Keysight RF PXIe System (upgraded M9381A)

This Keysight RF PXI-express system chassis, is an 18-slot chassis with a high-speed controller (Intel i7 with 16GB RAM) and a variety of RF and FPGA cards.  The system includes a Vector Signal Analyzer (6.6GHz), a Vector Signal Generator (6 GHz with a reference frequency generator), DC power supply, digital I/O’s, Kintex-7 FPGA board, and several supporting accessories for a complete benchtop RF test environment.

Specifications​

  • 6 GHz range VSG & VSA
  • Local Oscillator (LO) sharing for phase coherency
  • Signal Studio for custom modulation of signals (Keysight VSG)
  • NI and Keysight programming and management software

Applications

  • Power amplifier & radio transceiver design validation & test
  • Connect with other VSGs available in the NDN for a multi-channel phase coherent solution
  • Demanding CPU and memory requirements
