NI’s second-generation PXI Vector Signal Transceiver (VST) offers 1 GHz of instantaneous RF bandwidth for signal generation and analysis. The PXIe-5840 VST combines a 6.5 GHz RF vector signal generator, 6.5 GHz vector signal analyzer, user-programmable Virtex-7 690T FPGA, and high-speed serial interface into a single 2-slot PXI module. Built on the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O (RIO) architecture, it delivers programming flexibility and cutting-edge RF hardware to help you meet the most challenging RF applications.
The latest VST is ideally suited for a wide range of RF and wireless test applications such as 802.11ac/ax device testing, cellular device testing including future 5G standard, RFIC characterization, and radar prototyping.
See how the new VST compares to traditional rack-and-stack instruments in performance, speed, and flexibility.
The VST has frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 6.5 GHz, up to 1 GHz of bandwidth, and a user-programmable FPGA.
You can use the VST to make fast and accurate WLAN 802.11ac/ax measurements.
Qualcomm achieved a 200X improvement in measurement speed using the VST.
