Faultless data transfer despite interference
With the available frequencies increasingly used up, the communication industry faces some big challenges: Demand is growing for wireless communication systems that work faultlessly even when coexistence and interference problems arise. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS has developed digitally tunable radio frequency filters (RF filters) that provide dynamic access to a variety of frequencies without any delay.
Extending off-air satellite simulation to multiple terminals
AtlanTecRF has launched the new Multi-Path Satellite Simulator System (the MSS Series). The MSS Systems are designed to ‘talk’ to two ground-based or mobile satcom stations, simultaneously, thereby replicating for test purposes, the satellite link while remaining off-air. Each system consists of three parts, a base control unit and two weatherproof transponders each of which can be orientated to connect with a system under t...
