LXI/VXI

3 MHZ-40 GHZ WITH AMPLITUDE, FREQUENCY, PULSE AND DIGITAL MODULATION

Each RF source allows easy signal creation specific to complex automated test equipment (ATE), communications network testing and electromagnetic environment simulation.

Our LXI-compatible Ethernet configuration includes an intuitive, web-based interface to ensure easy, out-of-the-box functionality, as well as remote operation from anywhere on the network. This is automation made easy.

  • AM, FM, Pulse, I/Q, MSK, PSK, BPSK, QPSK, OQPSK, DQPSK, 8PSK, 16PSK, QAM: 4, 16, 32, 64, 256 and user-defined modulation schemes
  • Supports external modulation inputs
  • Available in LXI or VXI formats

Synthetic Stimulus Instrument

Textron Systems' -150 SSI is the next-generation SSI (Synthetic Stimulus Instrument). The -150 SSI is a phase-coherent, wide-band direct-digital synthesizer (DDS), which provides 500 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth to enable threat generation of today’s most complex emitters. The two modes of operation allow users to generate 2 MPPS in radar mode or 20 simultaneous communication emitters per -150 SSI, creating a dense, complex and realistic environment for test and evaluation.

  • Signal generation for A2PATS® (up to 8 SSIs per port)
  • Can generate up to 4 continuous wave signals simultaneously
  • Controls all signals in amplitude, phase and time
  • 1.1 GHZ/us wideband chirp option

Additional Information:

  • 500 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth
  • Multi-signal capability from a single -150 SSI:
    • Radar mode - 4 simultaneous CW plus pulsed emitters in a 500MHz bandwidth
    • Communications mode - 20 simultaneous communications emitters
  • Ultra-wide frequency range .5 MHZ – 40 GHz in a single -150 SSI
  • Superior spectral fidelity
  • Accommodates all A2PATS system features
  • Backward-compatible to existing A2PATS installations
  • Commercially available with implementation software for industry and military applications
