The NI PXI-5670 is a modular 2.7 GHz RF vector signal generator (VSG) with the power and flexibility needed for use in product development from design through manufacturing. The PXI-5670 provides true 16-bit resolution arbitrary waveform generation at 100 MS/s (400 MS/s with interpolation), up to 512 MB of memory, and 20 MHz real-time bandwidth. It can generate custom and standard modulation formats including AM, FM, PM, ASK, FSK, MSK, GMSK, PSK, QPSK, PAM, and QAM.

The NI LabVIEW Modulation Toolkit accompanies the PXI-5670, providing functions and tools for signal generation, analysis, visualization, and processing of standard and custom digital and analog modulation formats.

The combined functionality of the PXI-5670 and the LabVIEW Modulation Toolkit delivers a highly flexible and powerful solution for scientific research, communications, consumer electronics, aerospace/defense, and semiconductor test applications as well as for emerging areas such as software-defined radio, radio-frequency identification (RFID), and wireless sensor networks.

System Assurance Programs

Reduce your setup time and total cost of ownership, and get a system you can use out of the box with National Instruments system assurance programs. System assurance programs include:

  • Installation and integration test of all individual hardware
  • Courtesy installation of system driver sets and application development environments
  • Extended warranty and calibration coverage for up to five years
  • Custom documentation plus a custom restore and startup utility

This service is only available for PXI, NI CompactRIO, and NI Compact FieldPoint systems.

Extended Warranties

National Instruments designs and manufactures all products to minimize failures, however unexpected failures can still occur. Extended warranties provide a fixed economical price at the time of system purchase, covering any repair costs for up to three years. In addition, they offer the following benefits:

  • Significant cost savings compared to individual repair incidents
  • Fault location, diagnostics, and repair by NI any time the system product fails
  • All parts and labor costs covered as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications

For more information about your warranty options:


NI recognizes the need to maintain properly calibrated devices for high-accuracy measurements. NI provides manual calibration procedures, services to recalibrate your products, and automated calibration software to calibrate many NI measurement products.


NI training is the fastest, most certain route to productivity with NI tools and successful application development.

Repair Services

Return your registered product under warranty at no additional labor and parts cost. NI offers fault location, diagnostics, and repair any time the system fails as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications.
