Release Highlights: W1461 SystemVue Core Platform Instrument Connectivity Waveform Sequence Composer The [sv201301:Waveform Sequence Composer] creates a custom waveform that can be composed of a sequence of other waveforms stored as variables in datasets or equations. It resolves the problem of wasting memory in instruments on storing too many pulse idle durations for radar applications. You can use [sv201301:Waveform Sequence Composer] to build complex composite waveform sequences. These sequences can be directly downloaded into Agilent M8190A arbitrary waveform generator and PXI-based M9381A vector signal generator to generate realistic signals with sufficiently long playback duration. Alternatively, you can also playback these sequences in subsequent simulations using the [sv201301:WaveformSequencer Part]. For details about using this part, see [sv201301:Waveform Sequence Composer]. The related examples can be found in ExamplesInstrumentsRadarWaveform Sequencing under SystemVue installation directory. Signal Studio PC License Support Agilent Signal Studio now provides PC licenses for various flavors of wireless standards. The [sv201301:ReadSignalStudioFile] model supports Signal Studio's PC licenses for playing back Signal Studio waveforms. Make sure you install Signal Studio PC License support package for this feature. For more details about general Signal Studio product portfolio and licensing information, refer to Signal Studio webpage. Signal Downloader Enhancements A new [SignalDownloader_M9381A] model has been added to download waveforms generated by SystemVue into Agilent's PXI-based M9381A vector signal generator. Both [SignalDownloader_M8190] and [SignalDownloader_M8190_1CH] now support event marker configuration, output routing and voltage level, and generation of binary waveform files that can be manually loaded into Agilent M8190A wideband arbitrary waveform generator. The [SignalDownloader_M8190_1CH] now supports selection of channels when the hardware has both channels available. When M8190A has two channels available, two [SignalDownloader_M8190_1CH] models can be used, one for each channel, to download waveforms into specific channels. In this case, make sure both waveforms have the same sample rate and also make sure to set the Reset parameter to NO in both models. M8190A Calibration Example The M8190A calibration example is provided to illustrate how to use Agilent PSA, MXA or PXA to calibrate M8190A arbitrary waveform generator with multitone scalar signal and digital modulation vector signal source. The example can be found in ExamplesInstrumentsM8190M8190_Calibration.wsv. Expanded Support for Digital Modulation New DigitalMod Model The [sv201301:DigitalMod] model is able to generate nearly 40 common digital modulation schemes. It combines modulation mappers, up-samplers, and filters as needed into a single model for convenient schematic setup. [sv201301:DigitalMod] makes an excellent signal generation companion to Agilent 89600 VSA software with the "AYA" option for digital demodulation. The supported modulation schemes and features include: Linear modulation formats: BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK, 16PSK, 16QAM to 4096QAM, Star16-QAM, Star32-QAM, 16-APSK, 32-APSK, Custom APSK Nonlinear modulation schemes: DQPSK, p/4-DQPSK, Offset QPSK, SOQPSK-MIL, SOQPSK-TG, D8PSK, EDGE-8PSK, p/8-D8PSK, MSK, GMSK, CPM, Multi-h CPM, CQPSK, p/4-CQPSK, IJF-QPSK, FQPSK, EFQPSK and 2FSK to 16FSK. The model also contains the most common pulse shaping filters, including Rectangular, Root Raised Cosine, Raised Cosine and Gaussian. Revamped EVM measurement sink The [EVM_Env] and [EVM_Cx] measurement sinks have been improved with the following new capabilities: They provide a wider array of more-accurate EVM results, which are now consistent with the test & measurement algorithms used in Agilent 89600 VSA software. They provide "single-pin" EVM measurements of 13 common modulation formats, using the internal symbol synchronization and mapping references. The supported measurements are BPSK, QPSK, 8-PSK, 16-PSK, 16-QAM, 32-QAM, 64-QAM, 128-QAM, 256-QAM, 512-QAM, 1024-QAM, Star 16-QAM and Star 32-QAM. The supported modulation formats are a consistent subset of the new [sv201301:DigitalMod] model, allowing easy re-configuration of both source & measurements using scripts and variables. BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY The [EVM_Env] and [EVM_Cx] models in SystemVue 2013.01 are NOT backward compatible with previous SystemVue releases. If you open a workspace using these models created with a previous SystemVue release, you will have to manually update the designs to make them work properly in SystemVue 2013.01. See the documentation of these models for detailed instructions on how to manually migrate them. If after saving the workspace in SystemVue 2013.01 you open it with a previous SystemVue release, you will have to go through the reverse migration steps to make the designs work properly in that release.
