This specialized subsystem is used to simulate the connectivity between a mobile unit running along a line of 3 base stations spaced from 250 to 1000 meters apart.
The test subsystem is able to simulate the variation of the RF signal from the base stations reaching the mobile (as well as the signal from the mobile reaching the base stations) when the mobile is moving at speeds of up to 250 km/h. Several variations of this have been developed and produced.
The simulator attenuates the simulated Base Station signal through three independent attenuators, then combines the signals. Each attenuator has a dynamic range of 60 dB in 1 dB steps. The operation of the unit is via a RS232 interface, ASCII commands can input parameters into the controller. Upon receiving a trigger the controller executes the program to simulate the link loss to all three Base stations as seen from the mobile transceiver.
