Introduction
The Agilent E3238 series is a family of modular Signal Intercept
and Collection solutions. The systems are based upon COTS
industry standards for both hardware and software components.
To meet your specific solution needs, numerous system
components can be selected and configured. The modular and
scalable architecture makes it possible to build small footprint
intercept and collection solutions, or grow the system into fully
programmable signals development workstations.

E3238 Signal Intercept
and Collection Solutions
Since the RF spectrum and your acquisition requirements are
rapidly changing, the system is designed to be modular so as
your mission changes, the system hardware and software can
be easily updated to meet new requirements.
All of the solutions in the E3238 family are built around the
core 35688E application software. This software provides
the cockpit controls for the user, control of all the acquisition
hardware in the E3238 system, and more. This software runs
on Microsoft® Windows® XP and 2000.
35688E Option 103 – Standard Application Software
Currently many users tasked with signal survey are buying
many individual pieces of test equipment, including spectrum
analyzers and other devices. Often, customers end up writing
custom software and struggling to create databases for their
2
collected signals. It is a turnkey software solution for unknown
wireless emitter identification. The software provides an
extremely powerful, high speed portable, HF or V/UHF signal
survey and database collection and creation tool. It speeds
results by supplying all the necessary software to control
measurement acquisition hardware and provide automated
signal processing tools in one complete portable solution.
Option 103 provides the ability to add any or all optional
application packages to a single system. Often customers
purchase a single seat of Option 103 with the open
programming environment option, and multiple seats of
Option 103 with the run time enabler options. This makes it
possible to develop your own solutions and then deploy them
for less than buying full development seats for each system.

Examples of Fully Configured Systems
The following are examples of E3238S/35688E systems based
on the Agilent N6830A HF Receiver and 70 MHz IF ADC. The
Agilent N6830A is a dual channel HF receiver and 70 MHz
IF ADC used exclusively in Agilent's E3238S systems. This
module is configured for monitoring HF signals from 100 kHz
to 32 MHz and for monitoring V/UHF signals using the 70 MHz
IF ADC input.
The N6830A increases system flexibility with dual channels for
HF or 70 MHz IF for V/UHF. Both channels can be used for HF,
70 MHz IF for V/UHF, or a combination of HF and 70 MHz IF for
V/UHF. When used as an HF Receiver, the N6830A does not
require an additional HF Tuner since that capability is already
built into the N6830A. The N6830A greatly reduces system size,
weight, cost and power consumption over previous generation
E3238S/35688E systems based on the E1437A ADC and
WJC9119 HF Tuner combination.
HF search and collection
The N6830A allows you to have an HF search and 32 channel
narrowband collection system using only three slots of a VXI
mainframe. Additional narrowband channels can be added to
the system by adding E9821 DSP modules. Each additional
E9821 DSP module can add 32 to 96 narrowband channels.
An HF system in a five slot VXI mainframe can have up to 224
narrowband channels for collection.
Dual channel HF search and collection
The N6830A allows you to have two independent HF search
and 32 channel collection systems that only use four VXI
mainframe slots. The fifth slot could be used for 32 to 96
additional narrowband channels, or an E2730/31B tuner can
be added to create a dual channel HF and V/UHF Interceptor
system. These two HF systems are totally independent of
each other and run different instances of the 35688E software.
Since both instances are run from the same computer, only
one software license is required.
HF ALE intercept solution
The wideband search and narrow-band collection capabilities
of the E3238S/35688E are perfectly suited to reliably detect
and decode MIL-STD-188-141 ALE communications. The high
density signal processing capabilities of the G4 processors,
coupled with a 32 channel DDC makes a 32 channel HF ALE
intercept solution fit into three VXI mainframe slots. 128
channel systems only use four VXI mainframe slots.
4
V/UHF search and collection
A V/UHF search and 32 channel narrowband collection system
uses only four slots of a VXI mainframe. Additional narrowband
channels can be added to the system by adding E9821 DSP
modules. Each additional E9821 DSP module can add 32 to 96
narrowband channels. The typical DSP configuration for most
signal types is one dual G4 processor (Option 101) for each
32 channel digital downconverter (DDC, option 200). With
this configuration, each additional E9821 DSP adds 64 digital
downconverters for narrowband channelization.
Dual channel V/UHF search and collection
The N6830A allows you to have two independent V/UHF
search and 32 channel collection systems that only use six
VXI mainframe slots. The number of VXI mainframe slots can
be reduced to five if the SI-9136B 2-channel V/UHF tuner is
used in place of the two E2730/31 V/UHF tuners. These
two V/UHF systems are totally independent of each other
and run different instances of the 35688E software. Since
both instances are run from the same computer, only one
software license is required.
Simultaneous HF/V/UHF search and collection
The N6830A allows you to have an HF search and 32 channel
collection system and a V/UHF search and 32 channel
collection system in a five slot VXI mainframe. These two
systems are totally independent of each other and run different
instances of the 35688E software. Since both instances are run
from the same computer, only one software license is required.
5
Multi-channel search subsystem
35688E option EMC allows up to four tuner/ADC search
channels. Using 35688E option ASD (user programming)
a programmer can write programs that compare the power
of the four input channels to see which antenna has the
greatest signal strength. A hidden emitter is most likely
physically located nearest the antenna with the greatest
signal strength. Due to the complexity of EMC configurations,
customers should work with an Agilent sales person to
configure any system with multi-channel search capability.
Option EMC requires option ASD.
Microwave search and collection
The Agilent E4440A PSA can be used as a tuner for a very
broad search of the RF spectrum to include microwave
frequencies. The N6830A 70 MHz IF input bandwidth of
36 MHz matches the 70 MHz IF output bandwidth of the
PSA with Option HY7. PSA Option H70 is also supported,
but Option HY7 has better performance. The PSA is controlled
via LAN to allow search from 100 kHz to 26.5 GHz.
6
N6841A RF sensor search
The Agilent N6841A is an outdoor deployable, low-cost,
wideband digital RF receiver designed for high-density close-in
deployment. A typical 35688E intercept and collection software
setup is up to four sensors connected per server PC via a LAN
network running four instances of the 35688E software. Only
one 35688E software license is required for this configuration.
The N6841A's weatherproof enclosure and wide operating
temperature range allows it to withstand the harshest of
environments. The small low-profile form factor offers many
discreet mounting options.
The capabilities supported with the N6841A RF sensor are
wideband capabilities. If you need narrowband capabilities, like
multi-channel recording, you will need to use the VXI hardware
that supports digital down convertors.
Key features of the N6841A interface to the 35688E software
are:
• High speed and high resolution search receiver
• General and directed sweeps
• Energy detection
• Alarms
• 20 MHz to 6.0 GHz frequency coverage
• 20 MHz of information BW
• Deep capture memory
• Modulation recognition (Opt MR1)
• Wideband universal signal detection (Opt USD)
• RF Sensor Measurement Synchronization (Opt SSY)
• Integrated GPS for time and location (Opt GPS)
• Snapshot (IQ time block)
• Antenna switching

Typical Subsystem Configurations
Search subsystems
Every E3238 system must have at least one search subsystem.
The E9821A DSP module is used for all signal search
subsystems, but the tuners and digitizer configurations are
selected depending upon the frequency range of interest.
HF, VHF/UHF, and microwave coverage
Since the system is built using modular hardware, it is easy
to reconfigure a system for different missions. To change the
coverage of search frequencies, simply change the E3238's
tuner and use the appropriate input of the N6830A HF receiver
and 70 MHz IF ADC. The other measurement hardware is the
same for all systems. Some of the most common tuner and
digitizer configurations are shown below.
Optimizing the ADC
The Agilent N6830A is a dual channel HF receiver and 70 MHz
IF ADC used exclusively in Agilent's E3238 systems. This
module is configured for monitoring HF signals from 100 kHz to
32 MHz and for monitoring V/UHF signals using the 70 MHz
IF ADC input. The N6830A's HF input provides high dynamic
range that is critical for the crowded HF spectrum. For VHF/
UHF and uWave, the N6830A's 36MHz stare bandwidth lets
you continuously search wide frequency ranges or sweep
at rates up to 10 GHz/sec. This minimizes revisit times and
maximizes probability of intercept.
E9821A DSP performance
Search is performed by detecting new energy in the frequency
domain, as new signals briefly appear and disappear. To do
this at the extremely high sweep rates attainable with the
E3238, extensive DSP capabilities are required. The E9821A
DSP module uses Motorola® G4 DSP's with altivec vector
processing to provide new levels of performance, FFT’ing
time-domain data, processing the results, and transferring
results to the host computer. For maximum performance,
six G4 processors are used to parallel-process the time-domain
data.
100 kHz - 32 MHz HF VXI tuner
with exceptional dynamic range
20 MHz - 6 GHz VHF/UHF VXI tuner
with 36 MHz bandwidth
500 MHz - 20 GHz µWave VXI tuner
for coverage to greater than 60 GHz
HF with exceptional dynamic range
When used as an HF receiver, the N6830A
HF receiver and 70 MHz IF ADC does not
require an additional HF Tuner since that
capability is already built into the N6830A.
The N6830A provides exceptional dynamic
range. It can find small signals hiding
near large ones or pull signals out of the
noise floor. The N6830A's selectable stare
bandwidths of 4, 8, 16, and 32 MHz supports
wideband search, maximizing probability of
intercept.
VHF/UHF with 36 MHz bandwidth
When used as a VHF/UHF ADC, the N6830A
HF receiver and 70 MHz IF ADC's 36 MHz IF
bandwidth matches the IF bandwidth of the
E2730B 20 - 2700 MHz tuner and the E2731B
20 - 6000 MHz tuner. This allows you to
stare at wide frequency regions. For covering
the full frequency range of these tuners,
the E3238 with the E9821A DSP can sweep
at rates up to 10 GHz/sec, dramatically
decreasing revisit times.
µWave coverage to greater than 60 GHz
The N6830A HF receiver and 70 MHz
IF ADC's 36 MHz IF input is an industry
standard, making it compatible with the CS
5040 0.5 - 20 GHz VXI tuner. The N6830A's 36
MHz stare bandwidth and exceptional E3238
sweep rates also apply when using the CS
5040 tuners. Options to the CS 5040 allow it
frequency coverage to 100 GHz. The
CS 5040 tuner must be ordered separately
from Rockwell Collins.

Collection subsystems
In the simplest form of intercept and collection system, a single
E9821A serves as both the search signal processing controller
AND as the collection processing controller.
To add more collection signal processing into the system,
additional E9821A DSP modules are added into the VXI
mainframe.
Each of the E9821A modules has four internal mezzanine
card slots for insertion of either dual G4 DSP modules or 32
channel DDC modules. A multi-channel narrowband processing
hardware subsystem (software defined receiver) is created
when a DDC module and dual G4 DSP module are combined
inside the E9821A.
One example of a collection subsystem is the implementation
of a bank of narrowband receivers. The receivers are normally
“tipped” by the search subsystem to tune one of its many
digital down converter (DDC) channels to the center frequency
and bandwidth of the target narrowband energy.
The system can then record the signals to disk or perform
further analysis of the energy to determine its internal signal
characteristics. If the energy and signal characteristics match
those in the search criteria, the system will pass information
to other internal collection and processing components to
demodulate and decode the signal. Other operations beside
demodulation are possible. The processing actions of a
collection system are determined by the collection algorithms
created with 35688E optional programming software
E9051A-121 used to create signal algorithms that run inside the
E9821A G4 based DSP modules.
Agilent has created a variety of software defined collection
systems, including a pager intercept system, voice activity
detection system, ALE intercept system, modulation
recognition system, and others.
One of the most powerful options for the E3238 system is
universal signal detection (Option USD). Option USD allows
you to rapidly reconfigure the search and collection system,
without programming, when your mission changes. A universal
signal detector automatically identifies signals of interest by
Search with collection + additional collection
operating on the characteristics of RF transmissions. Agilent's
universal signal detection option includes bandwidth filters,
frequency plans, wideband detectors, and narrowband
confirmers. These wideband and narrowband technologies are
combined to efficiently sift through the crowded spectrum
and significantly increase the probability of intercept. As signals
of interest are detected, simultaneous gap-free recordings are
easily handled by the multiple DDCs and parallel DSPs in the
E3238 system. When a new threat emerges you can quickly
build a detector from a recording or from a live signal without
programming.
Contact your Agilent sales engineer to help you configure a
system for your specific processing requirements.

Building an E3238S from
Foundation Components
The E3238 has two basic configurations, E3238S and E3238SU
•
•
E3238S is a factory integrated system of computer,
hardware and software, with pre-defined configuration
requirements.
E3238SU is used to order non-standard system
configurations, upgrading existing systems or buying spare
equipment as standalone components. The E3238SU
requires the further selection of one of two options :
-
E3238SU-001
Integrated special or non-standard
system, requires statement of work
-
E3238SU-002
Standalone items for system
upgrade or spares
Since the E3238SU does not have pre-determined configuration
requirements, purchase of an E3238SU system requires
configuration advice from a factory expert.
The E3238S and E3238SU both contain the same system
components. To minimize duplication only the E3238S
components and configuration requirements are described in
this configuration guide.
Step 1
Choose the frequency range for the signals of interest by
selecting the combination of tuner, ADC, and/or receiver.
With advice from an Agilent applications engineer, special
configurations can be created to cover multiple frequency
ranges.
The E3238S can monitor HF, VHF/UHF, or microwave signals.
For HF, only the N6830A HF receiver needs to be selected. For
VHF/UHF or microwave the N6830A’s IF input and a tuner are
configured as a combination.

HF frequency range receiver
The N6830A is a dual channel, single slot, C-size VXI module
that plugs into the VXI mainframe. When used as an HF
receiver, the N6830A does not require an additional HF tuner
since that capability is already built into the N6830A. The
N6830A monitors HF signals from 100 kHz to 32 MHz.
V/UHF frequency range tuner and IF digitizer
The E273xB V/UHF tuners require one VXI slot each.

Step 2
Choose 35688E software (required)
Every E3238 system must have one copy of 35688E
application software to run the hardware. 35688E-103 core
software provides control of all the systems assets from
antennas to digital receivers.
The software includes:
- a variety of signal visualization tools
- a powerful automatic energy detection and
threshold detection system
- a database for logging energy and signals
- an automated alarm engine that makes it possible to
run an unattended system and still get great results
Software update service – 35688-1RU or 2RU
Options 1RU and 2RU provide intermediate software updates
and enhancements.
Step 2.1
General purpose signal options
The 35688E software provides the application modules for
detecting and monitoring various signal types. There are both
general purpose signal options and options for detecting
specific signal types.

USD* - Universal signal detection
The universal signal detection option provides a foundational
capability and structure upon which you can create E3238S
signal detectors to find signals of interest (SOI) without the
need to program and/or compile code. Option USD is a very
flexible and powerful tool for signal detection and classification.
Without programming, you can quickly change the USD
settings and parameters to detect new signals.
Universal signal detection techniques include bandwidth
filters, frequency plans, wideband detectors, and narrowband
confirmers. These techniques can be used individually or
combined for a powerful solution.
The USD bandwidth filter and frequency plan are used prior to
wideband detection and narrowband confirmation to filter out
all signals that don't meet the frequency and bandwidth criteria
for the signal of interest.
11
4
USD wideband detection operates on the frequency-domain
results of each sweep. When energy is detected in the
frequency spectrum, that portion of the frequency spectrum is
processed by one or more wideband detectors. The wideband
detectors quickly determine if the energy is a potential signal of
interest by comparing its magnitude spectrum to the wideband
detectors you created.
USD narrowband confirmation operates on time-domain
data collected from a narrow frequency band. Narrowband
confirmation involves assigning a narrowband processing
channel to capture a potential signal of interest. Algorithms
such as modulation recognition and demodulation (Option
MR1) can then confirm if a signal is of interest.
Detected signal information is collected in the universal signal
database. Detected signals can be automatically recorded, their
frequencies can be added to a frequency list, and the detected
signals can be used as criteria for energy and signal alarms.
A signals design environment is used to create and test signal
detectors without programming. The detectors are stored in a
signal detector library. There is no limit to the number of signal
detectors stored in the library. Up to 23 signal detectors can be
active at the same time. There is no limit to the number of
wideband detectors or narrowband confirmers you can add to
each signal detector.
MR1 – Modulation recognition software
35688E-MR1 adds wideband modulation recognition capability
or narrowband confirmation to an E3238 system. Many analog
and digital modulation formats are supported. Wideband
modulation recognition runs on the search system’s host CPU,
it does not require collection hardware; therefore systems are
physically smaller and less expensive. Narrowband confirmation
runs in conjunction with option USD and requires narrowband
collection hardware.
Key features:
• Modulation recognition user interface integrates into
the E3238 interface
•
Signals are tested for all modulation types, and the
most likely are displayed graphically with additional
pertinent information
•
Integrates with universal signal detection

Real-time audio makes it possible to use the narrowband DDC
assets in a system as a virtual realtime handoff receiver. It is
of value for customers who are already buying other options
such as NBR, VA1 or other backend processing signal options.
NBR* – Narrowband signal recorder
The E3238 narrowband recorder (NBR) extends the
functionality of the E3238 system to include multi-channel
recording of narrowband signals up to 350 kHz bandwidth
per channel. It is a general-purpose recorder that is called as
an alarm task. Unlike 35688E-FMR and PLR, NBR does not
perform any tests on the signal. It simply records the time
data from the DDC’s output to the system disk. The center
frequency and bandwidth of the recording can be passed from
the energy alarm, a signal alarm, or be selected by the operator.
Option USD includes the functionality of NBR.

The 35688E-AL9 software is targeted at a specific device: HF
military radios that use automatic link establishment protocols,
MIL-STD-188-141. It intercepts the link negotiations, and
captures the callsigns of the radios establishing a link. The
software includes extensive displays that allow operators
to visualize the patterns of communication, including the
time of day, frequencies used, the “to” and “from” callsigns,
interconnection of callsigns, and other information such as
LQA or AMD.
DTM* – DTMF signal recognizer
The 35688E-DTM software detects, decodes and records FM
signals containing dual-tone multi-frequency dialing tones.
With the DTM option, your signals of interest will be processed
to include only signals with the familiar touch-tone keypad
frequencies. Multiple narrowband channels are recorded
simultaneously using the E9821A-200.
FMR* – FM signal recognizer/recorder
The 35688E-FMR software for the E3238 detects VHF/
UHF frequency modulated signals and records both the
demodulated and un-demodulated narrowband time data and
the demodulated voice or data to the E3238S system disk.
To use the FM recognizer software, an operator creates an
energy alarm that identifies energy with the bandwidth of the
signals of interest. The alarm task chosen for this alarm is FM
recognizer. When energy of the correct bandwidth is detected,
the center frequency is passed to an available DDC channel.
It extracts that channel from the wideband data, and passes
it to the G4 processors, which test to see if it is an FM signal.
If it is, the signal is recorded to the system disk in a variety of
demodulated and un-modulated file formats..
PG1*– Pager intercept
Pager signals are automatically intercepted, demodulated,
decoded, and recorded by the Pager Intercept System.
Over 100,000 pages per hour can be recorded. User-defined
alarms search new pager messages for capcodes and pager
parameters, as well as words and numbers contained in ASCII
messages. A display shows the alarms as they occur, allowing

PLR*– CTCSS signal recognizer
The E3238 Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System (CTCSS)
Detector software extends the E3238’s functionality to provide
detection of signals using CTCSS in their transmissions. A
CTCSS transmitter uses a sub-audible tone that is sent along
with the transmission, A CTCSS receiver or repeater will detect
this sub-audible tone and allow the reception or transmission
to happen. The main benefit is the rejection of all other
transmissions that do not contain the sub-audible tone. This
is particularly helpful for repeater stations and to minimize
interference in crowded RF environments.
VA2*– V/UHF voice activity detection/recorder
The E3238s VHF/UHF voice activity detector (UVAD) software
extends the E3238s functionality to provide multi-channel
automated detection of FM modulated voice signals within the
VHF/UHF frequency spectrum. The UVAD software includes
a built-in recording capability, allowing the user to optionally
record detected voice signals. Voice recordings can be saved
in a variety of formats, including .AU, .WAV, and E3238s .CAP
files.
(The E9821 "collection" module can contain up to three
32-channel DDC daughter cards providing a maximum of 96
channels of simultaneous NBR recording channels per
E9821 VXI module. Multiple E9821A modules can be added
for higher channel counts.)
* Note: AL9, AU1, FMR, NBR, PG1, PLR, VA2, DTM, and
USD require at least one E9821A DSP with one or more DDC
daughter cards. Refer to the loading factor tables for the
amount of processing power recommended for each signal
processing option and number of channels. Each additional
E9821A VXI module provides additional channels and
processing. The loading factor tables are located at the end of
this configuration guide.

35688E Signal compatibility – Various 35688E signal options and developer options
are compatible with specific signal ranges .
Step 2.3
Choose software enabler options
The 35688E software enablers are used for runtime or
development. Some software enablers, e.g. ESX are required
to run customer-developed software.
35688E-WRP
35688E-WDF
35688E-EDF
35688E-EMC

Enable wideband direction finding subsystems
Enable narrowband direction finding subsystems
Enable multiple search channel applications
Enable multi-system synchronization applications
Enable customer-developed signal processing
applications
35688E-ECH Enable channelized data
EDF – Enable narrowband direction finding subsystems
This option is required for an E3238 system that will be interconnected with a supported external direction-finding system.
These DF sub-systems are supported with a software driver:
• TechComm TC-5025
• Titan/L-3 Comm PRD-13
• Cubic VXI 4400 (uses Cubic VXI-3570
handoff receiver)
WRP - Enable wideband record and playback subsystems
This option is required for an E3238 system that will be
interconnected with a supported external disk array.
The supported disk arrays are:
• E3238S-050 5.12 TB, 1U disk array
• E3238S-051 16.0 TB, 2U disk array
14
WDF - Enable wideband direction finding subsystems
This option is required for an E3238 system that will be
interconnected with a supported external wideband direction
finding system. The E3238 system supports the TCI Model 903
SLIC Wideband DF System.
EMC – Enable multiple channel search
The 35688E-EMC multiple channel option allows an ASD
programmer to compare the power spectrums of signals from
up to four antennas to determine which antenna a specific
emitter is nearer. Up to four tuner/ADC combinations are
supported by ASD. A typical application for ASD is searching
for a hidden emitter and determining whether it is inside or
outside a building. This option requires additional system
hardware and project consultation from Agilent for successful
implementation.
EMS – Enable multi-system synchronization
This option makes it possible to accurately synchronize the
timing of multiple E3238 based systems. This option requires
additional system hardware and project consultation from
Agilent for successful implementation.
ESX – Enable all signal processing applications
Each customer-developed signal processing application
connects to this runtime enabler module. Only one option ESX
is required per system.
ECH – Enable channelized data
Option ECH delivers multiple channels of narrowband time
data to an external processing workstation. The time data can
be delivered to the host processing workstation via LAN for
convenience and low cost, or via a serial front panel data port
(sFPDP or FPDP) for higher throughput. The multiple channels
of data can be set up from the E3238S user interface, using an
alarm, or by sending a command string.

Control for new or special receivers
SSY* - RF Sensor Measurement Synchronization
Option SSY enhances the E3238S systems by synchronizing
the spectrum sweeps of multiple systems. E3238S systems
search the RF spectrum by quickly stepping the receiver
frequency and measuring the spectrum in multiple segments.
This process is called "sweep," although it is actually discrete
frequency steps. Some applications require multiple E3238S
systems with synchronized sweeping.
*Note: This option is only available for E3238S Signal Detection
and Monitoring Solutions that use the N684X RF Sensor
hardware.
N6829A audio player
Audio player is a separate software tool that allows linguists
using independent PC’s on a system LAN to manage files,
demodulate, and listen to voice channels saved by the E3238
system or the 89600 vector signal analyzer. One copy of audio
player is required for each PC.

N6829B-LKC
Computer-keyed software license
N6829B-LKI
Independent USB-keyed software license
N6829B-LKS
Shared USB-keyed software license
One of the license key options must be chosen. Option LKC ties
the N6829B software to the hostID of the PC. Options LKI and
LKS encoded the license file to a removable USB hostID device
(USB Key). Option LKS lets you share the USB key device with
the 35688E or N6820E software licensing schemes.
Step 2.5
Development software
35688E-ASD
User programming libraries
and documentation
E9051A-121
E9821A DSP programming
ASD* – User programming libraries and documentation
Option ASD makes it possible for users and other system
integrators to dynamically link new functions and capabilities
into the E3238 such as:
• Custom energy classification functions
* Note: To make and save programming changes with Option
ASD, users must own and have installed a copy of Microsoft
Visual Studio .NET
Special Option E9051A-121 – DSP Programming
This special option provides a narrowband digital signal
processing development environment for self-integrators.
Contact your Agilent sales engineer for ordering and
availability. User software created with the E9051A-121
DSP programming option can run in the E3238S provided
that option ESX (Enable narrowband processing) is
installed on the runtime system.
Step 2.6
License key choices
The 35688E software can be tied to a USB key or the hostID
of the PC. Your license file can be encoded specifically for
a removable USB hostID device (USB Key) by selecting LK1
option. This is the best choice if you prefer to work on multiple
computers. Alternatively, your license file can be keyed to a
specific computer as option LK2. A unique hostID is derived
from your computer's components. This is the best choice if
you need operational simplicity on one machine.
You should have a failure recovery plan for the complete
system hardware, including the computer. To recover from
a computer failure, the software may need to be re-installed
and properly configured on a back-up computer. To activate
the license on the option LK1, simply move the USB key to
the back-up computer and continue operation of the system.
To operate a back-up computer with LK2, you must contact
the Agilent E3238S Software Licensing Administration
team for a new computer-keyed license file. In emergency
situations where these remedies are not possible, an option
LKB is provided as a quick, fail-safe recovery of software
operation. This single-use, emergency back-up key will enable
the operation of the E3238S for a few days from when it
is activated. The back-up key is only for temporary license
recovery when you are unable to contact the Agilent E3238S
license administration team.

Step 4
Step 3
Select a DSP module (required)
At least one E9821A DSP module must be included in the
VXI mainframe. Up to four E9821A DSP modules may be
chosen. Each DSP module has a total of four sites to attach
a combination of 1 to 3 dual G4 processors and zero to three
multi-channel digital down converters (DDC's) for narrowband
channelization. Additional E9821A DSP modules can be added
for more processing power and/or more narrowband channels.
Delay memory can be created by using two E9821A modules.
E9821A
Signal processor module for E3238 system
E9821A-101
Add dual G4 processor card with
extended RAM
E9821A-200
Multi-channel digital downconverter card
E9821A-0B2
Standard manuals included
Two 9045A fiber Optic cables must be used to connect each
E6830A to an E9821A. Multiple E9821A’s require one fiber
optic cable between each module. Spares of this cable are
recommended.
E9045A
Fiber-optic 16-inch simplex cable
DSP processors will be positioned in the mainframe with the
first DSP on the left and the second to the right of the first. The
first DSP will always be the search DSP, and may also have 32
channels of collection. The second through fourth additional
E9821A VXI signal processor main boards are added for
collection use only.
In a “search only” system configuration, the E9821A should
be configured with 3 each option 101’s to provide the most
processing power. In a search and 32 channel collection
system, the E9821A should be configured with 3 each option
101 and one each option 200. In system configurations with
more than 32 channels, the configurations of the DSP’s
depend on the type of signals and the processing load factor.
As an example, an ALE signal is simple to process, so it
can be processed effectively in a 1 Dual G4 with 3 digital
downconverter card configuration. A U/VHF VAD signal is
more complex and requires a 2x2 configuration of 2 DSPs /2
digital downconver cards. Use the DSP G4 processor and/or
DDC channels load factor table in section 5 of this document
to determine the configuration of the E9821A DSP for specific
signals.

Choose system controller (required)
The E3238S system requires a PC to control the instrumentation
via the software.
LTPC2

Additional capabilities (optional)
Switching
The E1472A 50 ohm single slot VXI RF multiplexer may be
used in the E3238S system as an antenna switch. The E1472A
is only appropriate for switching HF signals or the outputs of
multiple tuners due to its 1.3 GHz maximum frequency.
Be sure to include the VXI slot required in the VXI mainframe
in step 6.
The E1368A18 GHz microwave switch is a single slot B-size
VXI card and requires the E1403C C-size VXI carrier module.
This microwave switch would be used to switch antenna
inputs to the E2730B or E2731B tuners for VHF/UHF signals.
