niRFSG 5696 Amplifier Cal Initialize


instrument handle identifies your instrument calibration session. instrument handle is obtained from the niRFSG Initialize External Calibration VI.


NI 5654 resource name specifies the resource name of the PXIe-5654 RF signal generator to initialize.


path to calibrate specifies which amplifier path to calibrate.

High Power Specifies the high power path.
Low Harmonic Specifies the low harmonic path.

measurement port specifies the port that the power meter is connected to. To reduce error, the calibration procedure measures the PXIe-5696 input power as well as the PXIe-5696 output power.

Input Power Specifies the PXIe-5696 input power.
Output Power Specifies the PXIe-5696 output power.

input power file specifies the file where the input power measurements are stored. This file is written when you set measurement port to Input Power. This file is read when you set measurement port to Output Power.


error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality.


instrument handle out passes a reference to your instrument session to the next VI.


error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
