Kurzbeschreibung

The R&S®SMW-K501 extended sequencing option can be used manually via sequencing lists and waveform segments or via the R&S®Pulse Sequencer Software and its options R&S®SMW-K300 and R&S®SMW-K301.

If used with the R&S®Pulse Sequencer Software and its options, the software calculates all required signals and required sequencing lists and transfers them to the signal generator. Continuous wave signals, unmodulated rectangular CW pulses and pulses with linear frequency modulation or Barker codes are calculated in realtime inside the R&S®SMW200A. Also pre-calculated waveform segments can be used with these sequencing lists. Changes of amplitude, offset frequency, pulse width, offset phase and off time are always applied in realtime as defined by the sequencing list. The start time of the signal generation process is defined by a relative time stamp with time of arrival (ToA) information. In user mode, the R&S®SMW-K501 option allows sequencing of waveform segments by using user defined XML sequencing lists. It supports loops, nested loops and repetitions, enabling ultralong playtimes. In both cases, memory requirements are reduced to a minimum and playtime is increased enormously.
