The NI PXI-5922 Digitizer Module can be combined with NI LabVIEW 7.1 to create numerous types of instruments such as AC voltmeters, audio analyzers, frequency counters, spectrum analyzers, or I/Q modulation analyzers.
When measuring a voltage source with small [R.sub.s] (typically between 100 kV and 1 MV), most benchtop voltmeters and digital multimeters have sufficiently large [R.sub.in] so that loading errors will not be a limiting factor.
