publication on August 15, 2008, at 9 am. (CEST+1) EB, specialized
in demanding embedded software and hardware solutions for the wireless
and automotive industries, extends its radio channel testing solutions
to cover the HF frequency area, thus supporting testing of applications
from 1MHz up to 6GHz.
With 20 years of experience and solid
expertise in specialized radio channel testing solutions for wireless
applications, EB has truly proved to master the radio channel. Today,
EB's offering enables air interface testing from wireless cellular technologies
to demanding defense and aerospace solutions.
of the success story of the EB Propsim channel emulator products was
in defense applications in the 90's. Today, we have further expanded
our offering to this specific customer segment by adding support for
radio channel emulation in the HF frequency area to EB Propsim FE,'
says Dr. Hannu Hakalahti, Senior Vice President of EB. 'We are proud
to use our accumulated expertise of the radio channel phenomena and
serve our customers in the most demanding applications.'
Propsim FE is the only professional test solution on the market for
radio channel emulation in the 1-30 MHz frequency area, enabling realistic
and repeatable fading and interference test conditions for physical
layer testing in the laboratory. It is a scalable and modular test solution
that can be easily tailored to meet different testing needs. The new
HF option is aligned with this strategy; either the HF or RF (25 to
2705 MHz) frequency range can be selected for each of 1 to 4 channels.
The air interface testing challenges in the HF frequency area
include emulation of phenomena such as long delays and effects caused
by the ionosphere. EB Propsim FE is delivered with the standard HF channel
models defined by ITU-R. The easy to use graphical user interface enables
the creation and edition of channel models. In addition, models can
be imported from third party software.
EB is the global technology
leader in test tools for measuring, modeling and emulating the radio
channel environments of emerging and future generations of wireless
