National Instruments to launch ‘new, smarter’ design and test solutions

National Instruments HQ

Company says it has made advances in a number of areas 

National Instruments, a provider of automation test equipment, says it will demonstrate “new, smarter microwave design and test solutions that address the entire product lifecycle” at the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium next month.

NI says developing next-generation internet of things (IoT) wireless devices and 5G infrastructure challenges the way engineers develop smaller, faster and smarter products.

In semiconductor, the push for smaller and more integrated devices is leading to smarter methodologies and flows for RF design and test. In aerospace and defense applications, electronic systems are at a crossroads of increasing system complexity and legacy hardware compatibility.

To address all phases of product development, the company says customers can take advantage of the design and test solutions from NI based on AWR Design Environment software, LabView and PXI.

NI solutions the compnay plans to showcase at IMS2016 include:
» New measurement solutions for 802.11ax – high-efficiency WLAN (HEW) – devices; 
» Advances in NI AWR software design solutions for power amplifier, antenna, filter and radar systems through new automation and tool interoperability; 
» Advanced solutions for RFIC test, from lab-based characterization systems to high-volume manufacturing test solutions; and
» Advanced millimeter wave technology for channel sounding and 5G prototyping.

NI president, CEO and co-founder Dr James Truchard will deliver the closing keynote titled Software’s Role in Next-Generation 5G RF and Microwave Systems on Thursday, May 26 at 4.30 pm.

Dr Truchard will explore the vital role of a software-based approach to power the explosion of wireless communications for high-data-rate voice, data and video applications, from early prototyping and research all the way to fully deployed systems.

NI will deliver 13 presentations at the MicroApps Theater, in addition to a panel session titled The 5G IoT Conundrum featuring Eric Starkloff, NI executive vice president of global sales and marketing, on Wednesday, May 25 at noon.

NI can be found at IMS2016 in San Francisco, Booth 1529, May 22-27.
