SANTA CLARA, Calif., 2 June 2011. Agilent Technologies Inc. in Santa Clara, Calif., is introducing several different test and measurement tools for signal-creation software, signal generators, measurement applications, and signal analyzers for testing and evaluating military radar and electronic-warfare (EW) systems.Agilent (NYSE:A) is introducing the N7620A Signal Studio for pulse building software, the Agilent E8267D PSG vector signal generator with Option UNY, and the N9051A pulse measurement application to enhance the user's sense of realism in testing radar and EW applications, Agilent officials say.The N7620A Signal Studio for pulse building software, which helps users create realistic test signals, has options to generate pulse-width and pulse-repetition interval patterns. Jitter and wobulation add realism to simulated pulsed-RF signals. Options include antenna scan and radiation patterns for modeling antenna behavior.
The Agilent E8267D PSG vector signal generator can accept signals from the Signal Studio. Option UNY typically provides -143 dBc/Hz phase noise (10-kHz offset, 1-GHz signal) to simulate pulsed-Doppler radar returns from moving targets.
The N9051A pulse measurement application runs inside Agilent X-Series signal analyzers such as the PXA, MXA, and EXA to help users analyze signals involved in testing and evaluating radar and EW transmitters. for more information contact Agilent online at www.agilent.com/find/pulseapps.
