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

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 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

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

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

Can multiple software applications communicate with a single N6030A arbitrary waveform generator at the same time?
Only one software application can communicate with the N6030A at a time.

FAQ 2012-12-28

Can I renew or extend the 30-day trial license after expiration?
After the trial license expires on an instrument, it cannot be renewed or extended.

FAQ 2012-12-28

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

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

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 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

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

Why do I want to mirror the spectrum?
Mirror Spectrum reverses the spectrum of the waveform when it is downloaded. This is useful for systems with external upconversion and downconversion where the signal spectrum is mirrored by the conversion process.

FAQ 2012-12-28

After the 30-day trial license is activated, can I suspend the trial period for future use?
No, the trial license is valid for 30 consecutive days, after which, you will have to purchase a permanent license to continue using the software.

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 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

How is the time remaining for a trial license tracked?
You can track the time remaining on the trial license from the front panel of the ESG/PSG by pressing Utility > Instrument Adjustments > Instrument Options > Waveform Licenses.

FAQ 2012-12-28

How many measurements do I need to make and how long is the predistortion data good?
The number of measurements needed depends on the number of parameters that are changed. The calibration (measurement data) could be valid for two days or longer.

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

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 are the details related to using the N6030xA/M933xA and N824xA arbitrary waveform generator predistortion?
The built-in predistortion scales the data to guarantee that you never get a DAC over-range condition. Typically, it gives up 2-3 dB of range. This is important because less power out of the N6030A means less leveled output power from the PSG with...

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

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

Why should I use Amplitude Offset?
Use the Amplitude Offset feature to account for any external gain or loss that is greater than 10 dB.
