National Instruments (NI) has rolled out six products as the latest members of its NI FlexRIO product family, built on FPGA-based reconfigurable I/O (RIO). The adapter modules added I/O including digitizer, signal generation and IF and RF transceiver capabilities. According to the company, engineers can pair these NI FlexRIO adapter modules with user-programmable FPGAs to solve almost any test application, from real-time spectrum monitoring and RF modulation/demodulation to signal intelligence and RF communication protocol prototyping.

Because the modules benefit from the parallelism and dataflow programming of the NI LabVIEW RIO architecture, they can be easily targeted by engineers without VHDL or Verilog knowledge, noted the company. The combination of NI FlexRIO, LabVIEW system design software and access to more than 600 NI PXI modular instruments gives engineers a commercial off-the-shelf solution that can be customized using FPGA technology.

The NI 5771 is an 8bit, 3GS/s digitizer geared for pulsing, light detection and ranging (LIDAR) and high-resolution edge detection. The NI 5772 is a 12bit, 1.6GS/s digitizer adapter module aimed at broadband IF acquisition and real-time spectrum monitoring. Both the NI 5782 IF transceiver and NI 5791 RF transceiver are engineered for custom modulation and demodulation, bit error rate testing, signal intelligence (SIGINT) and real-time spectrum analysis.

Lastly, the AT-1120, a 14bit, 2GS/s signal generator, and the AT-1212, a 2-channel signal generator, are intended for RF communications protocol prototyping, RF record and playback, SIGINT and channel emulation, stated NI.
