AIAD-8+-6G-190dB, Air Interface Adapter
With the AIAD-8+-6G-190dB Air Interface Adapter, tests can be performed in the range from 500 MHz to 6000 MHz. Ring system with 8 coupled inputs and outputs by 190 dB attenuators and 2 source connections per port (2x 8 ports). The core of the AIAD-8+ consists of a fully meshed network. This allows connections from RF ports to all other RF ports via separate signal paths. Programmable attenuators in each path emulate the signal attenuation to any neighboring cells.
Modern radio technologies such as IoT, TETRA, Smart Metering, MIMO, Car to Car, Military Communication and many more require ever new test solutions. Not so much the frequency range, but the classical structure in mobile communication from the sender side to the receiver side has been abolished. Modern communication takes place not only vertically, but also horizontally. This enables a direct connection between different terminals without a network infrastructure. Thus applications, products or terminal devices of this type partly generate their own networks, expand the network or forward information from neighboring network subscribers.
