The Noise Figure Measurement Toolkit by 10X Engineering helps you make a noise figure (NF) measurement on NI PXI vector signal analyzers (VSAs) with the Y-factor technique. This technique calculates the noise figure and gain of the device under test (for example, LNAs, mixers, and RX paths). The Y-factor technique is one of the most widely used methods for noise figure measurement because it offers clear realizations and exact measurement results.

Recommended Hardware
We recommend you download the trial version and test it on your system because the toolkit’s measurement results (speed of measurement, ranges, accuracy, and so on) are tightly associated with using the NI VSA, system configuration, and noise source parameters. We recommend the NI PXIe-5665 high-performance VSA for maximal sensitivity. For more information, read the Noise Figure Measurement Toolkit User Manual (included in the installer) or contact 10X Engineering. To learn more about NI VSA hardware, visit
