PXI RF Test Modules
Aeroflex announces two PXI modules to address the need for high-speed testing of RFICs and other devices designed for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) applications. The two modules include the Aeroflex PXI 3025 6 GHz digital signal generator and the Aeroflex 3035 6 GHz wideband RF digitizer. The frequency range of the 3025 has been extended to 6 GHz to cover WLAN and WiMax frequencies. Modulation modes are extended to include internal AM/FM and external IQ vector modulation. List Mode and arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) file sequencing modes enable the user to set frequency, level and AWG waveforms much faster and with greater flexibility. The 3035 RF digitizer is complementary to the 3025; it provides wideband high dynamic range A/D conversion of RF input signals up to 6 GHz.
