We have developed the VB8300 VectorCreatorTM baseband signal generator and the VN7100 VectorExplorerTM wideband modulation analyzer, capable of generating or analyzing a wideband modulation signal required for the nextgeneration wireless communications market. The VB8300 features a maximum clock rate of 300 MS/s, a D/A resolution of 14 bits, a multichannel signal generation for up to 8 channels, an ultra long memory of up to 128 M points per channel, as well as sequence functions and noise and analog addition functions. The VN7100 features an 84-MHz to 6.2-GHz RF input frequency range, a maximum analysis bandwidth of 168 MHz, and an ultra long memory, thereby enabling various analyses including EVM analysis. This paper outlines both the VB8300 and VN7100 and their applications.
