#NIdaysuk Co-operation with Cardiff University on nonlinear RF network analysis technology

National Instruments has announced a joint initiative with Cardiff University to develop advanced nonlinear network analysis systems. These systems combine NI PXI RF instruments and NI LabVIEW software along with waveform engineering tools from Mesuro for dramatic improvements in measurement time compared to previous systems. NI hosted a live technology demonstration of Cardiff’s nonlinear network analysis demonstration at European Microwave Week.

“We used NI system design tools to build a research testbed taking non-linear microwave waveforms in less than four months,” said Professor Johannes Benedikt, Research Director for Cardiff University. “Early results show orders of magnitude test time improvements, enabling researchers to create non-linear circuit models in a fraction of the time than previously required.”

National Instruments also announced the acquisition of NMDG, a company with more than 20 years of experience and technology in high-frequency stimulus-response and large-scale network analysis measurements. Located at the NI facility in Brussels, Belgium, this group will actively support NI partners and leading research groups, such as Cardiff University, who use the NI platform for non-linear network analysis and behavioural modeling. The NMDG acquisition is part of a continued NI vision to provide RF and microwave design engineers with access to NI technology from initial design through production test.
