NI, Tektronix introduce PXI Digitizer

Delivers productivity improvements to engineers in automated test

By CBR Staff Writer

National Instruments has jointly developed a digitizer with Tektronix, a provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation. The company claimed that the new offering represents the first joint hardware development project between the two companies and that it delivers advanced performance for demanding applications.

The company said that with the new offering, engineers and scientists will have a new level of measurement performance and test productivity in applications such as those found in physics and experimental research, aerospace and defense, communications, semiconductor and consumer electronics industries.

As part of the NI PXI platform, the new offering reportedly joins a family of products designed for high measurement throughput using high-bandwidth and low-latency PCI and PCI Express bus technologies.

According to the company, the PXI Express digitizer enhances PXI modular instrumentation performance, with greater than 3 GHz bandwidth, sample rates beyond 10GS/s, data throughput of more than 600MB/s and multi-module synchronisation capabilities.

The new offering will also integrate with other PXI instruments and NI LabVIEW software for instrument control and automation, NI LabWindowsTM/CVI ANSI C software development environment and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET development tools to offer a range of programming options, the company said.

The official product release and first shipments of the new digitizer will be available from National Instruments in 2010, with lead user engagements continuing through the end of 2009.

James Truchard, president, CEO and cofounder of National Instruments, said: “We have worked for many years to deliver productivity improvements to engineers in automated test through LabVIEW and PXI, and this new module represents the highest performance acquisition capability that we’ve delivered in this platform to date.”
