Each year, the NIHF and the USPTO rewards specific people in technology. These visionaries and U.S. patent holders are recognized for their lasting legacies that have transformed our country and our world.
This is the fourth part in our series about the National Instruments SCXI Series. This blog post will describe another type of SCXI switch module.
This is the third part in our series about the National Instruments SCXI Series. There are several types of switches in the SCXI series. The first type is the Multiplexer/Matrix Switch Module. One of these Multiplexer/Matrix Modules is the SCXI-1127 (electromechanical relay). Another example is the SCXI-1128 (solid-state relay). Both are devices that function as multiplexer or matrix modules. As a multiplexer, they can operate in different multiplexing modes, such as 1-wire for resistive measurements including RTDs and low-resistance measurements. With the SCXI-1332 front-mounting terminal block, the SCXI-1127 and SCXI-1128 become a 4×8 2-wire matrix. Expanding the multiplexer or matrix channel count is as easy as adding additional modules.
Over the next few weeks, we will be adding blog posts about the National Instruments SCXI platform. This first post in the series will cover the analog input modules.
As far back as the early days of wireless communications, designers and engineers have been concerned with electromagnetic interference (EMI). Tektronix has been a leader in designing and producing several series of analyzers to help detect and combat EMI throughout the testing phases of research and manufacturing. Tektronix analyzers are known for their ability to instantly scan broad spectrum spans and display easy-to-read test results for better overall EMI detection.
As rogue elements continually improve countermeasures for modern navigation and communication systems, engineers need instrumentation and software solutions that are flexible enough to allow for the design and testing of evolving threats and complex signals.
Enhanced 5G mobile broadband is coming, and faster than many companies and industry insiders anticipated. 5G mobile network deployments have begun and will increase greatly in 2019 and 2020. But, just how fast is the rollout being accomplished?
The aerospace and defense industries require the most advanced and accurate testing equipment available. The applications for what these industries produce are simply too vital, and testing protocols are understandably rigorous. National Instruments, based in Austin, TX, is a leader in providing high-quality testing equipment and software for aerospace and defense applications, especially their PXI Systems.
