Description

Included Software

NI-RFSA 14.1—This software installation provides support for customers using NI RF vector signal analyzers or the RF input subsystem of vector signal transceivers (VSTs). To program the NI RF vector signal analyzer or NI RF VST, use the NI-RFSA API. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF vector signal analyzer or vector signal transceiver.


NI-RSFG 14.0.1—This software installation provides support for customers using NI RF signal generators or the RF output subsystem of vector signal transceivers (VSTs). To program the NI RF signal generator or NI RF VST, use the NI-RFSG API. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF signal generator or vector signal transceiver.

NI LabVIEW 2014 Instrument Design Libraries for Vector Signal Transceivers 14.0—This software installation provides support for customers who want to program the FPGA on NI RF VSTs using LabVIEW 2014. To program the FPGA on the VST, use the instrument design libraries and the LabVIEW 2014 FPGA Module. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI RF vector signal transceiver.

NI LabVIEW 2014 Instrument Design Libraries for IF Digitizers 14.0—This software installation provides support for customers who want to program the FPGA on the NI PXIe-5624R (NI 5624R) IF digitizer using LabVIEW 2014. To program the FPGA on the NI 5624R, use the instrument design libraries and the LabVIEW 2014 FPGA Module. The getting started guide for your device provides information about how to install, configure, test, and begin using an NI 5624R IF digitizer.

NI-RFmx SpecAn 1.2—This software installation provides support for customers who want to use NI-RFmx Spectral Analyzers Measurement functions in LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, C, and .NET environments.

NI-RFmx Demod 1.2—This software installation provides support for customers who want to use NI-RFmx Demodulation functions in LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, C, and .NET environments.

Modulation Toolkit (LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI)—This software installation provides additional modulation scheme software functionality for customers using NI RF vector signal generators, NI arbitrary waveform generators, NI RF vector signal analyzers, and NI high-speed digitizers.

Spectral Measurements Toolkit (LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI)—This software installation provides additional spectral measurement software functionality for customers using NI RF vector signal analyzers and NI high-speed digitizers.

Installation Instructions

Caution  Before you install NI-RFmx SpecAn 1.2 or NI-RFmx Demond 1.2, ensure that you have uninstalled all related NI-RFmx SpecAn 1.0 and NI-RFmx Demod 1.0 products. Refer to your product-specific readme file for more information about product-specific uninstallation instructions.

When you insert the driver software DVD, the NI RF Device Drivers window appears. In this window, click Install RF Driver Software to begin installation. If the NI RF Device Drivers window does not appear, launch autorun.exe from the root directory of the driver software DVD.

System Requirements

This installation requires one of the following Microsoft operating systems:

  • Windows 8.1 (32-bit or 64-bit) *
  • Windows 8.0 (32-bit or 64-bit) *
  • Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows Vista (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (32-bit)
  • Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit) **
  • Windows Server 2008 R2

* For VST devices, LabVIEW FPGA compilation tools cannot be executed on a machine running Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.0. Refer to Cannot Compile FPGA VIs on a Windows 8 Computer for more information.

** Visit KnowledgeBase 54D9I6M6 for additional information about known issues using National Instruments driver software on Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit).

This installation requires that version 3.1 of the MSI (Windows Installer) Engine is installed on your computer. If you do not have MSI 3.1 or later, the installer updates the engine automatically and may require you to restart your computer.

Refer to your product-specific readme file for additional requirements.

Installation Instructions

  1. Download and Extract RFDRVSUITE201502.zip into a temporary location.
  2. Launch setup.exe

To conserve disk space you can delete the downloaded .zip file, however it is recommended that you keep the extracted installation files in case you need to add features from the NI-RFSA distribution in the future, or plan to create your own installers using National Instruments development environments.
