Keysight Technologies Inc. has introduced what it boasts as the industry's first PXI open radio test reference solution and a radio test audio library for military and public safety radios. According to the company, the Keysight Reference Solution allows engineers to quickly evaluate and integrate core radio test measurement capabilities into validation, production or depot test systems.

Designers and manufacturers of radio equipment face the challenge of combining novel technologies, multiple channels and wider bandwidths, with legacy standards that need to be supported over long periods of time. The radio test reference solution provides flexibility, modularity and upgradability to allow additional features and increased performance to be added without changing the entire test system.

In addition to traditional analogue and digital radio standards, the reference solution supports standards-based signal creation and analysis for modern communications standards. This includes LTE for next generation public safety radios, which provides wider data bandwidth. It also generates and analyses custom waveforms, and supports advanced capabilities such as spurious emission measurements up to 27GHz.

Hardware options range from the affordable M9290A CXA-m signal analyser to the high performance M9393A performance vector signal analyser. Software options include Keysight's X-series measurement applications, supporting a common set of standard measurements for AM, FM and digital radio, such as APCO P25 and TETRA signals. The M9560A radio test audio library accelerates audio signal generation and analysis.

The Keysight M9560A Radio Test Audio Library with option 1TP is available and priced at $4,000. Pricing for the Radio Test Reference Solution is based on a customer's specific test system requirements.
