Flexible Test & Measurement Platform

SDR flexible enough for testing equipment related to
autonomous vehicles, 5G, and military/aerospace electronics

Host systems, custom designs, and full integration support available

One flexible platform across ever changing protocols and products
Flexible, cost effective products that reduce system cost, size, and complexity
Our multi-functional SDR platforms are ideal for RF Test & Measurement systems. Incorporating a flexible, multi-transmit & multi-receive channel solution for use in testing equipment related to automatic testing, autonomous vehicles, 5G, and testing of military, aerospace and telecommunications systems, and more. These systems can be used for everything from simulation to full testing suites while extending capabilities to meet new requirements and reducing development time and therefore time to market.

SDRs provide a high level of configuration and flexibility, allowing the system to be patched, updated, or completely changed to address the latest protocols. This helps in meeting the throughput needs, integrating with other devices, timelines, and development costs associated with many test and measurement requirements.

Since applications are written entirely in software, they can easily be extended to support real time responses and testing. SDRs are useful during R&D when evaluating the performance and impact of different designs and configuration decisions, and quantifying its impact on observed device performance.
