NI PXIe‑5172 high-density PXI oscilloscope of National Instruments

National Instruments launched the PXIe-5172 high-density PXI oscilloscope

National Instruments announced the PXIe‑5172 high-density PXI oscilloscope with four or eight simultaneously sampled channels and 100 MHz analog bandwidth. This PXI Express oscilloscope is integrated in a one slot module.

The NI PXIe-5172 oscilloscope includes a user-programmable FPGA to customize functionality for different applications. It features a Kintex‑7 FPGA that can be used for custom acquisition, triggering, signal processing, and data streaming.

Engineers can use LabVIEW to customize this oscilloscope’s firmware, such as adding in-line signal processing or advanced triggering.
