NI WLAN Measurement Suite 2.0 for IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN Testing

National Instruments announced the NI WLAN Measurement Suite 2.0 for IEEE 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) testing. The NI WLAN Measurement Suite 2.0 includes enhanced software toolkits for IEEE 802.11n WLAN signal generation and analysis. The suite integrates with NI 6.6 GHz PXI Express multichannel RF signal generators and analyzers to deliver true, phase-coherent multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) RF measurements required for IEEE 802.11n WLAN testing. The NI WLAN Measurement Suite for IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n is priced at $5,999 (euro 5,499; 840,000 yen).

NI WLAN Measurement Suite for IEEE 802.11n Highlights

  • Fastest measurement speed for error vector magnitude (EVM) and spectrum mask
  • Highest class of measurement accuracy for IEEE 802.11n and a/b/g WLAN test
  • Helps engineers lower the cost of test and reduce the size of test systems by testing multiple wireless standards
  • Supports IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth, GSM/EDGE, WCDMA, WiMAX using the same PXI test system
  • For measurements, the toolkit integrates with NI PXIe-5663E 6.6 GHz two-, three- and four-channel vector signal analyzers (VSAs)
  • For signal generation, the toolkit integrates with NI-PXIe-5673E 6.6 GHz two-, three- and four-channel vector signal generators (VSGs)
  • Can perform composite EVM and power measurements in 7.0 ms (combined with NI PXIe-8133 quad-core embedded controller)
  • Engineers can software-enable its new resolution bandwidth filter feature to remove broadband noise and increase EVM measurement accuracy
  • Engineers can achieve residual EVM accuracy of better than -47 dB when testing WLAN devices
  • Can be used as a standalone executable or as an API in LabVIEW, NI LabWindows/CVI ANSI C development environment ,or other C, C++ and .NET development systems
