Keysight’s digital wideband transceiver test offering combines hardware and software to accelerate the entire design cycle. The test platform compares digital and RF signals between the device input and output, measuring transmitter and receiver responses independently of other test instruments.

On the hardware side, the N52xxB PNA/PNA-X vector network analyzer serves as a flexible microwave test engine for measuring amplifiers, mixers, frequency converters and other active devices. For configuration assistance, the S946001B device measurement eXpert software allows users to configure complex measurements for different types of devices.

A second program, the S94610B Digital Broadband Transceiver Analysis Software, provides test waveform creation and setup assistance for configuring mixed digital RF devices. Broadband stimulus waveforms are generated by the VXG vector signal generator (M938xB), while the PNA-X device measurement eXpert software provides device characterization and a control interface.

Keysight reports that these products reduce weeks of in-house measurement and data analysis efforts to minutes. They can be exploited not only at the component and subsystem level, but also at the system level, including the entire signal paths of 5G phased array antennas using massive MIMO technology. Together they maintain high measurement accuracy with gigahertz bandwidth in millimeter wave frequencies.
