A Note from the Editor

National Instruments may be best known through the RF/microwave world’s test labs for LabVIEW, its flagship software product that provides a platform for developing automated data acquisition systems and the modular instruments that perform actual RF tests. Recently, through internal R&D and acquisitions, the company has been growing its RF solutions to provide more capabilities and performance in test hardware operating at RF frequencies and above. With the acquisition AWR and the RF EDA platform, Microwave Office, NI has also pushed its solution further upstream in the overall design process.
