Training: NI RF Fundamentals and RF Application Development Courses

at Edmonton, Alberta

This training consists of two back-to-back courses:

  • RF Measurement Fundamentals (June 1 to 2): This course covers a range of topics from overall RF device architecture, mathematics basics like Fourier Transforms, modulation, RF measurements, and RF test considerations. It prepares the student for the RF Application Development course.
  • RF Application Development (June 3 to 5): This course focuses on how to use PXI-based RF hardware and software from National Instruments. It covers the complete RF hardware and software architecture from National Instruments. Topics will span from GPS, WLAN, MIMO, and cellular test to custom modulation formats and recommended programming practices for RF test. Students work with real-world analog and digital transceivers/receivers in hands-on exercises to reinforce the lessons for the National Instruments PXI RF hardware and software.
