VAUNIX Digital Attenuator Matrices Double as Wireless Handover Test Systems

VAUNIX Digital Attenuator Matrices Double as Wireless Handover Test Systems

Vaunix Digital Attenuator Handover Test Systems bring affordability, functionality, reliability and simplicity to the microwave test bench.

 

Vaunix offers a range of attenuator matrices for unique wireless handover testing requirements.

 

Traditional fading simulations have relied upon complex and expensive single-box testers, which are ultimately limited by the number of ports, internal hardware, and proprietary and inflexible software. Other methods for enabling fading simulations may also involve an array of manual or programmable attenuators set to operate in a timed sequence. However, these methods fail to provide the necessary level of reconfigurability, low costs, and ease of setup/control offered by modular and efficient USB-based digital attenuators.

 

  • Covering a frequency range of 500 MHz to 6000 MHz, the 64x8 Digital Matrix Attenuator enables control of 64 input signals to 8 outputs while managing the signal power for every path
  • Each of the 512 connections are capable of providing up to 90 dB of attenuation with a step size of 0.1 dB.
  • The attenuators are easily programmed for fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps, and/or fading profiles directly from the included Graphical User Interface (GUI).

 

Now handover and MIMO testing of complex 5G, WiFi, and Satcom antenna modules is easier, quicker and more cost effective than ever. Learn more about our family of products here:

Vaunix VMA-Q64X8S Handover Test

VMA-Q64X8SE

Lab Brick® 64x8 Matrix Attenuator

The Vaunix Digital Attenuator Matrix Systems are easily customized, bidirectional, non-blocking test instruments. Attenuation matrixes are ideal instruments for mobile operators, Wi-Fi chip manufacturers and radio development teams testing handover and MIMO performance in research labs, product verification and development environments. The matrix attenuator allows the user to direct multiple input signals to multiple outputs while controlling the signal power on all paths.

 

The VMA-Q64X8SE Attenuator Matrix System is a rack mounted 64 input x 8 output non- blocking test instrument. The VMA-Q64X8SE provides 90 dB of attenuation control range from 500 to 6000 MHz with a step size of 0.1 dB on all 512 possible path combinations. The attenuators are easily programmable for fixed attenuation, swept attenuation ramps and fading profiles using our highly developed Windows API DLL files and Linux platforms.

 

The VMA-Q64X8SE is AC powered and controlled through a single Ethernet port on the rear of the chassis. All input and output signals are available on the front panel with SMA or optional N Type connectors.
