Samples per symbol determine the acquisition bandwidth. The bandwidth occupied by the transmitted signal is based on the modulation type, symbol rate, and pulse-shaping filter used. To successfully perform demodulation, the analyzer must acquire the complete bandwidth. The analyzer uses the following equations to acquire the bandwidth.
Acquisition Bandwidth = 0.8 * Acquisition Sample Rate
Acquisition Sample Rate= Min(Samples per Symbol * Symbol Rate, Max Device I/Q Rate)
If Samples per Symbol is not specified or is set to Auto (-1), the analyzer uses the values shown in the following table.
