Agilent Technologies announced the availability of a wideband MIMO PXI vector signal analyzer that delivers its highest-bandwidth signal analysis. The new analyzer enables R&D and test engineers to validate their MIMO 802.11ac designs with a combination of accuracy, speed, bandwidth and scalability in a small form factor.
Specifically designed for flexibility and growth, the wideband MIMO PXI vector signal analyzer is ideal for customers requiring 80 + 80-MHz SISO, and 80-MHz or 160-MHz MIMO 802.11ac measurements, and it provides 780-MHz analysis bandwidth for future wireless standards.
With one to four channels in a single PXIe chassis, the solution provides analysis capabilities for up to 4×4 MIMO in a 4U form factor M9018A chassis. By adding Agilent’s 89600 VSA software, engineers can gain greater insight into their next-generation 802.11ac WLAN chips and devices, regardless of the 802.11ac format implemented, according to the company.
The solution can also be used in combination with Agilent Command Expert, which is a free software application that provides fast and easy instrument control in many PC environments. It combines instrument command sets, documentation, syntax checking and command execution in a single interface.
