Technical Overview
Basic vector signal analysis (Option 200) provides the foundation of the tools and user
interface that make up the 89600 VSA software. Explore virtually every facet of today’s
most complex signals with views of time, frequency and modulation domains. Beneit
from the lexible GUI capabilities: arbitrary arrangement and sizing of unlimited display
traces, each with unlimited markers. Powerful display formats, signal recording and playback, and detailed Help text provide the insight needed for analyzing signals. Use the
89600 VSA software in simulation with sink and source components providing real-time,
interactive analysis of results. Co-simulation is available with Keysight Technologies, Inc.
EEsof Advanced Design System (ADS) and SystemVue ESL as part of Option 200.
Hardware connectivity (Option 300) allows the 89600 VSA software to be linked to over
40 Keysight instruments. Choose the right instrument for your application and apply
vector signal analysis across your mixed signal design. Use the 89600 VSA software for
consistent, comparable results at simulation, prototype and design-validation stages of
development.
These options work together to provide a comprehensive set of tools for demodulation
and vector signal analysis. These tools enable you to explore virtually every facet of a
signal and optimize your most advanced designs. As you assess the tradeoffs, the 89600
VSA helps you see through the complexity.
Vector signal analysis
Today’s wide-bandwidth, vector-modulated (also called complex or digitally modulated),
time-varying signals beneit greatly from the capabilities of FFT analysis and other DSP
techniques. Vector signal analysis offers fast, high-resolution spectrum measurements,
demodulation, and advanced time-domain analysis. It is especially useful for characterizing burst, transient, or modulated signals used in communications, video, broadcast,
radar, and ultrasound imaging applications.
The 89600 VSA software is fundamentally a digital system that uses data and mathematical algorithms to perform analysis. All it requires is sampled data from an instrument, software, or digital bus. As a larger portion of wireless designs becomes digital,
the 89600 VSA software is uniquely suited to provide signal analysis for these complex
systems.
The 89600 VSA software running on a PC uses a measurement “front-end” or data
acquisition subsystem to provide formatted sampled data. The front-end performs the
following functions: connection to the device under test, signal digitizing, signal capture
capability, and data transfer to the PC in a sequential stream of data blocks. Once the
data blocks are available, the 89600 VSA software is able to perform all vector and
modulation analysis functions.

Analysis and
Troubleshooting
Find the root cause of signal
problems with advanced troubleshooting tools
Quantify spectral performance with highresolution FFT-based measurements and
a rich set of markers. Analyze time domain
signal quality using pulse-timing features,
robust trigger controls, CCDF, and more.
Use analog demodulation to characterize
AM, FM and PM behavior.
Complex stimulus-response measurements enable plotting of one signal versus
another for results like AM/AM, AM/PM
and gain compression. Automatic time
alignment, amplitude normalization and
phase error compensation greatly simplify
measurement setup. As the industry’s only
solution to correlate baseband and RF
signals, the 89600 VSA software is ideal
for characterizing envelope tracking power
ampliier and power supply designs.
Complex stimulus-response measurements analyze envelope tracking power ampliier and power
supply signals together, providing envelope/RF time alignment and shaping information.
Catch short-lived signal events
using sophisticated displays and
triggering
The digital persistence, cumulative history and spectrogram displays are useful
for viewing signal amplitude and frequency behavior over time and identifying
infrequently occurring events. Capture
elusive signals with lexible magnitude
and external triggers, as well as frequency
mask trigger with real-time enabled PXA
and MXA signal analyzers. Initiate measurements or recordings based on trigger
conditions to analyze and thoroughly characterize dynamic signals.
Powerful visualization and triggering tools highlight subtle and transient events like this radio turn-on
event.

the most data in each trace. A docking
manager tool lets you position traces
anywhere within the 89600 VSA software
display window. Multiple display windows
can be created to manage a large number
of results or take advantage of multiple
monitors.
Record and analyze your signals
in detail
Especially useful in early R&D, you can
capture transient events, compare signal
outputs after design iterations, or share
the signal for collaborative analysis with
remote colleagues. Additional tools, like
overlap processing, let you effectively
“slow down” the apparent measurement
for more in-depth analysis.
Show unlimited traces, each with unlimited markers, wherever and however you need them.
Overlay related traces or hide them. Undock a window and place it anywhere on your desktop

Simultaneously create, conigure, and execute multiple
measurements
The new, innovative multi-measurement
capability is now standard in the 89600
VSA software. The multi-measurement
capability allows you to conigure, execute
and display several measurements at
once, simplifying and speeding analysis
of multi-carrier or multi-format devices,
simultaneous uplink and downlink signals,
or single signals compared at multiple test
points (baseband, IF, RF). When all signals
are spaced to it within an instrument’s
analysis bandwidth, measurements are
perfectly simultaneous. For wider frequency coverage, the VSA software can coordinate two or more independent instruments
to acquire all desired signals. You can
also conigure the data acquisition mode
from synchronous (default) or sequenced
to speed up measurement switching time
from one to another.
Multi-measurements in action: Traces A and B provide a composite spectrum overlaid with the CCDF
statistics for the combined waveform. Traces C and F show a GSM signal. Traces D and G outline a
W-CDMA downlink signal and Traces E and H analyze an LTE downlink signal.
Channel coniguration wizard lets you view and map hardware channels to multiple measurements.

Software Features
Basic VSA (Option 200)
Note: The following features are independent of hardware platform used, unless otherwise noted.
Time and waveform
Time record characteristics
In the 89600 VSA software, measurements are based on time records. A time record is a block
of samples of the signal waveform from which time, frequency, and modulation domain data is
derived.
Data mode
Two signal processing modes, baseband and zoom, affect the appearance and the duration of input
waveforms displayed.
Zoom
Measurements are made with non-zero start frequency. Time domain display shows a complex envelope
representation of the input signal, i.e. the magnitude and phase of the signal relative to the analyzer’s
center frequency.
Baseband
Measurements begin at 0 Hz. The input signal is directly digitized and the waveform display shows the
entire signal (carrier plus modulation), much as an oscilloscope would.
Time record length (main time)
(Number of frequency points – 1)
Span with RBW mode set to arbitrary, auto-coupled
Time sample resolution
1/(k x span)
Where:
k = 2.56 for time data mode set to baseband
k = 1.28 for all other modes (default) including zoom
Span = Currently selected frequency span
Time recording characteristics
In recording (time capture) mode the incoming waveform is captured gap-free into high-speed time
capture memory. This data may then be replayed at full or reduced speed, saved to mass storage, or
transferred to another software application.
When time analyzing the captured waveform, users may adjust measurement
span and center frequency in order to zoom in on a signal, as long as the new measurement span lies
entirely within the originally captured span.
Time recording memory size
Memory size is dependent on the hardware used. See hardware speciications for more information.
Resolution bandwidth (RBW)
RBW values
The range of available RBW choices is a function of the selected frequency span and the number of calculated frequency points. Users may step through the available range in a 1-3-10 sequence or directly
enter an arbitrarily chosen bandwidth.
Range
< 1 Hz to > 0.287 x Max Span
RBW shape factor
The window choices below allow the user to optimize the RBW shape as needed for best amplitude accuracy, best dynamic range, or best response to transient signal characteristics.

The 89600 VSA software can run both inside an X-Series analyzer platform or on an external PC connected
to the analyzer via LAN. Installing the 89600 VSA software into the analyzer enables its use with a connected
mouse and keyboard via USB2.0. When the software is run in a remote PC, use of a LAN crossover cable, LAN
hub, or LAN switch is required and allows the transfer of data from the signal analyzer.
PC requirements
Visit www.agilent.com/find/89600-pc
Note: When running the 89600 VSA software inside the X-Series instrument, you can gain immediate, direct access to all of the signal analyzer’s features
by pressing [Mode] on the analzyer, using Control > Disconnect on the 89600 VSA software’s command toolbar, or closing the 89600 VSA software. When
running the 89600 VSA software on a remote PC connected to the analyzer, you can use the same disconnect command or close the application.
You can upgrade!
