Short Name: Arb Carrier Frequency (Hz)

Property of niRFSG

Indicates the carrier frequency generated by the AWG module.

Supported Devices: PXI-5610, PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672/5673/5673E, PXIe-5840

The specified carrier frequency is related to the RF output as shown in the following equations:

Device Equation
PXI-5610, PXI-5670/5671, PXIe-5672 RF Frequency = Upconverter Center Frequency + Arb Carrier Frequency - 25 MHz
PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXIe-5673/5673E, PXIe-5840 RF Frequency = Upconverter Center Frequency + Arb Carrier Frequency
Note  The Upconverter Center Frequency (Hz) property and this property cannot be set at the same time. The only time the carrier frequency is non-zero on these devices is when in-band retuning is used.
Note  Use this property to associate a carrier frequency with a waveform.
Note  This property is read-only on the PXI-5670/5671 and PXIe-5672.
