New oscilloscope delivers 100 Vpp maximum input range at 1 GS/s and 14 bits
AUSTIN, Texas – October 26, 2016 – NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, today announced the PXIe-5164 oscilloscope. The PXIe-5164 is built on the open, modular PXI architecture, and includes a user-programmable FPGA to help aerospace/defense, semiconductor and research/physics applications that require high-voltage measurements and high levels of amplitude accuracy.
“PXI oscilloscopes from NI reduce test time, increase channel density, and now, deliver even better measurement flexibility with the combination of high bandwidth, resolution and input voltage,” said Steve Warntjes, vice president of R&D at NI. “Our new PXIe-5164 oscilloscope can make some measurements that box instruments today just can’t handle. If you want to measure a high-voltage signal of up to 100 Vpp at up to 1 GS/s, you can now use the same instrument to see small signal details that would normally be hidden by the noise of the instrument thanks to the 14-bit ADC.”
The PXIe-5164 features:
PXI oscilloscopes deliver the ease of use expected from a box oscilloscope. Engineers can use the interactive soft front panels in NI-SCOPE software to make basic measurements, debug automated applications or view the scope data while the test program runs. The driver includes help files, documentation and ready-to-run example programs to assist in test code development, and includes a programming interface that works with a variety of development environments such as C, Microsoft .NET and LabVIEW system design software. Engineers can also use PXI oscilloscopes with TestStand test management software, which simplifies the creation and deployment of test systems in the lab or on the production floor.
PXI oscilloscopes are an important part of the NI platform and ecosystem that engineers can use to build smarter test systems. These test systems benefit from more than 600 PXI products ranging from DC to mmWave and feature high-throughput data movement using PCI Express bus interfaces and sub-nanosecond synchronization with integrated timing and triggering. Supported by a vibrant ecosystem of partners, add-on IP and applications engineers, the NI platform helps to dramatically lower the cost of test, reduce time to market and future-proof testers for tomorrow’s challenging requirements.
