Version:
    Last Modified: December 14, 2017

    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

    Specifications are valid under the following conditions unless otherwise noted.

    • 30 minute warm-up time before operation
    • 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.
    • NI-RFSA 2.6 or later is used

    • 1 The preselector filter band selection is based on the center frequency tuning range. The lowest frequency preselector band is selected at the band-crossing frequencies.
    • 2 Passband Frequency Range is the calibrated range of the Preselector Filter Band.
    • 3 Notch filter bands are a cascade of a preselector filter and a notch filter. Stopband rejection specifications for the preselector filter band apply in the notch filter bands.
    • 4 Gain is the maximum PXIe-5693 gain setting.
    • 5 Control the PXIe-5693 module gain by setting the reference level and the IF output power level. The module gain is defined by the following equation: Module Gain = IF Output Power Level - Reference Level.
    • 6 Gain range is the difference between the maximum and minimum PXIe-5693 module gain settings.
    • 7 The downconverter gain value is read-only when using NI-RFSA. Gain accuracy is the difference between the value reported by NI-RFSA and the measured gain.
    • 8 Noise figure verification uses the maximum PXIe-5693 module gain with the preamplifier enabled.
    • 9 Settled to within <0.1 dB of final amplitude.
    • 10 The values in this table were obtained from two -30 dBm tones spaced 700 kHz apart and the preselector set to the maximum PXIe-5693 module gain with the preamplifier enabled.
    • 11 Two -10 dBm tones spaced 700 kHz apart and the preselector set to the maximum PXIe-5693 module gain with the preamplifier disabled.
    • 12 The external filter path uses an external 3-inch RF coaxial cable connected between the EXT FILTER IN and the EXT FILTER OUT connectors on the PXIe-5693.
    • 13 Two -25 dBm tones placed outside the preselector passband such that the third-order intermodulation product falls in-band. Preselector set to maximum module gain and preamplifier enabled.
    • 14 Two -5 dBm tones placed outside the preselector passband such that the third-order intermodulation product falls in-band. Preselector set to maximum module gain and preamplifier disabled.
    • 15 Single tone, power at RF IN connector at -5 dBm (preamplifier disabled) or -25 dBm (preamplifier enabled). For each preselector filter band, the tone frequency is set to the maximum center frequency tune range frequency divided by 2.
    • 16 The gain compression measurement uses a two-tone desensitization method with an input referred power level and maximum module gain. This method places two tones within the preselector filter center frequency range. The lower amplitude tone power is set to -30 dBm with the preamplifier disabled and -50 dBm with the preamplifier enabled. The amplitude variation for the lower amplitude tone level cannot be great than 1 dB, as the higher amplitude tone power is increased from low power to the 1 dB gain compression specified input power.
    • 17 23 °C ± 5 °C. Applies only to the RF OUT connector with the RF IN connector terminated. Measurements use the maximum gain setting and calibration signal disabled.
    • 18 Calibration signal disabled.
    • 19 Center frequency set to device center frequency.
    • 20 Calibration tone power is referenced to the RF IN connector and is reported by the NI-RFSA Cal Tone Power Referred to RF IN property. The calibration tone power is measured using an RF substitution technique that compares the RF power of a calibrated source as measured at the RF OUT connector with the calibration tone signal at the RF OUT connector.
