Live Inventory Check:


The DVB-T/H measurement application for the CXA is one of more than 25 measurement applications in the Agilent X-Series, an evolutionary approach to signal analysis that spans instrumentation, measurements, and software, transforming the X-Series signal analyzers into standards-based transmitter testers. The DVB-T/H application provides fast, one-button standards-based power and modulation analysis capabilities to help your design, evaluation, and manufacturing of DVB-T/H modulators, transmitters, amplifiers, tuners, and gap-fillers/repeaters. The measurement application complies with the European-based consortium standard for broadcast transmission of digital terrestrial/handheld television.

RF Transmitters, Modulators, and Components Testing

  • One-button measurement helps improve speed with standard presets and auto detection
  • Multiple modulation quality measurements help test the DUT full performance
  • Advanced settings help R&D customers trouble-shooting
  • Remote SCPI command increase the manufacturing test efficiency

Key Specification

Signal Analysis

  • DVB-T, DVB-H, and DVB-T2 standards
  • Transmitter RF measurement
  • One-button measurements with pass/fail per the standard, plus auto detection
  • Runs inside CXA signal analyzer


  • Power measurement: channel power, shoulder attenuation, ACP, CCDF, spurious emission, SEM
  • Modulation accuracy measurement: constellation, TPS decoding, MER/EVM (MER RMS/peak, MER by subcarriers, MER by data, pilot, BER Only available in DVB-T/H), frequency error, amplitude error, phase error, phase jitter, quadrature error, amplitude imbalance, carrier suppression
  • Channel frequency response and channel impulse response
  • Auto detection or manual settings of the DVB-T, DVB-H, or DVB-T2 signal; provides advanced settings like equalization switch, payload type, demodulation symbols, out-of-band filtering, clock rate, and BER count


  • Power accuracy: up to ±0.61 dB (95th percentile)
  • Shoulder attenuation dynamic range: up to 84.6 dB (91.8 dB typical)
  • MER floor: 43 dB (2K mode and 64QAM with Data EQ off for DVB-T, nominal); 43 dB (32K mode, 256 QAM, Constellation rotation Yes with EQ Off for DVB-T2, nominal)
  • Analysis bandwidth: 10 MHz
