23 February 2017 – Keysight Technologies announced ten new PXIe instruments, including a new arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) that includes three highly synchronized channels for precise tuning of IQ waveforms and envelope tracking, as well as the industry’s first full-featured PXI oscilloscope. The AWG and oscilloscopes provide up to 1 GHz bandwidth to support complex baseband IQ signal generation and analysis for evaluating emerging 5G and aerospace & defense wideband technologies.
The M9243A PXIe oscilloscope is built with Keysight’s InfiniiVision oscilloscope technology, providing up to 1 GHz bandwidth for quick analysis and troubleshooting of wideband signals. With a 1,000,000 waveforms per second update rate and advanced probing technology, the oscilloscope enables troubleshooting of random and intermittent signals not easily seen with digitizer technology. Powerful features include cursors and markers, advanced triggering, waveform averaging, masks and 31 selectable measurements. When the scope is combined with 89600 VSA software, engineers can demodulate and evaluate complex IQ waveforms with a full 1 GHz bandwidth.
