Spherical Near-Field

NSI-MI provides the most sophisticated software in the industry for measuring and analyzing antenna patterns. The software is compatible with nearly all measurement equipment in the industry and is constantly updated to support new motion controllers and RF equipment. The software is dedicated to solving the unique challenges of microwave range operation and management. The intuitive user interface, extensive scripting capability and broad data management functions give power and flexibility to solve the toughest measurement challenges.

Currently, NSI-MI offers two software packages: Arena and NSI2000. Both support data acquisition and processing. In addition, they can exchange data and process each other’s files. Many of the common features of the two packages are:
