Radar signal analysis applications require highly specialized test equipment to model and test transmitted or received signals. Secondary surveillance radar is a type of radar that is often used for air traf c control (ATC) applications as well as identify friend or foe (IFF) military applications. For these applications custom RF test racks are assembled for the specialty testing performed on this [...]
Before there is widespread adoption of any 5G technologies, there comes the need for extensive research and development of the networking and signal management approaches that will enable them. Currently considered one of the leading enablers, small-cell, millimeter-wave, and massive Multi-input Multi-output (MIMO) systems, are creating the need for network architects to not only know the comprehensive [...]
Vaunix Technology Corporation recently produced an insightful technical brief discussing handover/handoff testing using USB-based digital attenuators for complex and scalable fading simulations.
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. [...]
