The National Instruments PXI-5422 is a 200 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator featuring 16-bit resolution and up to 512 MB of onboard memory in a compact, 1 slot 3U PXI module. Because the NI PXI-5422 uses the PCI-based PXI platform, waveforms can be downloaded at up to 84 MB/s, far faster than traditional GPIB-based instruments. Using the Synchronization and Memory Core (SMC) architecture of the PXI-5422, you can create mixed-signal test systems by synchronizing the generator with digitizers and digital waveform generator/analyzers or synchronize multiple arbitrary waveform generators to form a phase-coherent multichannel generator.
