Tektronix's TDSUWB extension to its suite of oscilloscope software utilities extends UWB debug and analysis capabilities to include real-time analysis of UWB RF and electrical signals.
The Tek UWB WiMedia2 software module can be used with Tek's DSA70000, DPO70000 and TDS6000C series scopes.
Extensions in the UWB WiMedia2 for the WiMedia Alliance's UWB common radio platform offer single-button tests for debugging and RF compliance testing of WiMedia UWB systems.
Functions include demodulation of the RF waveform and RF signal quality measurements such as constellation patterns, EVM., power spectral density, ACPR measurements, and spectrograms. The display of modulation and time domain frequency domain waveforms are designed to offer new insight into UWB radios.
Tek UWB WiMedia2 automatically identifies time frequency Code (TFC) (frequency of operation and hopping sequence) and automatically identifies data rate from the RF waveform. The results of all combinations of TFCs, data rates, and bandgroups are tabulated to provide fast and easy documentation of all RF measurements.
The Tek UWB WiMedia2 is currently pre-release software and is available for download from Tektronix for a limited time without charge.
