Product description:Noise Figure Measurement Toolkit NFMT allows to make a noise figure measurement on NI PXI Vector signal analyzer with the "Y Factor" technique. It calculates the Noise figure (NF) and Gain of the DUT (LNA, mixer, RX path etc.) along with the measurement uncertainty.

It is recommended to download trial version and test it on the system, as the toolkit's measurement results (speed of measurement, ranges, accuracy, etc.) are tightly associated with used NI VSA ,system configuration, Noise Source parameters. We recommend NI PXIe 5665 for maximal sensitivity. The trial version is available for testing.

For more information read the Noise Figure Measurement Toolkit User Manual (included in installer) or please get in contact with us.
