SourceXpress™ Arbitrary Waveform Generator Software

SourceXpress™ Arbitrary Waveform Generator Software

  • From your PC, create waveforms using tools specifically targeted for your needs
  • From your PC, control one or many source instruments like the AWG70000 or the AWG5200
  • Control one or several AWG instruments from one application
  • Load and play waveforms remotely
  • There is no new application to learn! SourceXpress™ has the same look and feel as the AWG70000 and the AWG5200 instruments.

Features Benefits
SourceXpress runs on your PC Better time and resource utilization; control instruments remotely; create waveforms and/or modify waveforms
Emulate your AWG on the go Emulate an AWG instrument anywhere to build the waveforms you’ll run in the lab
Control your synchronized sources Control your multiple or synchronized AWGs from anywhere
Create waveforms, sequences and sub-sequences with ease Smaller and faster plug-ins allow for easy waveform creation, similar to RFXpress and SerialXpress
Pre-compensation and S-parameters Pre-compensate waveforms for distortion at your DUT or apply S-parameters to your waveforms
Add jitter, impairments, multipath, doppler and more Simulate impairments to test real world environments in the lab
Import the most common waveform files Use saved waveform files created from the most common tools, including RFXpress, SerialXpress, Matlab, Excel and more
Only one interface to learn
  • SourceXpress™ has an identical look and feel to the AWG70000. Learn only one interface
  • Waveform Plug-Ins integrate seamlessly on the PC or on an AWG
Get only the plug-ins you need From the library of waveform creation tools, have the flexibility to install and license only the waveform plug-ins you need -- without unwanted software features or overhead

Add advanced measurements with AWG plug-ins -- FREE for 30 days

Try these advanced measurements with a trial license. (All trials are floating licenses.)

These plug-ins can also be installed on the AWG70000 Series directly.

Node locked licenses let you move to a new PC three times. Floating licenses allow selected users to manage individual licenses.

 S-Parameter

 

  • Enables precise channel or device emulation by applying extracted S-parameters directly onto any waveform.
  • S-parameter files can be generated using a vector network analyzer and are convolved with the base pattern to recreate channel characteristics. By applying inverse filtering, the effects of the channel can be effectively de-embedded from the system.
  • The S-parameter plug-in also enables the ISI capability within the High Speed Serial plug-in.
1 This capability is built into several plugins and only requires a license to use it

 Spread Spectrum Clock (SSC)

 

  • Allows for SSC modulation to be added with precisely controlled profile, spread, deviation, and df/dt.
  • It supports triangular, sinusoidal, and user-defined frequency spreading schemes that can be added to the base pattern.
1 This capability is built into the High Speed Serial plugin and only requires a license to use it
