ANECHOIC CHAMBER SIMULATOR SYSTEM
Skydel Anechoic allows users to accurately simulate real-world GNSS environments in their Anechoic Chambers. Skydel Anechoic has 32 individual RF outputs enabling the system to drive 16 dual-frequency antennas. Revolutionary features like automatic antenna mapping, automatic time delay calibration, and automatic power loss calibration are what make Skydel Anechoic the most advanced Anechoic Chamber simulator on the market today.
Skydel Anechoic was designed from the ground up for the user, by users. An easy to use software environment and thoughtful hardware supports engineers during all phases of their testing. The built-in spectrum analyzer
can be connected to any one of the 16 RF output chains through a quick connect RF connector, allowing the
user to verify the signals going to the antenna. The 48dB transmit chain amplifier and 80dB transmit chain dial
attenuator allow for complete signal control and high dynamic range. The Skydel Anechoic System cuts calibration
times from days to minutes. All aspects of the Skydel Anechoic system were made to enable better, faster, and
lower cost testing.
Automatic Antenna Mapping
Signals are automatically mapped
to the correct transmit chain
based on user specified antenna
Automatic Power Loss Calibration
Automatically calibrates the power
loss of each transmit chain.
Automatic Time Delay Calibration
Automatically calibrates the time
delay of each transmit chain.
Scalable Software-Defined Architecture
GSG Anechoic takes advantage of state-of-the-art
software defined radios (SDR) for RF up-converting while
signal IQ generation uses high performance commercialoff-the-shelf (COTS) graphics-processing units (GPU). The
ability to generate the IQ data in software (using the GPU)
as opposed to hardware (FPGA) significantly reduces the
cost while maximizing capability, value and time to market.
