Power vs thd sweep tests?

Can Virtins perform audio power amplifier THD+N vs. Power tests like Audio Precision gear? Thank you.

Yes. It can be done using the Device Test Plan add-on software module in MI. An example can be found in Section 8.8.4 of the software manual.

Thank you. This looks to be very powerful software. I'm going to work very hard during the trial period to test its capabilities and stability. If it works well, you have a purchase

One question: what level of Virtins is needed to perform this Device Test Plan?

Device Test Plan is an add-on module and needs to be purchased separately. It runs on MI Lite and above.

Thank you. For use with the M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound card which required longer delay/duration than standard in the Crosstalk dtp, will I need the Calibration Latency for Sync I/O option only available in MI Pro?

It is not necessary to calibrate the latency for this test, although the latency value can help you to set the appropriate duration of the signal generator for "SIO" instruction in Device Test Plan.

Calibration of the latency should be done if you want to control the start of the oscilloscope accurately under Synchronized Oscilloscope & Signal Generator mode in the Signal Generator Panel, as described in Section 4.11.5.

Thank you. So it seems likely that I can start with MI Lite + DTP module without needing the latency thing.

I see that SteppedSineFrequencyResponseMeasurement.dtp opens two windows to plot Derived Data Points:
Gain(dB),GainAtGeneratedFreq(dB) and Phase(D),PhaseAtGeneratedFreq(D)

Is MI Pro required to view these DDP plots as generated by the dtp?

MI Pro is not required to view these DDP plots generated by the DTP.
