GNSS Production Tester offers diverse characterization functions.

Press Release Summary:




Offering functionality targeting production tests regarding GNSS signal reception and connection between antenna and GNSS chipset, R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator with R&S SMBV-P101 package simulates separate satellites for GPS, Glonass, BeiDou, and Galileo navigation standards in L1/E1 band. Satellites, each with dynamic range of 34 dB, can be activated individually, and on-the-fly level changes enable simultaneous and independent sensitivity tests for each navigation system.



Original Press Release:



Fast Production Tests for GNSS Solutions with New Production Tester from Rohde & Schwarz



Rohde & Schwarz designed its GNSS simulator for the R&S SMBV100A with a focus on production testing of GNSS receivers. The fast GNSS production tester supports the GPS, Glonass, BeiDou and Galileo satellite systems and includes a wealth of additional test functions for characterizing GNSS chipsets and modules.



Munich — Rohde & Schwarz now offers a new, speed-optimized production tester – the R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator equipped with the R&S SMBV-P101 package. During production testing of modules and receivers for satellite-based communications, the basic GNSS signal reception and the connection between the antenna and GNSS chipset need to be checked.



The GNSS production tester simulates separate satellites for the GPS, Glonass, BeiDou and Galileo navigation standards in the L1/E1 band specifically for these production tests.



The four satellites can be activated individually, each with a high dynamic range of 34 dB. Level changes can be made on the fly without interrupting the signal, enabling users to simultaneously perform independent sensitivity tests for each navigation system. The 1 pps or 10 pps GNSS marker allows exact time synchronization between the tester and the DUT. Pure, level-stable CW signals can also be generated to calibrate the test setup or to simulate interferers.



The R&S SMBV-P101 option additionally offers test functions for efficient characterization of GNSS chipsets. As a result, a receiver's ability to handle high movement dynamics can be verified quickly and cost-effectively. To do this, users can access both predefined and user-defined Doppler profiles, from which the R&S SMBV100A automatically generates the appropriate satellite signal.



The R&S SMBV-P101 GNSS production tester package for the R&S SMBV100A is now available from Rohde & Schwarz. For more information, visit www.rohde-schwarz.com/ad/press/smbv-p101.
