Can the 89601B VSA analyzer clustered SC-FDMA signals?

I have an LTE-Advanced uplink signal with clustered SC-FDMA and I want to see how the peak to average ratio is compared to my LTE SC-FDMA signal. Can this be done?

Hi Gladys -
Yes, clustered SC-FDMA increases peak-to-average power ratio compared to pure SC-FDMA used in LTE, leading to transmitter linearity issues.
The 89601B LTE-Advanced modulation analysis option allows you to configure multiple clusters of PUSCH signal. You can then perform CCDF (Complementary Cumulative Distribution Function) measurement to quantify the peak-to-average power ratio, or crest factor.
The VSA software also allows you to make modulation quality measurement such as EVM and frequency error on a clustered SC-FDMA signal.
