What Are PXI Oscilloscopes?

PXI Oscilloscopes are flexible, software‐defined instruments that are versatile enough for both time‐ and frequency‐domain measurements and feature numerous triggering modes, deep onboard memory, and a driver software API that includes data streaming and analysis functions.

Automated Measurements

NI’s oscilloscopes include an interactive soft front panel for full out-of-the-box functionality and a best-in-class API for automated measurements with full control over numerous measurement types, trigger modes, vertical and horizontal settings, and more.

High-Speed Oscilloscopes

NI’s high-speed oscilloscopes feature wide dynamic range ADCs and achieve a low noise floor and high measurement accuracy. This portfolio is led by the PXIe-5162, which features four interleaved ADCs that sample up to 5 GS/s with 1.5 GHz of analog bandwidth.

High-Resolution Oscilloscopes

NI’s high-resolution oscilloscopes feature high channel density and high measurement resolution. With 14-bit resolution and a user-programmable Xilinx FPGA, this portfolio can be customized for test and measurement applications in industries ranging from semiconductor to aerospace and defense.

Deep Onboard Memory

PXI Oscilloscopes feature deep onboard memory, capable of storing multiple acquisitions from single channels or parallel acquisitions from multiple channels on the same device, and also benefit from the high-speed streaming capabilities of the PXI platform.
