At the heart of the National Instruments microwave platform is a passion for innovation and truly efficient systems, leveraging advances in instrumentation, computing, open source software, and related industries to find new, efficient ways to solve problems. Thus, the graphical development of systems using LabVIEW and the active use of FPGAs to accelerate and expand the capabilities of radio electronic equipment allows us to produce such revolutionary solutions as the NI VST vector transceiver, a testing system for ultra-multichannel radio systems and a fifth-generation communication prototyping and prototyping system.
The versatility of the National Instruments hardware and software platform helps engineers and scientists around the world to solve the most complex problems of our time in various branches of science and technology. On the other hand, National Instruments uses knowledge and experience from various industries to create more efficient solutions in each of them.
Today National Instruments is a recognized leader in innovation in microwave instrumentation, development and prototyping of radio systems of the future, testing of modern electronic components and solving complex electronic problems.
One platform, many standards
National Instruments measurement systems are based on the idea of combining functional testing technologies of the most widely used wireless standards in one measurement platform. The use of PCI Express bus, multi-core processors, as well as large RAID arrays makes National Instruments radio measuring systems one of the most high-performance in the world.
RF signal generators
PXI RF signal generators generate modulated RF signals up to 40 GHz and up to 200 MHz from hard disk or memory banks. Thanks to their ability to program in the LabVIEW environment, they have the unmatched functionality and flexibility needed to solve automation and test problems.
▪RF signal conditioning up to 20 GHz
▪Instantaneous bandwidth up to 1 GHz
▪Modulated signal conditioning AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, MSK, GMSK, PSK, QPSK, PAM, QAM
▪Up to 512 MB of internal memory
▪Playback and generation of signals from hard disk
▪Frequency agility and power with QuickSyn® technology and RF List Mode
RF List Mode
▪Allows you to create a list of signal generator settings (power level, frequency, signal generation interval) for automated generation of a sequence of RF signals with different frequencies and different power levels
▪Fast switching between signal generation modes - less than 1 ms
