Aeroflex PXI Studio Software

Aeroflex PXI Studio Software

Product Overview:

Ideal for R&D and production test system engineering applications using Aeroflex 3000 Series PXI modular RF instruments.
 
PXI Studio is a Windows® software application for use with the Aeroflex 3000 series of PXI modular RF instruments. This highly flexible application allows you to simultaneously generate and analyze complex modulated RF signals. Measurement tools enable difficult problems to be tracked down quickly and help simplify design verification or test system development.
 
PXI Studio installed on your PXI system controller and used with PXI3000 hardware modules forms a tightly coupled high performance laboratory measurement instrument. PXI Studio presents a single integrated graphical user interface to control almost any configuration of Aeroflex PXI 3000 series modules. As standard, it provides Signal Generator and/or RF Digitizer control with general purpose spectrum or time domain analysis for RF component testing or alignment of radio communications transceivers.

INTRODUCTION
PXI Studio is a WindowsTM software application for use with the Aeroflex 3000 Series of PXI modular RF instruments. This highly flexible application allows you to simultaneously generate and analyze complex modulated RF signals. Measurement tools enable difficult problems to be tracked down quickly and help simplify design verification or test system development.

As standard it provides Signal Generator and/or RF Digitizer control with general purpose spectrum or time domain analysis for RF component testing or alignment of radio communications transceivers.
Optional measurement plug-ins extend measurement support to cater for a wide variety of communication standards within the same application framework making the test solution extremely versatile. In each case the plug-in extends the capabilities to provide power, spectrum and modulation analysis with results displayed in user configurable tiles. A variety of trace displays are provided as appropriate to the communication standard each permitting close examination of underlying problems beyond the scope of traditional measurement instruments. When used synchronously with complex signal generation, stimulus and response component measurements or complete transceiver characterization can be accomplished with ease.
All measurement processing is performed within the host PC. Performance is therefore directly enhanced as PC processing power improves.
PXI Studio plug-ins each have an associated remote programming interface (.dll with .net assemblies) for use in a wide variety of application development environments such as National Instruments LabView/LabWindows CVI/Test Stand, Microsoft Visual Studio and Visual Basic. In addition, each measurement suite provides hardware independent low-level function libraries enabling more experienced programmers the option to maximize test system flexibility by coding PXI hardware control and measurement functions independently.
