NI Introduces the Next Evolution of Software-Designed Instrumentation: the 200 MHz Vector Signal Transceiver
Engineers Can Test the Latest Wireless Standards With Greater Speed and Flexibility While Reducing the Overall Cost of Test
NI vector signal transceivers combine a vector signal analyzer with a vector signal generator and a user-programmable FPGA for real-time signal processing and control. Customers have seen 10X to 100X improvements in test time in applications such as power servoing in power amplifier test by taking advantage of the speed, deterministic processing and inherent parallel architecture of the FPGA. Built on the NI LabVIEW RIO architecture, the vector signal transceiver combines programming flexibility and the latest RF hardware to revolutionize mobile technologies test. The NI PXIe-5646R offers 200 MHz of complex bandwidth via a sample rate of 250 MS/s, which is greater than eight times the data rate for the standard LTE radio frame. This makes the vector signal transceiver ideally suited for the latest design and test techniques such as digital predistortion and envelope tracking.
The NI PXIe-5646R is powered by LabVIEW system design software and provides the ideal platform to simplify modern design and test challenges.
