Engineers can integrate PXI digitisers into a variety of National Instruments hardware, including arbitrary waveform generators and digital waveform generators/analysers to customise and build a complete, automated mixed-signal test system.
Using the firm's "T-Clock" technology, engineers can also synchronise multiple PXI-5154 digitisers to build systems with up to 34 channels in a single PXI chassis.
