Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Lab 5: Testing

Summary: You will configure a Hewlett Packard 89440A Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) to display a quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) constellation or a signal spectrum.

Introduction

The vector signal analyzer (VSA) is an instrument capable of demodulating digital signals. You may use the VSA to demodulate a QPSK signal and display the symbol constellation. The VSA will also display the signal spectrum.

Plug the output from the DSP board into the "Channel 1" jack on the front of the vector signal analyzer and turn on the analyzer. The next two sections explain how to set up the VSA to display the constellation or the signal spectrum.

Displaying the constellation

To display your QPSK constellation, enter the following key sequence:

  • "Freq" button, followed by F1 (center), 11.025 (on the keypad), and F3 (KHz)
  • F2 (span), 22, and F3 (KHz)
  • "Range," then F5 (ch1 autorange up/down)
  • "Instrument Mode," then F3 (demodulation)

Displaying the signal spectrum

The VSA is capable of displaying the spectrum of a signal. Connect the output of your transmitter output to the VSA. Enter "Instrument Mode" and then F1 (Scalar) to see the spectrum.
