Test engineers have been asking us for a quick and easy way to integrate our portable signal generators with their LabView test system. The new SF1010 with it's SCPI interface is the answer.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
A new portable signal generator designed for use with National Instruments LabView© and other automated test environments is now available from Signal Forge. The SF1010 Portable Signal Generator with Remote Control, supports the SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) interface, which allows test engineers to quickly add the new portable signal generator to most popular automated test environments including Labview, LabWindows/CVI and HP's VEE.
The SF1010 is a portable signal generator with a frequency range of 1 Hz to 1 GHz which may be extended to 2.6 GHz with add-on Frequency Expansion Modules. The SF1010 provides numerous waveform modulation functions making it useful or applications such as building surveys, installation and maintenance of facility-based cellular and wireless networks, and a variety of other field test and lab-bench test applications. The SF1010 is small enough--8.5in x 5.4in x 1.5in--and light enough, at 1.75 pounds, to carry in a laptop computer bag. Unlike other portable signal generators, the SF1010 generates a stable, accurate RF frequency up to 2.6 GHz. The waveform modulation functions supported are: AM, ASK, BPSK, Chirp, FSK, OOK and Sweep.
For customers who do not wish to write their own programs, SF1010 may be operated using the EZ Wave software that ships with the device. EZ Wave is a simple control application that makes the SF1010 ready to use out of the box without additional programming or integration. The software runs on any Windows-based PC with the Vista, XP and 2000 operating systems.
The SF1010 Portable Signal Generator with Remote Control is priced at $985 and is available now.
