RF engineers require faster, more accurate, and more flexible test solutions to address the rapidly evolving requirements for RF and wireless test applications. The NI PXI platform is perfectly suited to meet these needs because it combines NI RF measurement software with high-performance instrumentation to measure physical layer performance. NI’s wireless test solutions support all major cellular standards, from GSM to LTE-Advanced, as well as Bluetooth, GPS/GLONASS, and wireless connectivity ranging from 802.11a to 802.11ax. In addition, by using NI-RFmx SpecAn and Demod personalities, you can perform advanced measurements such as digital predistortion and evaluate nonstandard digital modulation formats such as 4096 QAM.
NI provides easy-to-use soft front panel applications for benchtop or interactive use in addition to highly optimized and intuitive APIs for building automated test applications. NI’s RF measurement software builds on the PXI platform to enable advanced test systems such as the Semiconductor Test System and Wireless Test System.
