Configures the frequency and power level of the RF output signal. The PXI-5670/5671 and PXIe-5672 device must be in the Configuration state before you call this VI. The PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXI/PXIe-5650/5651/5652, PXIe-5654/5654 with PXIe-5696, PXIe-5673/5673E, and PXIe-5840 device can be in the Configuration state or Generation state when you call this VI.

Supported Devices: PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXI/PXIe-5650/5651/5652, PXIe-5654/5654 with PXIe-5696, PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672/5673/5673E, PXIe-5840

frequency specifies the frequency of the generated RF signal. For arbitrary waveform generation, frequency specifies the center frequency of the signal. This value is expressed in hertz.

/images/reference/en-XX/help/371025V-01/cdbl.gif

power level specifies the power level of the generated RF signal. By default, this parameter specifies the average power of the signal. To configure the power level of a waveform with varying power, set the Power Level Type property to Peak Power. This value is expressed in dBm.
