Short Name: Attenuator Hold Enabled
Property of niRFSG
Enables or disables attenuator hold. While this property is set to TRUE, changing the power level causes NI-RFSG to scale the digital data sent to the AWG instead of adjusting the attenuators. Changing power levels in this manner allows the device to increase or decrease the power level in more accurate increments but may affect signal-to-noise ratios (noise density).
Setting the Attenuator Hold Enabled property to TRUE limits the power levels that can be attained. With attenuator hold enabled, the power level must satisfy the following conditions:
To set this property, the NI-RFSG device must be in the Configuration state.
|Note The frequency cannot be changed on the PXI-5670/5671 or PXIe-5672 while the Attenuator Hold Enabled property is set to TRUE.|
Supported Devices: PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672/5673/5673E
Default Value: FALSE
|TRUE||Enables attenuator hold.|
|FALSE||Disables attenuator hold.|
