The NI PXIe-5667 spectrum monitoring receiver was released by National Instruments today, which addresses radio monitoring, spectrum regulation, interference detection and related applications in line with ITU (International Telecommunication Union) recommendations.

The NI PXIe-5667 3.6 and 7GHz spectrum monitoring receivers feature dynamic range of over 110 dB and distortion performance with third-order intercept (TOI) of over 17 dBm. They are built on the high-performance NI PXIe-5665 vector signal analyser (VSA) architecture, the wide-band receiver is ideal for over-the-air RF measurements. NI PXIe-5667 also allows users to perform real-time signal analysis and advanced signal processing in user-configurable FPGA hardware in addition to analogue specifications.

When combined with NI FlexRIO and the NI LabVIEW FPGA Module, the NI PXIe-5667 can perform real-time analysis of RF signals such as continuous spectrum monitoring, spectrogram and advanced signal processing in the FPGA hardware without the latency of moving data to and from the host controller or PC. The LabVIEW FPGA IP has digital down-converter channelisation, frequency hop detection and the ability to uncover spectrum mask violations.

"We are extremely pleased with the performance of the NI PXIe-5667," said Jin Bains, vice president of R&D for RF at National Instruments. "Its phenomenal dynamic range and scan rate, which is more than 10 times better than that of competing receivers, make it a game changer for radio monitoring applications."
