The SE-5315 Quad-Band RF Exciter & Test Signal Simulator
combines a state-of-the-art high data rate digital wideband
waveform modulator with a high performance radio frequency
(RF) upconverter to produce transmission-ready signals in
the Baseband, Upper L-, Lower L-, Range S-, Satellite Uplink S-, Satellite Downlink
S-, and Range C1- (4 GHz) and Extended C2- (5 GHz) frequency bands. Alternately, C1- and C2- can be provided as P1- and P2-Bands for sites using CIF.
An advanced, digital implementation
provides for the small form and fit while fully satisfying
applications requiring ruggedized packaging, minimum power
consumption, and high spectral purity. The design supports
a multitude of complex digital formats for Satellite and
ARTM Range use.
Data generation, coding, and modulation can be driven from
a variety of external digital inputs or via internal pattern
and waveform generation sources. Dual data processing paths
are included to allow creation of independent I and Q streams.
The practical design of the SE-5315 Exciter supports link
test and verification applications. A single SE-5315 can
replace a BERT, waveform generator, vector modulator, upconverter,
amplifier, noise source, attenuators, power meter, spectrum
analyzer and a frequency converter. Combining these capabilities
in one small, simple-to-use unit allows quick and accurate
setup and testing without in-depth system knowledge.
An optional second, independently tunable modulated RF
output may be used effectively with dual-polarized systems.
Output power levels are adjustable from +10 dBm to -80 dBm
in 0.1 dB steps for fine control and fade profiling.
Up to 32 Configuration Profiles can be stored with user-defined
link names and recalled with a single command, simplifying
fast and accurate configuration changes .
Configurable front panel BNC connectors provide operators
with ready access to internal operating signals. The SE-5315
can also optionally support a station clock input for external
The SE-5315 includes support for user-configurable Doppler
simulation and satellite acquisition automation functions.
Additionally, up to 32 Configuration Profiles can be stored
with user-defined link names and recalled with a single command,
simplifying fast and accurate configuration changes.
The firmware-intensive implementation of the SE-5315 readily
accommodates custom features and signal processing tasks.
Using the latest generation digital signal processing techniques
allows upgrades via firmware changes, even for previously
The SE-5315 RF Exciter is available in a standard 1U 19
inch rack mountable chassis or as PCI cards and API for integration
into other systems. The Chassis version is not based on a
PC platform, avoiding the requirement for 3rd Party Operating
Systems and hard drives and reducing the need for system
patches and IT security concerns.
