Ted Rappaport, founding director of NYU WIRELESS and a leading proponent of using the millimeter wave spectrum for wireless communications, discusses the FCC's recent rulemaking actions and technology developments that are paving the way to 5G.
NI announced the NI PXIe-4081 7½-digit high-performance DMM and 1.8 MS/s isolated digitizer. The NI PXIe-4081 is the first PXI Express DMM available. It offers engineers the flexibility, resolution and isolation needed to tackle challenging applications that require smarter test systems. The NI PXIe-4081 is the industry’s most accurate 7½-digit DMM, with an industry-leading 15 ppm accuracy for DC V measurements up to two years after calibration.
The NI PXIe-5668R vector signal analyzer (VSA) offers 765 MHz of bandwidth with best-in-class measurement performance and speed. This high-performance microwave signal analyzer meets the challenging requirements of applications such as wireless communications, radio frequency integrated circuit characterization, RADAR test, and spectrum monitoring and signal intelligence.
Gain the flexibility you need to build a measurement system that meets your application-specific requirements. The CompactDAQ controllers integrate a processor and removable SD storage with high-quality signal conditioned measurements and digital, counter, and communication bus I/O in a small, rugged enclosure. You can reduce system cost and complexity while increasing accuracy.
National Instruments UK & Irelandwill host industry experts and test professionals at the Automated Test Summit 2014 on 19th June at the Madejski Stadium, Reading, UK. The event will allow delegates to learn about the top trends and technologies influencing automated test through informative presentations, technical discussions and ten hours of hands-on training.
National Instruments announced an integrated software defined radio solution for rapidly prototyping high-performance, multichannel wireless communication systems. The NI USRP RIO platform is built on the NI LabVIEW RIO architecture and combines a high-performance 2 x 2 multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) RF transceiver capable of transmitting and receiving signals from 50 MHz to 6 GHz with an open LabVIEW programmable FPGA architecture.
The NI PXIe-7975R FPGA module features a digital signal processing (DSP)-focused Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA and 2 GB/s of onboard DDR3 DRAM. This FPGA incorporates 1,540 DSP slices, which you can use to implement digital filters, custom signal processing, and Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) logic, all of which are commonly found on analog FPGA-based instruments.
