AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --National Instruments (Nasdaq:
NATI) today announced 10 pieces of new application IP that enable engineers
and scientists to use NI LabVIEW system design software to build their own
custom RF instruments. This IP integrates with PXI FPGA targets such as the NI
PXIe-5644R vector signal transceiver (VST) and extends their default
capabilities by adding new features or enhancing performance in specific
Each piece of IP is available in a stand-alone package so that users can add
it to one of the default VST personalities and mix and match the relevant
components for their applications. The IP is also prebuilt into examples to
provide immediate access to its functionality. This eliminates the need for
the user to compile the code and subsequently reduces development time. In
addition to VST IP from National Instruments, NI Alliance Partners and
third-party developers are creating IP and developing software add-ons for the
"We use the VST to give our DOCSIS Channel Emulator multiple 'personalities.'
This means we can test both mainstream features and unique corner cases," said
Andy Brown, principal technology engineer at NI Platinum Alliance Partner
Averna. "With the power, flexibility and compact size of the VST, we can
deliver easy-to-use tools that help our customers test and troubleshoot their
Examples of IP
oHardware power servoing for RF amplifier test
oRF channel impairments including fading, noise, multipath and Doppler
oDigital device under test control
oContiguous I/Q waveform streaming to and from disk
