Key facts

The R&S®VSE-K96 OFDM analysis software adds the capability to include modulation measurements on general OFDM signals. The OFDM demodulator is user-configurable and standard-independent.

The software analyzes OFDM signals that are either userdefined or compliant with standards such as IEEE802.11a/ g/n/ac (WLAN) and DVB-T. Moreover, it supports development engineers in the analysis of proprietary signals in the initial phases of forthcoming OFDM standards. This includes the following:

  • Wizard with a step-by-step guide for easy setup of the configuration file from a captured signal
  • Support of OFDM and OFDMA
  • Support of any PSK or QAM modulation format (up to 4096QAM)

Features & Benefits

  • User-configurable and standard-independent

    The software offers a high degree of freedom when it comes to measurement parameters.

    User-definable OFDM parameters:

    • General OFDM parameters such as signal bandwidth, sample rate, FFT length, cyclic prefix length
    • Preamble structure
    • Position of the pilots and data carriers
    • Modulation format of the data carriers
    • Flexible assignment of cyclic prefix length (e.g. for LTE)
  • Configuration file wizard to quickly extract all necessary parameters from a signal

    The integrated wizard guides users through the process of creating a configuration file that describes the OFDM system. It allows users to extract the necessary parameters directly from a signal recorded by the R&S®VSE-K96 software and creates a matching configuration file. At the same time, it visualizes the structure of the signal.
