This means that a single trigger will not play the entire pattern. It merely steps into the pattern and plays the first pulse. The next trigger plays the next pulse, etc. Off-time packets are ignored in pulse mode.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Do corrections work with frequency and amplitude offsets?
Yes, however, the amplitude flatness accuracy is set by the spectrum analyzer flatness accuracy across the signal bandwidth...

FAQ 2012-12-28

Should the N7620B Signal Studio for Pulse Building software always use the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator built-in predistortion function?
Yes, the N6030A predistortion function works very well and should always be used.
