How does DC calibration affect channel corrections?
If a DC calibration is run with channel corrections applied, this may or may not degrade performance slightly.

FAQ 2013-02-26

When I use the 30-day trial license of the Signal Studio for WiMAX™, how can I check the number of days remaining on temporary license?
Press the front panel keys: Utility > Instrument Adjustments > Instrument Options > Waveform Licenses

FAQ 2013-01-28

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

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

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

FAQ 2012-12-30

On my E8267D, I get an error that the signal requires more repeats than supported, can I increase this limit with the internal baseband option?
No. To increase the number of pulse capacity either upgrade to an External Baseband option with the N8241A AWG or ...

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

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 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

Is there a way to simulate jitter in my pulse pattern?
Yes, Signal Studio for pulse building allows you to add jitter on the pulse width and pulse repetition interval.

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

What is a 30-day free trial license and how does it work?
The 30-day free trial period allows the user to try out our latest Signal Studio software products prior to purchase.

FAQ 2012-12-30

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 do I switch between trigger modes?
Any change between None, Continuous, or Single trigger mode requires only a "play" to update the Arb. Any change to or from the pulse trigger mode requires a "download and play". You must create a different waveform and sequence data for the pulse trigger mode.

FAQ 2012-12-28

What system configurations support ALC Hold?
Systems using the Internal Arb, Systems configured with the PSG and Option 016 and systems composed of the synthetic upconverter, N8212A...

FAQ 2012-12-28

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

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

What is the performance difference between the N8212A module with Option 016 and the N8241A arbitrary waveform generator synthetic instrument module?
The N8212A with Option 016 is based on the E8267D PSG signal generator with Option 016; the N8241A is based on the N6030A arbitrary waveform generator.

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

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

What is the best configuration for wideband I/Q modulation?
An E8267D Option 016 or an N8212A Option 016 signal generator with an M8190A arbitrary waveform generator

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.

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

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...
