Phase Matrix Completes Development of PXI-Based RF/Microwave Upconverter/Synthesizer Modules as part of SBIR Contract

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phase Matrix, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of National Instruments (NATI), announced the 2.5 completion of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract. The contract entails the development of a family of radio frequency (RF) and microwave upconverter/synthesizer modules in support of small form factor PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) applications for automated test. The development effort was sponsored by NAVAIR PMA 260D. The modules are intended for use in portable and transportable synthetic-instrument test-and-measurement (T&M) systems, as well as embedded applications, for both military and commercial applications within the L to Ka microwave frequency bands. In addition to the 2.5 completion of the SBIR project, Phase Matrix is working with early adopters on the phase-three commercialization of this technology.

“The achievement of this industry first RF and microwave stimulus capability in a PXI format will further solidify Phase Matrix’s position as a premier supplier of modular open-architecture RF and microwave instrumentation.”

Phase Matrix’s SBIR Program Manager Dr. Michael Granieri stated, “The completion of this project opens up an exciting marketplace for Phase Matrix and National Instruments in the development and application of upconverter/synthesizer modules in support of highly mobile PXI-based test systems." Mr. Pete Pragastis, Phase Matrix’s General Manager, stated, “The achievement of this industry first RF and microwave stimulus capability in a PXI format will further solidify Phase Matrix’s position as a premier supplier of modular open-architecture RF and microwave instrumentation.”

Phase Matrix, Inc. (www.phasematrix.com) is a wholly owned subsidiary of National Instruments and designs and manufactures RF and microwave T&M instruments, subsystems, and components. The company operates in a modern 25,000 + sq. ft. facility within the “golden triangle” of Silicon Valley in California’s Bay Area.
