National Instruments, Austin, TX, has introduced the NI PXIe-5644R RF vector signal transceiver (VST), the first software-designed instrument that combines a vector signal generator and vector signal analyzer with a user-programmable FPGA into a single PXI modular instrument. Engineers can transform the vector signal transceiver into a new instrument or enhance its existing functionality using NI LabVIEW system design software. The VST is suitable for testing wireless and cellular standards such as 802.11ac and LTE. The software-centric architecture enables engineers to use LabVIEW to create open, field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based hardware for their specific needs. The VST features up to 6.0 GHz frequency coverage and 80 MHz instantaneous RF bandwidth, and expands to support multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) configurations or parallel testing in a single PXI chassis.
