GNSS simulator handles simultaneously multiple frequency bands for multiple antennas

September 26, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The R&S SMW200A GNSS simulator can be extended to up to four RF outputs and allows GNSS signals to be simulated simultaneously in multiple frequency bands for multiple antennas.

Rohde & Schwarz claims it is the only instrument on the market that can internally simulate a complex interference environment in parallel with GNSS signals. All signals (GNSS, noise and interference) are generated directly in the instrument. To test multifrequency and multi-antenna systems, users now have access to 72 GNSS channels that can be assigned to up to four RF outputs. The R&S SMW200A can generate QZSS and SBAS signals as well as GPS, Glonass, Galileo and BeiDou signals. This solution enables users to quickly and easily verify the position accuracy of their receivers under realistic conditions. No external computer is needed to configure and operate the R&S SMW200A. The integrated, intuitive GUI allows users to generate GNSS scenarios quickly and easily. Thanks to the multitude of instrument options, the solution can be optimally adapted to individual user requirements.
