Tektronix released SignalVu 5G NR analysis software for their 6 Series B MSO oscilloscopes to perform critical 5G NR measurements per 3GPP specifications. IN addition to providing a time-coherent view of the choreography of signals related to a design, it also includes important signal quality measurements such as Error Vector Magnitude (EVM), Adjacent Channel Power (ACP), Spectral Emission Mask (SEM), and Power Versus Time (PVT).
The analysis package enables pass/fail testing of the 5G NR physical layer to qualify transmitter designs per the 5G NR standard established under the 3GPP release of 15/16 test specifications. The 5G NR PHY-layer solution based on the Tektronix 6 Series B MSO offers signal analysis up to 2 GHz and low instrument noise for accurate EVM measurements. For high frequency systems, the 5GNR analysis option is also available on the DPO70000SX which offers up to 70 GHz bandwidth. The 5GNR option is also available for the Tektronix RSA500 and RSA5000 Series, and operates identically on oscilloscopes and signal analyzers.
