Capture with a variety of tools

Capture once - make multiple measurements without recapturing. Using oscilloscopes, up to four channels can be captured simultaneously; each of which can be independently analyzed by SignalVu-PC software. Channels can be RF, I and Q, or differential inputs. You can also apply math functions to the acquisition before analysis by SignalVu-PC. Acquisition lengths vary depending upon the selected capture bandwidth: full-bandwidth acquisitions can range from 1 ms to 25 ms depending upon model and option selections. Real-time signal analyzer captures range from up to 7.15 seconds at maximum acquisition bandwidth to several hours at reduced bandwidths.


SignalVu-PC-Vector-Signal-Analysis-Software-Datasheet


Once captured into memory, SignalVu-PC provides detailed analysis in multiple domains. The spectrogram display (left panel) shows the frequency of an 800 MHz wide LFM pulse changing over time. By selecting the point in time in the spectrogram during the On time of the pulse, the chirp behavior can be seen as it sweeps from low to high (lower right panel).

Connect with the MDO4000B/C Series

With SignalVu-PC Connect (CON-SVPC), SignalVu-PC extends the functionality of the Mixed Domain Oscilloscope MDO4000B/C Series and turns it into the industry's only 1 GHz Vector Signal Analyzer. SignalVu-PC controls the MDO4000B/C RF section, acquires the vector-calibrated I/Q data, and makes wide-band, time-correlated, multi-domain measurements. You can analyze, correlate and troubleshoot issues in time, frequency, phase, amplitude, and even modulation, since you can acquire up to 1 GHz of bandwidth in one shot. You can leverage the MDO4000B/C triggering capability and extend your debugging work into system-level troubleshooting of your embedded RF devices.

Analyze

SignalVu-PC vector signal analysis software uses the same analysis capabilities found in the RSA5000 and RSA6000 Series real-time signal analyzers.

Time-correlated measurements can be made of frequency, phase, amplitude, and modulation versus time. This is ideal for signal analysis that includes frequency hopping, pulse characteristics, modulation switching, settling time, bandwidth changes, and intermittent signals.

Acquisitions from the USB Spectrum Analyzers and all Tektronix MDO/MSO/DPO Series oscilloscopes, including the spectrum analyzer in the Mixed Domain Oscilloscope can be analyzed with SignalVu-PC, adding deep analysis capabilities to these broadband acquisition systems. Signals acquired with RSAs and Specmon can also be analyzed with all of the post-acquisition analysis capabilities of those instruments.


SignalVu-PC-Vector-Signal-Analysis-Software-Datasheet


Time-correlated, multi-domain view provides a new level of insight into design or operational problems not possible with conventional analysis solutions. Here, the hop patterns of a narrowband signal can be observed using Spectrogram (lower left) and its hop characteristics can be precisely measured with Frequency vs Time display (upper left). The time and frequency responses can be observed in the two views on the right as the signal hops from one frequency to the next. All of the analysis shown above is available in the free base version of SignalVu-PC.

Optional applications tailored for your RF applications

The basic SignalVu-PC enables spectrum analysis, RF power and statistics, spectrograms, amplitude, frequency and phase vs. time, and analog modulation measurements. Applications are available for P25, Bluetooth, LTE, Mapping, Playback of recorded files, WLAN, settling time, audio, modulation, pulse, and OFDM analysis.

SignalVu-PC-Vector-Signal-Analysis-Software-Datasheet


Settling time measurements (SVT) are easy and automated. The user can select measurement bandwidth, tolerance bands, reference frequency (auto or manual), and establish up to 3 tolerance bands vs. time for Pass/Fail testing. Settling time may be referenced to external or internal trigger, and from the last settled frequency or phase. In the illustration, frequency settling time for a hopped oscillator is measured from an external trigger point from the device under test.

Playback of recorded files

With SV56, playback of recorded files from one of the USB spectrum analyzers is possible. Playback of recorded signals can reduce hours of watching and waiting for a spectral violation to minutes at your desk reviewing recorded data. Recording length is limited only by storage media size and recording is a basic feature included in SignalVu-PC. SignalVu-PC SV56 Playback allows for complete analysis by all SignalVu-PC measurements, including DPX Spectrogram. Minimum signal duration specifications are maintained during playback. AM/FM audio demodulation can be performed. Variable span, resolution bandwidth, analysis length, and bandwidth are all available. Frequency mask testing can be performed on recorded signals up to 40 MHz in span, with actions on mask violation including beep, stop, save trace, save picture, and save data. Portions of the playback can be selected and looped for repeat examination of signals of interest. Playback can be skip-free, or time gaps can be inserted to reduce review time. A Live Rate playback ensures fidelity of AM/FM demodulation and provides a 1:1 playback vs. actual time. Clock time of the recording is displayed in the spectrogram markers for correlation to real world events. In the illustration below, the FM band is being replayed, with a mask applied to detect spectral violations, simultaneous with listening to the FM signal at the center frequency of 92.3 MHz.

SignalVu-PC-Vector-Signal-Analysis-Software-Datasheet

Signal survey

The signal classification application (SV54) enables expert systems guidance to aid the user in classifying signals. It provides graphical tools that allow you to quickly create a spectral region of interest, enabling you to classify and sort signals efficiently. The spectral profile mask, when overlaid on top of a trace, provides signal shape guidance, while frequency, bandwidth, channel number, and location are displayed allowing for quick checks. WLAN, GSM, W-CDMA, CDMA, Bluetooth standard and enhanced data rate, LTE FDD and TDD, and ATSC signals can be quickly and simply classified. Databases can be imported from your H500/RSA2500 signal database library for easy transition to the new software base.

SignalVu-PC-Vector-Signal-Analysis-Software-Datasheet

Above is a typical signal survey. This survey is of a portion of the TV broadcast band, and 7 regions have been declared as either Permitted, Unknown, or Unauthorized, as indicated by the color bars for each region.

SignalVu-PC-Vector-Signal-Analysis-Software-Datasheet

In this illustration, a single region has been selected. Since we have declared this to be an ATSC video signal, the spectrum mask for the ATSC signal is shown overlaid in the region. he signal is a close match to the spectrum mask, including the vestigial carrier at the lower side of the signal, characteristic of ATSC broadcasts.

Smart antenna for interference hunting

SignalVu-PC with mapping can be used to manually indicate the azimuth of a measurement made in the field, greatly aiding in triangulation efforts. The addition of a smart antenna able to report its direction to SignalVu-PC automates this process. Automatically plotting the azimuth/bearing of a measurement during interference hunting can greatly speed the time spent searching for the source of interference. Tektronix offers the Alaris DF-A0047 handheld direction finding antenna with frequency coverage from 20 MHz -8.5 GHz (optional 9 kHz-20 MHz) as part of a complete interference hunting solution. Azimuth information and the selected measurement is automatically recorded on the SignalVu-PC Map just by releasing the control button on the antenna. Full specifications for the DF-A0047 antenna are available in a separate antenna datasheet available on www.Tektronix.com.

Advanced Pulse analysis

The Advanced Pulse Analysis package (SVP) provides 31 individual measurements to automatically characterize long pulse trains. An 800 MHz wide LFM chirp centered at 18 GHz is seen here with measurements for pulses 7 through 18 (upper right). The shape of the pulse can be seen in the Amplitude vs Time plot shown in the upper left.

1.TIQ files can be created on performance oscilloscopes with SignalVu installed. SignalVu is a separate product from SignalVu-PC.

2The MDO RF channel saves waveforms in the .TIQ format. MDO oscilloscope waveforms are stored in .ISF format.

SignalVu-PC vs. SignalVu

SignalVu for oscilloscopes is a separate product made to run directly on Tektronix performance oscilloscopes. SignalVu directly controls the acquisition settings of the oscilloscopes and automatically transfers data from the oscilloscope acquisition channel to the SignalVu software.

SignalVu-PC runs on a separate PC. Files from oscilloscopes and signal analyzers can be opened and analyzed. SignalVu-PC does not communicate with the acquisition instrument or control its acquisition settings.

Ordering information

Purchasing, licensing, and activation

SignalVu-PC and its applications are available for download atwww.tektronix.com/downloads. SignalVu-PCEDU is a bundle version of SignalVu-PC that includes all analysis applications for educational institutions.

A variety of optional, licensed applications are available for purchase for SignalVu-PC. These licenses can be associated with and stored on either your PC or any RSA300 series, RSA500 series, RSA600 series, and RSA7100A spectrum analyzers. Licenses can be purchased as an option to your hardware or separately as a Node-locked or a Floating license.

Contact your local Tektronix Account Manager to purchase a license. If your purchased license is not ordered as an option to your instrument, you will receive an email with a list of the applications purchased and the URL to the Tektronix Product License Web page, where you will create an account and can then manage your licenses using the Tektronix Asset Management System (AMS): http://www.tek.com/products/product-license.

AMS provides an inventory of the license(s) in your account. It enables you to check out or check in a license and view the history of licenses.

Optional applications are enabled by one of the following license types.

License type Description
Node locked license (NL) purchased as an option to your instrument When associated with an instrument, this license is factory-installed on that instrument at the time of manufacture. It will be recognized by any PC operating with SignalVu-PC when the instrument is connected. However, the licensed application is deactivated from the PC if the licensed instrument is disconnected.
This is the most common form of licensing, as it simplifies management of your applications.
Node locked license (NL) purchased separately This license is initially assigned to a specific host id, which can be either a PC or an instrument. It can be reassociated to either a PC or instrument two times using Tek AMS.
This license is delivered via email and is associated with either your PC or with an instrument when you install the license.
This license should be purchased when you want your license to stay on your PC, or if you have an existing USB instrument on which you would like to install a license.
Floating license(FL) purchased separately This license can be moved between different host ids, which can be either PCs or instruments. It can be reassociated to different PCs or instruments an unlimited number of times using Tek AMS. This license is delivered via email and is associated with either your PC or with an instrument when you install the license.
This is the most flexible license and is recommended in applications where the license needs to be moved frequently.

In December 2015, the license policy and nomenclature was changed for SignalVu-PC and its options. This will be a gradual change with systems running in parallel for both ordering new capabilities and accessing trial versions of optional licenses.

The legacy system, with SignalVu-PC and its associated options, will continue to be supported in the software, so there is no need to change your current licenses. You will also be able to use the trial options present in the legacy system for several months after the transition.

The new license structure and the old options are shown below.
