Aeroflex released two new PXI modules to address the need for high-speed testing of RFICs and other devices designed for WLAN and wimax (worldwide interoperability for microwave access) applications.

The two new modules are the PXI3025 6GHz digital signal generator and the PXI3035 6GHz wideband RF digitizer. Occupying three slots when associated with the company's 3010 RF synthesizer, these new modules provide wideband coverage while saving valuable system real estate and cost.

The 3025 digital RF signal generator follows the recent release of the 3020A digital RF signal generator, which introduced new features for Aeroflex's PXI RF signal generators that improve range, speed, accuracy and flexibility for RF manufacturing and design verification. The 3010 RF synthesizer and the 3025 form a compact 3U-high precision digital RF signal generator complete with integrated dual-channel AWG that occupies three PXI slots.

Aeroflex explained that the frequency range of the 3025 has been extended to 6GHz to cover WLAN and WiMax frequencies. Modulation modes have also been 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 faster and with greater flexibility. Meanwhile, the external TTL trigger input adds to the broad range of available trigger sources.

Designed to meet the needs of advanced digital communications standards, the 3025 digital RF signal generator can be used for measurement or system emulation for WLAN, WiMax and cellular communications, as well as applications in satellite and terrestrial TV broadcasting and military communications.

The 3035 RF digitizer is complementary to the 3025. This product provides wideband high dynamic range A to D conversion of RF input signals up to 6GHz. Together with the 3010 RF digitizer and measurement application software, the system provides vector signal analysis of RF signals.

Delivery for the 3025 and the 3035 is initially eight weeks upon receipt of order.
