The NI PXI-5441 is a 100 MS/s arbitrary waveform generator with onboard signal processing (OSP). OSP functions include FIR and CIC interpolation filters, digital prefilter gain and offset control, a numerically controlled oscillator (NCO), and I/Q mixing for quadrature digital upconversion. With 16-bit resolution and -91 dBc close-in spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR), the PXI-5441 delivers instrument-quality specifications to applications requiring digital upconversion and baseband interpolation such as prototyping, validating, and testing communications, radar, and electronic warfare systems. Because the PXI-5441 is a full-featured arbitrary waveform generator, it is capable of generating general-purpose electrical test signals and has a maximum output range of 12 Vpp into a 50 Ω load.
