National Instruments introduced the NI PXIe-5665, a 3.6 GHz RF vector signal analyzer (VSA) that delivers high RF performance in a PXI form factor. The new VSA features phase noise, average noise level, amplitude accuracy and dynamic range. The VSA’s PXI platform also facilitates peer-to-peer streaming. It includes a flexible multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) architecture for phase-coherent measurements, and offers measurement speeds that are five times faster than traditional rack-and-stack instruments. The analyzer combines the new NI PXIe-5603 downconverter with the new NI PXIe-5653 local oscillator synthesizer and the NI PXIe-5622, a 150 MS/s intermediate frequency (IF) digitizer. This combination creates a solution for spectrum and wideband vector signal measurements over a frequency range from 20 Hz to 3.6 GHz with analysis bandwidths up to 50 MHz.
