National Instruments 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 VST and extends their default capabilities.
National Instruments announced the NI PXIe-5162 digitizer and updates to the LabVIEW Jitter Analysis Toolkit. The digitizer provides high-speed measurements at four times the vertical resolution of a traditional 8-bit oscilloscope.
National Instruments announced its acquisition of Dresden, Germany-based Signalion GmbH. The acquisition delivers strong wireless communications talent and technologies to the NI platform, which are critical to NI’s goal to continue to drive long term growth in the communications test industry.
The NI PXIe-5186 digitizer, co-developed by National Instruments and Tektronix, delivers a new level of performance in the small-form-factor, low-power PXI platform. Tektronix technology provides the trusted measurement fidelity of Tektronix oscilloscopes. The digital back end uses NI synchronization and memory core (SMC) technology to deliver high-data throughput at rates greater than 700 MB/s.
National Instruments released its Automated Test Outlook 2013 highlighting the company’s research into the latest test and measurement technologies and methodologies. The report examines trends affecting a variety of industries.
National Instruments (NI) announces the acquisition of NMDG, a company with more than 20 years of experience and technology in high-frequency stimulus-response and large-scale network analysis measurements, effective October 15, 2012.
National Instruments introduced test solutions for 802.11ac WLAN and Bluetooth low-energy technology that combine NI graphical system design software and modular, FPGA-based PXI instrumentation to provide high-performance test capabilities that are completely user-programmable. These test solutions along with other cellular, navigation and wireless connectivity solutions from NI, help engineers thoroughly test their devices on a single high-performance platform.
National Instruments introduced NI LabVIEW 2012, the latest version of its system design software. Users gain ready-to-run starting points for a breadth of LabVIEW applications and access to new training options that help improve the quality of their systems.
