Averna Introduces 500 Megahertz Wideband RF Record and Playback for Advanced GNSS Applications

Averna, a global Test & Quality Solutions provider, recently announced a wideband RF Record and Playback platform. The RP-6500 records and plays back up to 500 megahertz of RF spectrum – from 9 kilohertz to 6 gigahertz – making it ideal for multi-constellation GNSS applications. The system can also capture other signals such as Wi-Fi, GNSS, V2x, spectrum sharing, and cellular applications.

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

Preloaded with RF Studio, powerful RF record/playback software for capturing real-world RF spectrum, including GNSS, radio, video & location data. The RP-6500 Series is designed to let 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.

Key Features and Benefits:
• Easy-to-use RF Studio user interface
• 500 megahertz wide instantaneous bandwidth
• Covers most common wireless protocols from 9 kilohertz to 6 gigahertz
• High dynamic range (14 bits, ~ 86 dB)
• Form factor allows rack mounting or car trunk portability
• 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.”

The Averna RP-6500 is available now to customers worldwide.
