Corrects for any signal drift due to temperature variation when generating the same signal for extended periods of time without a parameter change. Under normal circumstances of short-term signal generation, NI-RFSG performs thermal correction automatically by ensuring stable power levels, and you do not need to call this VI. Use this VI when generating the same signal for a long period of time in a temperature-fluctuating environment. The NI-RFSG device must be in the Generation state before you call this VI.

Supported Devices: PXIe-5611, PXI/PXIe-5650/5651/5652, PXIe-5653/5654/5654 with PXIe-5696, PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672/5673/5673E, PXIe-5840
