Rohde & Schwarz has won a contract to supply test equipment for the Electronic Engineering IoT living laboratory at the University of Aalborg. The IoT living lab is central to the University’s teaching of Electronic Engineering, and used for experimental Internet of things (IoT) projects by technical staff, MEng and masters students.
Professor Preben Mogensen, Head of Wireless Communication Networks Section (WCN) at the University of Aalborg, commented: “We have made a considerable investment in our main IoT laboratory and created a facility that we are truly proud of, which fully meets the expectations of future Internet of things (IoT) experimental projects in close relation with industry partners. Rohde & Schwarz stood out as delivering exceptional quality, service and measurement performance. Its test solutions are smart and connected, with specific features to help our teaching staff guide the learning experience.”
The university has equipped the laboratory with a range of instruments including the R&S RTO2034, 4ch. 3GHz oscilloscope, 2 x R&S RT-ZVC04 battery lifetime power analysers, R&S CMW-Z10 shielded boxes, R&S CMW run test sequencer software, R&S TSME6 radio scanner, 38 GHz downconverter and a 6GHz R&S SMBV100B vector signal generator that offers in-depth and advanced IoT test applications across current and future IoT technologies.
It has also implemented Rohde & Schwarz’ R&S CMW290 and CMWrun test sequencer software solution in conjunction with R&S RT-ZVC04 power analyser to streamline real-time power management cycle C-IoT device tests. This software automates and displays power distribution vs. time on C-IoT devices in realistic operational mode.
