Wireless technology is constantly evolving, and wireless design and test require a flexible and more cost-effective approach.
5G NR for Wireless Communications
5G New Radio (NR), with new bands, wider bandwidth, and new beamforming technology, presents significant design and test challenges that require powerful tools to accelerate innovation.
Software Defined Radio
NI software defined radios (SDRs) provide the design solution to rapidly prototype wireless communications systems, which leads to faster results. You can present applications with real-world signals such as multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) and LTE/WiFi testbed.
Wireless Device Test
New wireless standards, in addition to rising wireless usage, are increasing wireless device complexity while lowering price expectations. To counter rising costs, manufacturers require test systems optimized for efficiency.
Researchers need flexible and cost-effective tools to develop the next generation of wireless communication. With the right tools, researchers can create, design, simulate, prototype, and deploy wireless systems faster.
PXI Vector Signal Transceiver
The PXI Vector Signal Transceiver (VST) combines an RF and baseband vector signal analyzer and generator with a user-programmable FPGA and high-speed serial and parallel digital interfaces for real-time signal processing and control from baseband to mmWave.
Ettus Research provides users with as much choice and flexibility as possible when it comes to development environments, as well as OS support. All platforms support UHD (USRP Hardware Driver™), which ensures cross-platform code portability, so you can reuse most of your legacy SDR code on new platforms while focusing on new algorithm development.
