The first release of the digital Signal Analyzer
is capable of testing a wide range of waveforms such as DVB-T, DVB-H, CMMB, DTMB, ATSC, ISDB-T/Tb.
By contrast, a synthetic stimulus and digital signal analyzer
for analysis require an order of magnitude less time per measurement and deliver equivalent results (or better) with greater repeatability.
One way of doing this is to use a "down converter" between the receiver and a digital signal analyzer
in order to convert the signal to a suitable frequency for the analyzer (Figure 3).
In addition to the LabVIEW nominations, a National Instruments CompactRIO digital signal analyzer
(DSA) was named a finalist in the Digital Rapid Prototyping Tools subcategory.
