Keysight expands PXI and AXIe Instrument Offering
12 August 2016 – Keysight Technologies expanded its offering of high-performance PXI and AXIe instruments and reference solutions. The new products are part of Keysight’s on-going commitment to deliver unrivaled RF, microwave and digital measurement expertise in the PXI and AXIe instrument form factors. Using the best available instruments—benchtop, modular or a combination—the reference solutions deliver proven hardware and software test configurations for critical applications, including 5G, EW threat simulations and digital interconnect test.
The M9019A PXIe 18-slot Gen 3 chassis, controller, I/O components and external PC option provide the highest system bandwidth on the market. This new series of PXIe system components offer at least two times more system bandwidth than a typical Gen 2 chassis, and the external PC option removes the limitations on PC selection imposed by closed PXIe systems.
With Keysight’s open Gen 3 platform, customers can select an external PC or controller that best meets their need. For example, a 5G or electronic warfare application requiring a PC optimized for the capture and playback of large data streams; or a MIMO application requiring a large, multi-channel and multi-chassis PXIe test systems.
The 4-slot M9421A PXIe vector transceiver (VXT) and the M9111A PXIe high-speed source/measure unit (SMU) improve test throughput, reduce the overall footprint, and are built for production test and design validation of next-generation PA/FEMs. The new PXIe VXT and SMU will be the part of Keysight’s RF PA/FEM characterization and test reference solution.
Covering frequencies from 60 MHz to 6 GHz, with modulation and analysis bandwidth up to 160 MHz, the VXT supports FPGA-accelerated measurements and includes software that supports analog demodulation, noise figure and a broad range of cellular and wireless connectivity formats. The SMU changes voltage, stabilizes and accurately measures micro-Amps, all in less than 1 ms. This is a 20 times speed improvement over previous-generation, stand-alone Keysight SMUs, and is a fraction of the size.
The new Digital Interconnect Test reference solution is the world’s fastest cable tester and features the PXI VNA with full cross-bar s-parameter calibration of 32-ports up to 26.5 GHz. The PLTS software offers complete domain analysis with a convenient production test interface.
