The possibility to emulate complex RF I/Q modulation for simulation and Test vs wireless devices or working on Internet of things of industry 4.0 applications. Each engineer may use the possibility to import waveform to emulate devices under test, impose distortion on waveform (such noise) to test the ability of devices to be compliant to the standards.

Research Applications

Research centers and Universities, are key users of Arb Rider generator’s series. Complex waveform and/or sophisticated Pulses emulation based on variable edges or multilevel could be perfectly created. The combination of fast edge generation, excellent dynamic range and easy to use user interface meet perfectly scientists and engineers working on large experiments such Accelerators, Tokamak or synchrotrons to emulate signals without creating specifics test boards.

Aerospace and Defense applications

Electronic warfare signals driven by Radar or Sonar systems perfectly match with these generators. Large BW Riders can be used on digital modulation systems for Radio Applications or others I/Q signal modulation. Pulses may be easily generated for applications such Pulse Electron Beam or X Ray Sources, Flash X-ray Radiography, Lighting pulse simulators, high Power Microwave modulators.

  • Frequency response, intermodulation distortion and noise-figure measurements
  • Phase Locked Loop (PLL) pull-in and hold range characterization
  • Radar base-band signals emulation
Semiconductors Test

Emulation of complex signals generated with inclusion of noise or distortions may became an excellent way to provide Compliance Components Test to help semiconductors engineers. The fast edges and pulse generation can be used to provide characterization in fast power devices.
