Short Name: Peak Power Adjustment (dB)

Property of niRFSG

Adjusts the Power Level (dBm) property. This property is valid only when you set the Power Level Type property to Peak Power. The value of the Peak Power Adjustment (dB) property adds to the Power Level (dBm) property. The Peak Power Adjustment (dB) property typically specifies the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of a waveform. If the PAPR is specified, the specified power level becomes the average power level of the waveform, even if the Power Level Type property is set to Peak Power.

Note  For the PXIe-5673/5673E only, use this property to associate a peak power adjustment with a waveform.
Note  For the PXIe-5645, this property is ignored if you are using the I/Q ports.

Supported Devices: PXIe-5644/5645/5646, PXIe-5673/5673E, PXIe-5840
