The Export File Type menu is shown in Table: Export File Type.
Export File Type
Anritsu DGZ (IQ Capture)
Select if exporting to an Anritsu DGZ file.
Anritsu WVD
Select when exporting to an Anritsu WVD file (Vector Signal Generator format). Selecting the Anritsu WVD provides two more Export buttons shown below to save the output file directly to an Anritsu MG3700 series signal generator.
If either of these buttons are pressed, the Export Parameter Entry dialog is displayed as shown below. The Pattern name is the file name of the converted file. The User types the pattern name which is then stored as a file in the Package folder location. If they convert from a file with metadata, the Sample Rate will be automatically filled in.
Press Save IQ Data File button to store the IQ data file to a user selected location and can later be exported and opened to the Anritsu signal generator.
Pressing OK in the Export Parameter Entry dialog shows the dialog below to enter the IP address of an MG3700 series signal generator.
Anritsu WCAP (IQ Capture)
Select if exporting to an Anritsu WCAP file.
Select if exporting to an Anritsu.vsg file.
Select if exporting to single raw data file that has IQ values.
Set the bit format as 8 bit, 16 bit, 24 bit, 32 bit Float, or 32 bit Integer.
Set the Endianness as Little Endian or Big Endian.
Set the Text delimiter that appears between the I and Q values as Comma, Tab, or Semicolon. Auto is not an option in the Export File Type menu.
SpectroX XDat File
Select if exporting to a SpectroX Xdat file. The .xdat file format is the file format required for analyses using the X-Com SpectroX software; .xdat files are for use in the SpectroX software. xDat files support 8, 10, 16, and 32 bits. 24-bit files will not be converted.
Wave File

Trim allows a user that may have a large IQ file to demodulate a frame somewhere in the middle. The analysis engine always starts at the beginning of the file. The View mode and the Playback mode both allow the user to locate a point of interest. See Points of Interest. They could then export the file to a new file with the same format (DGZ), trimming to the start value and stop value that it only contains the IQ values they want to analyze.
Trim Start (ms)
Move the slider or manually type a value to set the start of the IQ file.
Trim End (ms)
Move the slider or manually type a value to set the Stop of the IQ file.
