SignalVu® Datasheet

Read Online:

SignalVu RF and vector signal analysis software combines the signal analysis engine of the RSA5000 Series real-time spectrum analyzer with that of the industry's leading digital oscilloscopes, making it possible for designers to evaluate complex signals without an external down converter. You get the functionality of a vector signal analyzer, a spectrum analyzer, and the powerful trigger capabilities of a digital oscilloscope - all in a single package. You can use SignalVu with an MSO/DPO5000, DPO7000, or DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series digital oscilloscope to easily validate wideband designs and characterize wideband spectral events. Whether your design validation needs include wideband radar, high data rate satellite links, wireless LAN, WiGig IEEE 802.11ad/ay, or frequency-hopping communications, SignalVu can speed your time-to-insight by showing you the time-variant behavior of these wideband signals. The 5GNR analysis plug-in is supported on Windows 10 (SignalVu), DPO70000 SX oscilloscope models.

Wideband signal characterization

SignalVu helps you easily validate wideband designs and characterize wideband spectral events using an MSO/DPO5000, DPO7000/DPO70000 SX oscilloscope models, or DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series digital oscilloscope. Users can easily switch between the SignalVu application and the oscilloscope's user interface to optimize the collection of wideband signals.

Trigger

SignalVu software works seamlessly with the oscilloscope allowing users to utilize all of its powerful triggering capabilities. The ability to trigger on time- and amplitude-varying events of interest is paramount in wideband system design, debug, and validation. The Tektronix oscilloscopes' trigger systems allow selection of virtually all trigger types on both A and B trigger events whether they be transition, state, time, or logic qualified triggers. Once triggered, SignalVu processes the acquisition for analysis in multiple domains.

SignalVu_EN US_37W 22314 21
Powerful oscilloscope triggers allow the user to capture only the relevant portion of wideband signals. Pinpoint trigger functions such as combining A and B events with Edge with Holdoff can capture a pulse train during a specific transmitter mode of operation.

Capture

Capture once - make multiple measurements without recapturing. All signals in an acquisition bandwidth are recorded into the oscilloscope's deep memory. Up to four channels can be captured simultaneously; each of which can be independently analyzed by SignalVu software. Channels can be RF, I and Q, or differential inputs. Users can also apply math functions to the acquisition prior to analysis by SignalVu. Acquisition lengths vary depending upon the selected capture bandwidth - up to 25 ms can be captured on a single channel with the MSO/DPO5000 Series, up to 12.5 ms can be acquired on a single channel with the DPO7000 Series, and up to 2.5 ms can be captured on a single channel with the DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series. Significantly longer capture times can be realized with lower oscilloscope sample rates.

Using the FastFrame segmented memory feature in SignalVu enables you to capture events of interest, such as low duty cycle pulsed signals, while conserving acquisition memory. Using multiple trigger events, FastFrame captures and stores short-duration, bursty signals and passes them to SignalVu vector signal analysis functions. Capturing thousands of frames is possible, so long-term trends and changes in the bursty signal can be analyzed.

SignalVu_EN US_37W 22314 21
Once captured into memory, SignalVu provides detailed analysis in multiple domains. The spectrogram display (left panel) shows the frequency of a 500 MHz wide LFM pulse changing over time. By selecting the point in time in the spectrogram during the On time of the pulse, the chirp behavior can be seen as it sweeps from low to high (upper right panel).

Analyze

SignalVu RF and vector signal analysis software uses the same analysis capabilities found in the RSA5000 Series real-time spectrum analyzers. SignalVu advances productivity for engineers working on components or in wideband RF system design, integration, and performance verification, or operations engineers working in networks, or spectrum management. In addition to spectrum analysis, spectrograms display both frequency and amplitude changes over time. Time-correlated measurements can be made across the frequency, phase, amplitude, and modulation domains. This is ideal for signal analysis that includes frequency hopping, pulse characteristics, modulation switching, settling time, bandwidth changes, and intermittent signals.

SignalVu can process RF, I and Q, and differential I and Q signals from any one of the four available oscilloscope inputs. Math functions applied by the oscilloscope are also utilized by SignalVu allowing users to apply custom filtering prior to vector signal analysis.

The Microsoft Windows environment makes this multidomain analysis even easier with an unlimited number of analysis windows, all time-correlated, to provide deeper insight into signal behavior. A user interface that adapts to your preferences (keyboard, front panel, touch screen, and mouse) makes learning SignalVu easy for both first-time users and experienced hands.

SignalVu_EN US_37W 22314 21
Time-correlated, multidomain view provides a new level of insight into design or operational problems not possible with conventional analysis solutions. Here, the hop patterns of a narrowband signal can be observed using Spectrogram (lower right) and its hop characteristics can be precisely measured with Frequency vs Time display (lower left). The time and frequency responses can be observed in the two top views as the signal hops from one frequency to the next.

Options tailored for your wideband applications

SignalVu RF and vector signal analysis software is available for all MSO/DPO5000, DPO7000, DPO70000 SX oscilloscope models, and DPO/DSA/MSO70000 Series oscilloscopes and offers options to meet your specific application, whether it be wideband radar characterization, broadband satellite, or spectrum management. SignalVu Essentials (Opt. SVE) provides the fundamental capability for all measurements and is required for pulse analysis (Opt. SVP), settling time (Opt. SVT), digital modulation analysis (Opt. SVM), flexible OFDM analysis (Opt. SVO, not offered on MSO/DPO5000), and AM/FM/PM Modulation and Audio Measurements (Opt. SVA).

SignalVu_EN US_37W 22314 21
Wideband satellite and point-to-point microwave links can be directly observed with SignalVu analysis software. Here, General Purpose Digital Modulation Analysis (Opt. SVM) is demodulating a 16QAM backhaul link running at 312.5 MS/s.

SignalVu_EN US_37W 22314 21
Settling time measurements (Opt. SVT) are easy and automated. The user can select measurement bandwidth, tolerance bands, reference frequency (auto or manual), and establish up to 3 tolerance bands vs. time for Pass/Fail testing. Settling time may be referenced to external or internal trigger, and from the last settled frequency or phase. In the illustration, frequency settling time for a hopped oscillator is measured from an external trigger point from the device under test.

5G NR modulation analysis and measurements option

5G NR is among the growing set of signal standards, applications, and modulation types supported by SignalVu Vector Signal Analysis (VSA) software. The SignalVu VSA 5G NR analysis option provides comprehensive analysis capabilities in the frequency, time, and modulation domains for signals based on the 3GPP’s 5G NR specification.

By configuring result traces of spectrum, acquisition time, and NR specific modulation quality (e.g, EVM, frequency error, I/Q error) traces and tables, engineers can identify overall signal characteristics and troubleshoot intermittent error peaks or repeated synchronization failures.

Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) is a figure of merit used to describe signal quality. It does this by measuring the difference on the I/Q plane between the ideal constellation point of the given symbol versus the actual measured point. It can be measured in dB or % of the ideal sub-symbol, normalized to the average QAM power received, and display constellation of symbols vs ideal symbol. The EVM vs Symbol or EVM vs Time gives the EVM of OFDM symbols present in the number of symbols considered or the time within a slot.

For automated testing, SCPI remote interfaces are available to accelerate design, which enables the quick transition to the design verification and manufacturing phases.

  • Cell ID

  • Channel Power

  • Occupied Bandwidth (OBW)

  • Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR)

  • Spectrum Emission Mask (SEM)

  • Transmitter Off Power for TDD

  • Reference Signal Power

There are four presets to accelerate pre-compliance testing and determine the Cell ID. These presets are defined as Cell ID, ACLR, SEM, Channel Power and TDD Toff Power. The measurements follow the definition in 3GPP TS Version 12.5 and support all base station categories, including picocells and femtocells. Pass/Fail information is reported and all channel bandwidths are supported.

The Cell ID preset displays the Primary Synchronization Signal (PSS) and the Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS) in a Constellation diagram. It also provides Frequency Error and Reference Signal (RS) Power.

The ACLR preset measures the E-UTRA and the UTRA adjacent channels, with different chip rates for UTRA. ACLR also supports Noise Correction based on the noise measured when there is no input. Both ACLR and SEM will operate in swept mode (default) or in faster single acquisition if the instrument has enough acquisition bandwidth.
