Title: National Instruments PXIe-6556 Digital Waveform Generator/Analyzer: Unleashing Advanced Testing Capabilities

Introduction: Explore the National Instruments PXIe-6556, a powerful Digital Waveform Generator/Analyzer designed for validation and production tests. This article delves into its features, specifications, accessories, calibration options, and frequently asked questions, providing a comprehensive guide for users.

  1. Key Features:
    • 24 channels with per pin parametric unit (PPMU) capability.
    • 200 MHz maximum clock rate, supporting voltage levels from -2 V to 7 V or -1 V to 7 V.
    • PPMU acts as a force and measure unit, enabling current and voltage driving and measurement independently for each channel.
    • Two part numbers available: 781949-02 (64 MB memory per channel) and 781949-01 (8 MB memory per channel).
    • Maximum data transfer rate of 200 Mbit per second.
  2. Advanced Testing Capabilities:
    • Real-time hardware compare, data delay, scripting, and an onboard high-resolution clock enhance testing flexibility.
    • Timing and synchronization capabilities enable advanced linking, information streaming, and looping.
    • Integration with power supplies, digitizers, and switches for a versatile mixed-signal test system.
