Vector Signal Transceivers combine a vector signal generator and a vector signal analyzer with FPGA based real time signal processing and control. The NI PXIe-5644R RF Vector Signal Transceiver from National Instruments offers operation in the 65 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range, 80 MHz instantaneous bandwidth, and 24 channels of high speed digital I/O up to 250 Mbit/s. It’s used to test wireless and cellular standards.
This vector signal transceiver can expand to support multiple input and output configurations or parallel testing in a single PXI chassis. It’s been built on FPGA technology programmable with NI’s LabVIEW software, and features industry-leading performance and test times for wireless standards testing.
