NI PXIe-5667 Receiver Delivers Best-in-Class Measurement Performance to Meet Common Spectrum Monitoring and Signal Surveillance Challenges


National Instruments recently announced the NI PXIe-5667 spectrum monitoring receiver to address radio monitoring, interference detection, spectrum regulation and related applications in line with ITU recommendations. 

Coupled with NI FlexRIO and the NI LabVIEW FPGA Modulethe NI PXIe-5667 can perform real-time analysis of RF signals such as continuous spectrum monitoring, spectrogram and advanced signal processing in the FPGA hardware without the latency of moving data to and from the host controller or PC. Available LabVIEW FPGA IP include digital downconverter channelization, frequency hop detection and the ability to uncover spectrum mask violations.

“We are extremely pleased with the performance of the NI PXIe-5667,” said Jin Bains, vice president of R&D for RF at National Instruments. “Its phenomenal dynamic range and scan rate, which is more than 10 times better than that of competing receivers, make it a game changer for radio monitoring applications.”

Product Features
· Frequency range from 20 Hz to 7 GHz with up to 50 MHz real-time bandwidth
· RF spectrum with scan rates of up to 30 GHz/s
· Dynamic range >110 dB and noise figure <12 dB
· Second-order intercept point of 80 dBm and TOI >17 dBm
