RF Generic Plug-in for AWG70000 Series and SourceXpress

RF signals are becoming more and more complex, making it more difficult to accurately create the signals required for the testing and characterization of RF systems. To address these challenges, RF Generic delivers advanced capabilities to synthesize digitally modulated baseband, IF and RF/microwave signals supporting a wide range of modulation schemes.

The RF Generic plug-in’s easy to use graphical user interface integrates seamlessly with the AWG5200 or the AWG70000 Series user interface and the SourceXpress platform.

RF Generic Plug-in for AWG70000 Series and SourceXpress
Feature Benefit
Baseband analog or digital IQ, IF and RF/microwave signal generation on AWG Series Synthesize waveforms directly. Apply impairments such as quadrature error and imbalance or non-linear impairments, or add interferences and multipaths during waveform creation. Replay signals at desired frequency or output.
Versatile carrier signal generation
  • Create single or Multi-carrier signals where each carrier is independently defined. RF Generic also allows for easy addition of modulated analog signals or noise signals.
  • Define and create carrier frequency hopping patterns
  • Define and apply a power ramping profile to the transmitted signal with control over ramp function, duration, position and amplitude.
Support for a wide range of modulation schemes Define baseband I and Q signals using a variety of predefined modulation schemes such as, BPSK, QPSK, PI/4 QPSK, OQPSK, SDPSK, 8-PSK, O-8PSK, up to QAM1024, GMSK, up to 32-FSK, and analog modulations.
Designed with integration in mind RF Generic has support for a Programmatic Interface built-in, allowing for immediate integration into existing workflows.
Offline Mode All of the Tektronix waveform creation Plug-ins are designed to also run on an external PC via the SourceXpress platform, thereby reducing the time taken to synthesize large waveforms and leaving the AWG free for continued testing.
Waveform Creation and Instrument Control Environment for PC
SourceXpress is a PC based software environment that enables Tektronix waveform creation plug-ins, simulates the native environment of a Tektronix AWG70000 or AWG5200 series Arbitrary Waveform Generator, and provides control of a connected generator.
