RADX Technologies and National Instruments Introduce LibertyGT Software Defined Synthetic Instrument Solutions
RADX Technologies and National Instruments introduced the RADX LibertyGT family of COTS Software Defined Synthetic Instrument (SDSI) solutions today at AUTOTESTCON 2013 (Booth 207). LibertyGT SDSI solutions combine RADX Realtime Measurement Science Software and Firmware with modular, open-architecture NI PXI and LabVIEW Reference and Tailorable Deployment Platforms to address high performance wireless, RF and microwave measurement and test applications for commercial and mil-aero markets.
RADX® Technologies, Inc. (“RADX”), through a collaboration with National Instruments, introduced the RADX LibertyGT™ family of commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) Software Defined Synthetic Instrument (SDSI) solutions today at AUTOTESTCON 2013. LibertyGT solutions combine RADX COTS Realtime Measurement Science Software and Firmware modules with pre-configured NI PXI systems and NI LabVIEW system design software for application development. RADX and NI are demonstrating the LibertyGT SDSI Model 1000R PXI with the LibertyGT SDSI Spectrum Analysis Software Module in the NI booth (No. 207) at AUTOTESTCON 2013.
“LibertyGT is the first RF instrument family that realizes the promise of COTS software-defined synthetic instrumentation by preserving independence between the hardware and the measurement science software, while not compromising on scalability, modularity, technology insertion, precision, realtime measurement performance and overall value,” said Ross Q. Smith, RADX co-founder and CEO.
“The LibertyGT Reference Platform Program has unique benefits in test and measurement applications requiring repeatable, reproducible test results with high throughput. These are essential for commercial wireless programs and DoD communications, radar, and other mission critical applications,” added Wade Lowdermilk, RADX co-founder and CTO. “By deploying RADX Realtime Measurement Science with Channelization on pre-configured, modular NI PXI systems, we can provide assured performance while supporting the value proposition that comes from COTS solutions.”
Designed for system integrator and volume end-user applications, LibertyGT solutions consist of RADX COTS Measurement Science Software and Firmware modules and NI PXI systems equipped with LabVIEW. Additionally, RADX software leverages patented and patent-pending realtime synthetic instrumentation technology licensed exclusively from BAE Systems. The LibertyGT Model 1000 Reference Platform addresses single channel applications up to 6 GHz, while the LibertyGT Model 2000 Reference Platform addresses dual channel applications up to 26.5 GHz.
“Our collaboration with RADX on LibertyGT clearly illustrates the value of the NI Alliance Partner Network community,” said Christer Ljungdahl, director of aerospace and defense for the Americas at National Instruments. “The combination of NI modular instrumentation with RADX advanced measurement science results in a cost-effective and future-proof family of COTS measurement and test solutions. Our mutual customers can rapidly exploit LibertyGT systems to bring new device testing capabilities to market in record time and at previously unattainable price points.”
