Averna’s 500-Mhz wideband platform tests advanced GNSS applications

February 16, 2018  - By

Averna is offering a wideband RF record and playback platform. The RP-6500 records and plays back up to 500 MHz of RF spectrum — from 9 kHz to 6 GHz — to test  multi-constellation GNSS applications, the company said. The system can also capture other signals such as Wi-Fi, V2x, spectrum sharing and cellular applications.

The robust system fits into a car trunk for driving/recording applications, and syncs with both a GPS and Averna’s DriveView software for synchronized location and video capture that is time-aligned.

Preloaded with RF Studio, a state-of-the-art workflow tool, the RP-6500 Series lets users quickly set up recordings, add contextual data, visualize weak signals and analyze the collected RF environments to validate and fine-tune designs and products.

“The RP-6500 is a complete RF Record and Playback platform–it’s been designed and built from the ground up to be all-in-one,” said Alex Pelland, product line manager at Averna. “The hardware ticks all the boxes for serious users, and we’ve bundled it with RF Studio, so that all users can achieve simple configuration, file management, and visualization as well.”
