Version:
    Last Modified: April 4, 2018

    Definitions

    Warranted specifications describe the performance of a model under stated operating conditions and are covered by the model warranty.

    The following characteristic specifications describe values that are relevant to the use of the model under stated operating conditions but are not covered by the model warranty.

    • Typical specifications describe the performance met by a majority of models.
    • Typical-95 specifications describe the performance met by 95% (≈2σ) of models with a 95% confidence.
    • Nominal specifications describe an attribute that is based on design, conformance testing, or supplemental testing.

    Specifications are Warranted unless otherwise noted.

    Conditions

    Warranted specifications are valid under the following conditions unless otherwise noted.

    • Over ambient temperature ranges of 0 °C to 55 °C.
    • 30 minutes warm-up time.
    • Calibration cycle maintained.
    • Chassis fan speed set to High. NI recommends using slot blockers and EMC filler panels in empty module slots to minimize temperature drift and reduce emissions.
    • NI-RFSA instrument driver is used.

    Typical specifications are valid under the following conditions unless otherwise noted.

    • Over ambient temperature ranges of 23 °C ± 5 °C.
