Keithley Instruments Inc. has released the SignalMeister Waveform Creation Software for its RF vector signal generators. SignalMeister is a free PC-based software tool that creates arbitrary waveform (ARB) files that can be downloaded to Keithley's Model 2910 RF vector signal generator.

The first signal generation library for the SignalMeister software supports the China TD-SCDMA wireless communications standard. All TD-SCDMA signals can be generated in addition to, or in combination with, other technology standard signals already available using a Model 2910 without any hardware modification, said Keithley.

SignalMeister TD-SCDMA waveform signals generated using the Model 2910 have a signal modulation quality characteristic EVM of 0.3 percent. Absolute amplitude accuracy is typically < ±0.3dB to -110dBm (CW), relative accuracy (linearity) is <±0.05dB and repeatability is < ±0.05dB.

The SignalMeister software with TD-SCDMA waveform generation capability is suitable for testing needs of mobile phone manufacturers, RF device manufacturers and mobile phone chipset suppliers in both production and R&D environments, and base station manufacturers.

The 2910-TDSCDMA-PC software license (catalog price of Rs.1.42 lakh ($3,500)) must be loaded on the Model 2910 RF vector signal generator to run SignalMeister TD-SCDMA waveform files. SignalMeister Waveform Creation Software is available now at no charge to Model 2910 users.
