Supports large capacity waveform patterns.
■ High-speed waveform transmission by
100BASE-TX Ethernet.
■ 40 Gbyte hard disk is built in.
Various large-capacity waveform patterns and MG3700A
parameters can be saved to the 40 Gbyte hard disk.
The transmission speed between the hard disk and the
waveform memory is very high (14 Mbyte/s typical).
If a hard disk breaks down, you can exchange it using the “HDD
ASSY (option)” optional accessory.
As communication systems evolve into wide-band and high
speed transmission, long waveform patterns must be
transmitted. To accommodate such long patterns at high speed,
the MG3700A supports 100BASE-TX LAN connections.
When the waveform patterns of two or more MG3700A
systems need to be updated, waveform data can be
simultaneously transmitted to all MG3700A via LAN, so update
time can be shortened.
■ Arbitrary waveform memory supports up to
2 GBytes.
1 GBytes = 256 Msamples/channel (standard)
2 GBytes = 512 Msamples/channel (option)
• High-speed transmission of waveform patterns: 2 Mbytes/s is
possible.
• Waveform patterns transmitted to MG3700A from an external
PC are saved to the built-in 40 Gbyte hard disk.
• LAN connectors are available on both the front and back
panels. Either can be chosen depending on the usage
environment.
Since the arbitrary waveform memory has a large capacity,
many waveform patterns can be saved simultaneously.
Waveform patterns are read from the hard disk and saved in
memory, to be outputted instantly without accessing the hard
disk again.
Although the standard MG3700A arbitrary waveform memory
can save 256 Msamples/channel (128 Msamples/channel x 2)
it is further extensible to 512 Msamples/channel (256
Msamples/channel x 2) as an option.

Useful standard functions
■ Waveform combining function
MG3700A contains two built-in arbitrary waveform memories, and these two memories can each choose one waveform pattern,
respectively. MG3700A can output the signal of either one of the memories, and can also combine and output both signals simultaneously.
When measuring receiver characteristics, such as “ACS: Adjacent Channel Selectivity” or “Blocking characteristics”, the
“Wanted Signal+Interfere Signal” and “Wanted Signal+AWGN” can be outputted by one MG3700A. Since digital processing is used for
adjustment and S/N, the level ratio accuracy is excellent.

Sequence Mode is a Combination function application that saves
operating parameters, such as the waveform pattern repetition
times, waveform pattern switching, and output level settings, to a
file. Simply selecting this file performs these operations automati-
cally. This is very convenient when investigating state transitions
in response to received signals, such as during connection procedures.

measurement of the receiving characteristic to be performed
easily. Input bit rate: 1 kbps to 20 Mbps

There is also a BER option for measurement from
100 bps to 120 Mbps (see the next page).

be saved. The log file contains test information including measurement time and date, error rate, bit count, termination
cause, and measurement mode.

• Data transfer function: Transfer and Setting
• Combination File generation function
A PC and the MG3700A can be connected via 100BASE-TX
Ethernet, and data such as a waveform pattern generated by
IQproducer™, a picture file, or a firmware upgrade file can be
transmitted. Since waveform patterns can also be transmitted in
a single procedure when multiple MG3700As are connected via
a LAN, operating time is reduced.
Moreover, waveform patterns on the MG3700A hard disk can
be saved by remote control in the arbitrary waveform memory,
and a waveform pattern can also be chosen to output.
The Combination File Edit function is one of the Transfer &
Setting Edit functions. Each Combination File contains the following parameters, so these settings are performed automatically just by selecting the Combination File:
• Waveform pattern
• Repetition times
• Interference waveform pattern (Memory B)
• Frequency offset (at addition of Memory A and Memory B)
• Level ratio (C/N at addition of Memory A and Memory B, and
relative level between elements for Memory A only)
Setting the Wanted Signal waveform and interference waveform
separately in the two memories makes it easy to measure
receiver characteristics.
Moreover, receive signal status transitions can also be verified
with a sequence by setting the switching and repetition times
for multiple waveform patterns.

Measurement sampling
■ Supports receiving characteristic evaluation for the base station and terminals of various mobile communications:
Since MG3700A supports waveform patterns that meet the requirements of mobile communications systems and includes a built-in
BER analyzer, it is the optimal equipment for receiving characteristic measurement. Moreover, the MG3700A waveform combining
function can combine two waveform patterns. A single MG3700A is thus able to output two signals, such as a “wanted signal +
interfering signal” and “wanted signal + AWGN (Additive White Gaussian Noise)”.

• The receiving sensitivity test covers measurements using two signals, such as ACS (Adjacent Channel Selectivity) and the blocking
characteristic.
• The waveform combining function enables a single instrument to output a signal such as “wanted signal + interfering signal” and “wanted
signal + AWGN”.
• Since S/N adjustment is carried out by digital processing, the level ratio accuracy is excellent.

■ Supports receiving characteristic evaluation of dual system cellular phone-related equipment:
In the cellular phone market where usage of dual systems such as “cellular phone+WLAN” is increasing, a signal source for various
communication systems is needed for receiving characteristic evaluation of a terminal/module/tuner. Since MG3700A supports the
waveform patterns of major communication systems and it excels in extendibility, it is the optimal signal generator for receiving
characteristic evaluation of dual system equipment that will be developed in the near future.
Moreover, it is important to determine that the receiving characteristic is not deteriorated by mutual interference of the new dual
communication systems. In this case, the MG3700A can also be used to create an interfering signal.

• A single MG3700A can output the wanted signal for receiving characteristic evaluation of various communication systems.
• It can also be used as an interfering signal for evaluating deterioration of the receiving characteristic due to mutual interference.
■ Supports the research and development of continuously evolving communication systems
By using the IQproducer™ data conversion function, a custom-made waveform file can be freely generated with common EDA tools.
For example, an IQ sample data file simulated by MATLAB is convertible to the waveform pattern file used by MG3700A with the
“external data conversion function” of IQproducer™. Thus, the MATLAB simulation result can be compared with an actual
measurement result.

In accordance with the standards of various communication systems, the
various parameters of a waveform pattern can be edited easily. The
parameter edit results are saved as a setting file, and can also be recalled.
Data converter function
✓
The setting file created by the system with the “parameter setting function”
is converted to an MG3700A waveform pattern. When using the MG3700A
generated waveform signal, the above “license for each system” is needed.
Moreover, a setting file programmed by the C language or MATLAB can
be converted to a waveform pattern. In this case, a license is not required.
Data transfer function
✓
Waveform patterns, display copy files, and update programs can be
transmitted from a PC to MG3700A via Ethernet.
Simulator function
✓
Allows a waveform to be checked on a PC by FFT and CCDF before
sending the waveform pattern to a mainframe.
