CT712 LANforge RF Noise Generator and RADAR Simulator

The CT712 RF Noise generator and RADAR Simulator is used for WiFi testing. The CT712 uses the HackRF software defined radio to generate micro-second precision bursts of RF Noise. The burst width, burst spacing, and number of bursts are configurable. This can simulate most RADAR bursts and so be used for DFS testing.

In addition, this unit can create constant RF Noise to enable testing CCA features in WiFi equipment (you will probably need an RF attenuator as well for CCA testing). It is a test tool, and should be used in an RF Isolation chamber or other area where you will not interfere with legitimate RF Equipment or RADAR devices.

The CT712 is controlled by the LANforge software suite, which includes a GUI management tool as well as CLI interface for automated scripting. It may also be driven directly from the Linux command line with a python script. If you do not already have a LANforge Linux system, then you can install LANforge on your own Linux hardware, or you can purchase an additional LANforge Linux system. Contact your sales representative if you have any questions.

The CT712 has no moving parts and will fit into a small travel bag or briefcase for easy portability.

Software Features

RF Noise Generator and RADAR signal emulator.
In addition to emulating bursty RF noise and RADAR patterns, this tool has proven useful for testing CCA when paired with a variable attenuator and configured for constant noise transmission.

The configurables include:

Pulse Width
This specifies the duration (in micro-seconds) for the transmitter to be enabled. The user may type in a specific value, and the LANforge-GUI has pre-set values in pull-down menus for common FCC and ETSI radar patterns. The current hardware supports a minimum pulse width size of 1us.

Pulse Interval
This specifies the time (in micro-seconds) between starting to generate a pulse. This is also known as "Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI)". The user may type in a specific value, and the LANforge-GUI has pre-set values in pull-down menus for common FCC and ETSI radar patterns.

Pulse Count
This specifies how many pulses to generate before pausing for "sweep time". If you want to pulse continuously, set Sweep Time to zero. This is also known as "Pulses per Burst (PPB)". The user may type in a specific value, and the LANforge-GUI has pre-set values in pull-down menus for common FCC and ETSI radar patterns.

Sweep Time
This specifies how long to pause (in micro-seconds) between pulse bursts. This emulates Radar sweep time. Set this value to zero for continuous pulsing.

Frequency
Select the frequency on which to generate the RF signal.

Hardware Specification

  1. RF Noise generator and RADAR signal Emulator.
  2. Includes HackRF Software Defined Radio and USB adapter.
  3. Includes SMA Antenna.
  4. SMA cables for conductive testing are available but not included in base price.
  5. Software licenses for this feature are included with purchase.

List Price: $1,995     List Price with 1 Year support (17%): $2,334
