DVB-T/H measurement application for CXA

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Agilent Technologies

Keysight Technologies

Description :

The DVB-T/H measurement application for the CXA is one of more than 25 measurement applications in the Keysight X-Series, an evolutionary approach to signal analysis that spans instrumentation, measurements, and software, transforming the X-Series signal analyzers into standards-based transmitter testers. The DVB-T/H application provides fast, one-button standards-based power and modulation analysis capabilities to help your design, evaluation, and manufacturing of DVB-T/H modulators, transmitters, amplifiers, tuners, and gap-fillers/repeaters. DVB-T2, an extension of DVB-T standards, provides: a minimum of 30% increased capacity, improved single-frequency-network (SFN) performance, service-specific robustness, better error correction, and bandwidth and frequency flexibility.

  • Quote and availability


  • DVB-T, DVB-H, and DVB-T2 (Version 1.1.1 and 1.2.1) standards; DVB-T2 option supports Mode A (single PLP) and Mode B (multi-PLP) as well as SISO and MISO measurements
  • Transmitter, modulator, gap-filler or SFN network RF measurement
  • One-button measurements with pass/fail per the standard, plus auto detection
  • Runs inside CXA signal analyzer
  • Power measurement: channel power, shoulder attenuation, ACP, CCDF, spurious emission, SEM
  • Modulation accuracy measurement: constellation, TPS decoding (DVB-T), L1-signaling (DVB-T2), MER/EVM (MER RMS/peak, MER by subcarriers, MER by data, and pilot), BER, frequency error, amplitude error, phase error, phase jitter, quadrature error, amplitude imbalance, carrier suppression, MER monitoring
  • Channel frequency response and channel impulse response (supports SFN test for pre-, post-, 0 dB, and out-of-GI range echo scenarios)
  • Auto-detection or manual settings of the DVB-T, DVB-H, or DVB-T2 signal; provides advanced settings such as equalization switch, payload type, demodulation symbols, out-of-band filtering, clock rate, and BER count
  • Power accuracy: up to ±0.61 dB (95th percentile)
  • Shoulder attenuation dynamic range: up to 84.6 dB (91.8 dB typical)
  • MER floor: 39.8 dB (2K mode and 64QA M with Data EQ off for DVB-T); 39.1 dB (32K mode, 256 QAM, Constellation rotation Yes with EQ Off for DVB-T2)
  • Analysis bandwidth: up to 25 MHz (CXA Option PC5 recommended to improve the DVB-T2 modulation accuracy measurement speed)
  • License key upgradable
  • SCPI remote user interface
