What Is InstrumentStudio™ Software?

Monitor displaying test data using InstrumentStudio

InstrumentStudio is application software that provides an integrated approach to interactive PXI measurements, the ability to monitor and debug test systems, and streamlined connections to automated test applications.

Product Features

Integrated, Interactive Measurements

Monitor displaying multiple test measurements using InstrumentStudio

InstrumentStudio software provides an integrated environment for instrument configuration that simplifies quick, interactive measurements and augments automated production test systems.

  • Interact with multiple instruments simultaneously on intuitive, customizable front panels
  • Monitor and debug automated test systems by taking control of API directly from InstrumentStudio
  • Connect a wide range of DC, analog, digital, RF, and NI instruments
  • Export instrument configurations to your choice of API
  • Access RFmx Spectral Analysis and other wireless standards like 5G, WLAN, and Bluetooth

Why InstrumentStudio?

What Can I Do with InstrumentStudio?

Streamline workflows from interactive bring-up to automated characterization with an interactive front panel that can be customized and exported for a fast transition to automated characterization. Speed up time to first measurement with a wide range of instruments including DC, analog, digital, RF, and third-party instruments with an open and scalable interface. Minimize duplicate work and quickly transition to automated test by exporting code to automation and debugging automated test applications directly from the InstrumentStudio front panel.
