Fully Functional Channel Emulation Single Box Design Complete RF Isolation
Azimuth Systems, Inc. introduces its ACE 400WB comprehensive channel emulator platform for testing multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) and single-input-single-output (SISO) WiMAX systems. It is a purpose-built, single box system that provides sophisticated channel modeling capabilities in a complete test automation platform, enabling real-time performance testing of MIMO devices, streamlining the testing of WiMAX chipsets, clients and infrastructure. The device emulates multipath characteristics with channel correlation to determine the effect of multi-channel RF interactions. The advanced signal processing technology is integrated in a platform that automates device control, traffic capture and results display to deliver repeatable and fast results. It can be used to test and debug MIMO algorithms, optimize the performance of WiMAX devices in MIMO and SISO environments, streamline QA processes and run competitive performance benchmark tests.
