Keithley Instruments, Inc. (Cleveland, OH) has expanded its SignalMeister™ software platform to include RF signal analysis along with RF signal generation. SignalMeister software integrates signal generation and analysis into one package and has the capability of generating and analyzing both single-input single-output (SISO) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) signals in the same environment. With SignalMeister software, engineers can quickly and easily create and analyze signals with a block diagram-based, graphical user interface. The SignalMeister RF Communications Toolkit supports the latest wireless, MIMO protocol standards, WiMAX Wave 2, and 802.11n WLAN. It also provides additional complex functionality such as WLAN channel modeling, beam-forming, simulation studies, and full utilities for data import and export.

SignalMeister software is a next-generation RF communications toolkit that lets engineers create and analyze the highly complex signals required for RF testing needs. The expandable software platform allows creation of waveforms from multiple signal standards with optional additive signal impairments and channel modeling in a single development environment. SignalMeister software allows MIMO signals to be created and analyzed as easily as SISO signals, simplifying the task of MIMO testing for manufacturers developing and supplying mobile phones, wireless infrastructure, and RF chip sets in both production and R&D environments.
