  • RTVSA, RTVSG, MCRTVSA and MCRTVSG Include Support for Standard Internal Analog & Digital Modulators and Demodulators: AM, FM, PM, SSB, BPSK, QPSK/OQPSK, MSK/GMSK, FSK 2 - 32, PSK 4 - 32, ASK 2 - 32 and QAM 16 - 256. Other Mods/Demods by Request/NRE.
  • Optional Multi-Channel Real-Time VSA and VSG Apps (MCRTVSA and MCRTVSG) -- Support up to 128 Individually Controlled RX Channels and up to 16 Individually Controlled TX Channels for concurrent, multiple UUT testing WITHOUT additional PXIe Hardware.
  • Optional RTSA Apps: Standard RTSA-1 and Industry's Fastest RTSA-2 (Exp. License Req'd)-- both with Adv. Triggering, SSD-based Capture, Playback and Analysis. RTSA-1: 15 msec 100% POI MDS FAA & 160 MHz BW. RTSA-2: 320 nsec 100% POI MDS FAA & 765 MHz RTBW.
  • Audio (Low Freq.) Analyzer and Real-Time Bit Error Rate Tester (RT BERT) Apps. RT BERT includes intrinsic support for BER Tester, Pattern Generator and Receiver for Ethernet and RS-232 Serial I/O Based BER Test Sequences.
  • Digital Storage Oscilloscope (DSO) and Digital Multi-meter (DMM) Apps include extensive set of functions and features with support for a wide range of NI PXI, PXIe and USB DSO and DMM products.
  • Other LibertyGT MSFS Optional Apps: RAID-based Wideband Spectrum and Data Record and Playback, OpenSQL Database for storage/access of UUT test data and Data I/F App with Encode/Decode for SDR Prototyping, End-to-End Testing and Over-the-Air UUT Control.
  • Comprehensive Application Programming Interface (API) Provides a Unified, PC-based Programming Model for Easy Programming with LabVIEW, TestStand, Python, C, C++ & Java for Reduced TCO. Also supports TCP/IP/Ethernet based Remote Interface.
  • Optional LGTE-RF3/RF4 Touchscreen PXI/PXIe Enclosures: with 12 or 24 GB/Sec Backplane, patent-pending hinged front panel with optional HD 1080p touchscreen, configurable I/O panel, front-to-back I/O and filtered air cooling and optional 50 PPB 10 MHz Ref.
  • Optional RADX RF Interface Unit(s) (RFIUs)-- Application specific signal conditioning (switching, filtering, amplification and attenuation) enables LibertyGT-based systems to meet specific test and measurement signal I/O requirements
Benefits
  • Multi-Function & Comprehensive: LibertyGT MSFS supports over a dozen essential RF and related T&M Apps that enable it to replace multiple box instruments to reduce multi-function test system Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
  • Dedicated FPGA acceleration enables: 1) Concurrent App execution for Faster Throughput & Reduced TCO, 2) World's Fastest (optional) RTSA-2 with 320 ns 100% POI FAA MDS (10x > KSN9040B) and 3) Unique (optional) Multichannel RTVSA (128-CH) and RTVSG (16-CH).
  • Intuitive Touchscreen GUI Optimized for 1 or 2 HD 1080p Displays provides best-in-class user experience while minimizing training and reducing TCO.
  • Open SW Architecture for: 1) Comprehensive API for EASY programming of all Apps and functions using LabVIEW, TestStand, Python, C, C++ & Java and 2) Compatibility with NI Measurement Suites and 3rd Party LabVIEW Tools Network Apps for Reduced TTM and TCO.
  • Modular HW/SW Arch. slashes Mean-Time-to-Repair and TCO by Supporting Module-Level Spares, Repairs & Cal AND Tech Insertion for Upgrades and Replacement of End-of-Life Modules with New Modules (eliminates Life-Time-Buys) WITHOUT affecting test programs.
  • Flexible: Customers may purchase LibertyGT MSFS via 1) Software Kits (with optional RADX Touchscreen PXIe Enc.) or 2) Integrated, Turnkey Systems (various configs). Also, RADX MSFS Source Code may be licensed for escrow, support or porting purposes.
