Before you can program your PXIe-5673E Vector Signal Generator, you must create an association between the individual hardware modules to control them as a single RF device.
After launching LabVIEW NXG, complete the following steps to associate your hardware modules.
When you associate modules in SystemDesigner, the changes are automatically reflected in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX). You can alternatively associate your modules in MAX.
- Open the Live view in SystemDesigner.
On the diagram, select the PXIe-5611 IQ Modulator for your vector signal generator.
On the Item tab in the Configuration pane, expand Configure vector signal generator.
Select the appropriate hardware module from each system component drop-down listbox.
Once you associate all the modules, your vector signal generator model displays underneath the label of the I/Q modulator on the Live view.
Select Not Specified if you do not want to associate a specific module with the I/Q modulator. Select External if you want to use an external module, such as a third-party LO, with your I/Q modulator.
