I can automate a lot of testing very quickly. With just a push of a button, I can test hundreds of different scenarios without having to do all that manual testing myself.
It saves me a lot of time. You can click a button and walk away, basically doing a week's worth of work in 20 minutes, it's a pretty good time saver.

We haven't need technical support yet because all documentation is well done and there.
The integrated lateral view makes it easier to develop your test systems and test software flow.

Most of the features are on the screen itself. The naming convention makes it very easy to understand what is needed.

It took a good year until I felt proficient using the product, as It is a complex program. Their newest version has a less steep learning curve, but back closer to 15 years ago, it was a lot less user-friendly.

National Instruments needs to be focusing on its 5G RF applications. They are aware of this, and that's where most of their R&D is going.

I would like to have more RF. They're going that way, but still there is some work that they have to do.

I would like to see more of a tasking user base and documentation inside the instrument itself, rather than having to go online for it.
