NI Releases Enhanced Version of VirtualBench All-in-One Instrument

New model delivers additional functionality for engineers using benchtop test equipment

(PresseBox) ( Austin, Texas, )
NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced today a new, high-performance model of VirtualBench. The software-based VirtualBench all-in-one instrument combines a mixed-signal oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, programmable DC power supply and digital I/O. With 350 MHz of bandwidth, four analog channels and Ethernet connectivity, the new version of VirtualBench offers increased functionality for engineers characterizing and debugging new designs or automated test systems.

“Since we introduced VirtualBench to the marketplace, its versatility and practicality have created considerable efficiencies for users,” said Stefanie Breyer, vice president of R&D, data acquisition at NI. “With this next iteration, we incorporated greater performance and more features that open up even more possibilities for engineers interacting with benchtop test equipment.”

Users still interact with VirtualBench through free upgradable software applications that run on PCs or iPads for an easy, unified software experience for all five instruments. Because VirtualBench uses today’s consumer computing platforms, engineers and scientists interact with their instruments using multitouch displays, multicore processors, wireless connectivity and intuitive interfaces for increased productivity. Simplification and increased capability through software leads to more efficient circuit debugging and validation.

Key Benefits
  • Enhanced mixed-signal oscilloscope with protocol analysis delivers 350 MHz of bandwidth and four analog channels for higher performance interactive test
  • Higher wattage programmable DC power supply with up to 3 A for the 6 V output channel and up to 1 A for the 25 V and -25 V channels for higher current applications
  • Convenient, unified view of all five instruments, visualization on larger displays and quick functionality to save data and screenshots
  • Ethernet connectivity in addition to USB and WiFi compatibility for distributed measurements
  • Integrates seamlessly with LabVIEW system design software
