National Instruments and RADX Unveil Future-Proof COTS Solutions
During AUTOTESTCON 2013, RADX Technologies, Inc., introduced the RADX LibertyGT™ family of commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) Software Defined Synthetic Instrument (SDSI) solutions. LibertyGT solutions combine RADX COTS Realtime Measurement Science Software and Firmware modules with pre-configured NI PXI systems and NI LabVIEW system design software. This combination is ideal for system integrator and volume end-user application development.
According to Ross Q. Smith, RADX co-founder and CEO, the 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. It does not compromising on scalability, modularity, technology insertion, precision, realtime measurement performance and overall value.
Wade Lowdermilk, RADX co-founder and CTO, said 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," said Lowdermilk. "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."
