AIE-W5ER is an air interface emulator with 9 connectors for Wi-Fi access points for the emulation of wireless networks. The device is designed in 50 ohms technology. The large operation frequency range from 1800 MHz up to 6400 MHz makes the device suitable for emulations of 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz also 5G (FR1) Wi-Fi networks like 802.11p for V2X applications. The setting range of the path attenuations between the connectors for the access points is 0 … 95.25 dB adjustable in 0.25 dB steps.
The step attenuators of the AIE-W5ER are based on wear-free semiconductors. The device has LAN and USB remote interface. A integrated web interface allows an easy remote control without the effort of programming.
Via the TRIGGER IO interface of the device preloaded delay values are taken synchronous with a fed in trigger pulse. The rapid adoption of the delay values takes place via the hardware in the microsecond range.
In master mode the device generates a trigger pulse. This allows the delay settings of other devices to be synchronized in the network.
AIE-W5ER has a 19“ design with a height of 3 U for the integration into 19“ system racks. As well AIE-W5ER is suitable as table top device for laboratory use.
With help of AIE-W5ER reproductible emulations of air interfaces between Wi-Fi access points in research, product development, product validation and production are done.
