ACE9600 Image

The ACE9600 from dBm Corporation is a Satellite Link Emulator with a center frequency of 1125 MHz and a 1 dB RF bandwidth of 600 MHz. This advanced channel emulator can be configured with up to four independent simplex channels per chassis and has a maximum delay of 700 ms per channel. It has an in-band spurious suppression of -55 dBc and a VSWR of less than 1.5:1. The emulator has a delay slew rate of 0.1 ps/sec up to 2 us/ms and an relative accuracy of +/- 1 ns plus 10MHz reference. It has an attenuation range of 0-70 dB and a resolution of 0.10 dB. The emulator has a phase offset range of 0-359.9 degrees and an accuracy of less than 1 degree. It requires a primary power supply voltage of 85-264 VAC and has a maximum power consumption of 470 VA. This satellite link emulator features removable non-volatile memory to meet military/classified laboratory requirements and RF link emulation such as delay, Doppler, path loss, and phase shift frequency hopping. It weighs up to 50 lbs (4-channel) and measures 17 x 7.0 x 21 inches (W x H x D). The emulator is ideal for applications such as Earth terminal testing, satellite payload testing, satellite system integration test beds, mobile transceiver testing, UHF/VHF radio testing, UAV testing, and atmospheric scintillation (time dispersive delay) modeling.
