Averna RF Studio Supports Recorder Synchronization

February 27, 2014. Averna, a developer of test solutions and services for communications and electronics device-makers, has announced a new software release for RF Studio, featuring the ability to synchronize four channels within 1 ns, among other enhancements.

For multiband applications like precision GPS—with signals found simultaneously in L1, L2, and L5 bands—multiple phase-coherent RF-channel support is a crucial requirement, especially for development and characterization of RF receivers and the environments they are designed to operate in.

Averna’s RF Studio enables users to make trouble-free RF recordings, easily manage collected data, and play back their real-world radio, video, or navigation signals for in-depth, repeatable analysis and testing. RF Studio is available for both cost-effective and high-performance platforms, and it includes smart RF-chain configuration, signal templates, a handy Noise Figure function to optimize gain, and tools to visualize and analyze captured signals.

New RF studio highlights include multi-recorder and player PXI synchronization that supports four or more phase-coherent RF channels as well as numerous usability and productivity enhancements. DriveView improvements bring new map features and support to the NI USRP software-defined radio platform (beta).
