In fully-integrated wireless ATE systems, an instrument controller is required to handle all the tasks associated with making everything work together. However, when you’re programming just a few devices to accomplish a measurement task (for example), a complex and costly controller is usually more than you really need. But you do still need a way to control, configure, and run routines using the components, and that’s where the simple yet effective Windows-based Lab Brick can help you be successful.
Frankly, it’s like having an instrument controller “in miniature form”.
The initial steps are stated here:
… and now you’re ready to go
As instruments, rather than components like attenuators and phase shifters, are obviously more complex, and our goal has been to make the Lab Brick instruments easy to use, but very capable.
The can be configured to linearly sweep through a range of frequencies, and setting this up is simple. Enter the start and end frequencies and sweep time. You can’t make a mistake because minimum start and end frequency limits are specific to the Lab Brick signal generator you’re using. The sweep time can be set from 1 ms to 1000 s.
