Averna introduces 500-MHz RF record and playback for GNSS

Feb. 17, 2018

Montreal, Canada. Averna has announced a wideband RF Record and Playback platform. The RP-6500 records and plays back up to 500 MHz of RF spectrum—from 9 kHz to 6 GHz—making it suitable for multi-constellation GNSS applications. The system can also capture other signals such as those found in Wi-Fi, GNSS, V2X, spectrum-sharing, and cellular applications.

The robust system fits into a car trunk for driving/recording applications, and it syncs with both a GPS and Averna’s DriveView software, for synchronized location and video capture that is time-aligned with your data.

The platform is preloaded with RF Studio record/playback software for capturing real-world RF spectrum, including GNSS, radio, video, and location data. A state-of-the-art workflow tool, the RP-6500 Series lets you quickly set up your recordings, add contextual data, visualize weak signals, and analyze your collected RF environments to validate and fine-tune your designs and products.

The platform features the easy-to-use RF Studio user interface, a 500-MHz-wide instantaneous bandwidth, and high dynamic range (14 bits, ~86 dB). It covers most common wireless protocols from 9 kHz to 6 GHz. Its form factor allows rack mounting or car-trunk portability. It supports time-synchronized capture of RF signals and messages.

“The RP-6500 is a complete RF record and playback platform—it’s been designed and built from the ground up to be all-in-one,” said Alex Pelland, product line manager at Averna. “The hardware ticks all the boxes for serious users, and we’ve bundled it with RF Studio, so that all users can achieve simple configuration, file management, and visualization as well.”
