From Agilent Technologies Inc. comes the first set of digital video measurement applications for its X-Series signal analyzers. The Digital Video Broadcasting-Terrestrial/Handheld (DVB-T/H) and Digital Terrestrial Multimedia Broadcasting (DTMB) measurement applications provide one-button, standard-based power and modulation analysis capabilities to help broadcasting and digital video customers design, evaluate and manufacture DVB-T/H and DTMB modulators, transmitters, amplifiers, tuners and gap fillers/repeaters.

The DVB-T/H and DTMB measurement applications feature easy-to-use, standard-compliant DVB-T/H and DTMB power and modulation analysis measurements for the MXA and EXA X-Series signal analyzers. Running on the X-Series analyzers, the measurement applications allow users to access functionality that extends beyond digital video. Users now have access to RF power measurements, spectrum emissions mask, digital demodulation, and general spectrum analysis all in one analyzer, dramatically simplifying DVB-T/H and DTMB system development and manufacturing analysis.

The ability to use the measurement applications with either the MXA or EXA signal analyzer each at a different price point, but with the same user interface provides the user with the utmost flexibility in addressing a wide range of application, performance and budgetary


Agilent's DVB-T/H and DTMB measurement applications contain features specifically designed for more convenient use in R&D, manufacturing and performance test. Along with an intuitive user interface, these features expedite troubleshooting and design verification.

Other key benefits of Agilent's DVB-T/H and DTMB measurement applications include increased reliability and SCPI command support, which help streamline manufacturing. An optional RF or analog IQ input (only available in the MXA) increases measurement flexibility.

Agilent X-Series signal analyzers feature the MXA and EXA solutions. The Agilent MXA is the industry's fastest, most accurate mid-range signal analyzer. Agilent's EXA offers speed at a lower price point. Together they offer unprecedented speed and application coverage.

The Agilent N6153A DVB-T/H and N6156A DTMB digital video measurement applications for the X-Series MXA N9020A and EXA N9010A signal analyzers are now available for purchase through Agilent's distribution or direct sales channels. The N6153A and N6156A are each priced at $7,000.
