EMCenter Modular RF Platform Model 7000-001

ETS-Lindgren's EMCenter is a modular RF platform consisting of an integrated micro-controller, modular chassis, and a selection of optional plug-in card modules. It can be used to perform a variety of RF measurement applications.

ETS-Lindgren's EMCenter is a modular RF platform consisting of an integrated micro-controller, modular chassis, and a selection of optional plug-in card modules. It can be used to perform a variety of RF measurement applications.

The EMCenters compact footprint reduces system complexity and provides centralized control and accessibility. The 3U 19-inch form factor for the seven slot models can accept up to seven optional instrument card modules. Both the 7 slot and 2 slot models can come with GPIB (IEEE 48). The two slot models use the same form factor as the seven slot and can accept two instrument card modules for less complicated applications. Each individual card module is a miniaturized instrument that has been optimized for RF measurement. Card modules are easily inserted into the chassis rear card bay, and are recognized when the system initializes. Multiple EMCenters can be linked together to form scalable systems.

EMCenters can be manually controlled through a series of menus accessed on the front panel TFT touch screen. The platforms embedded Linux-based software is stored in flash memory to simplify version upgrades.

For automated testing, EMCenter can be controlled with TILE!, EMQuest and other PC compatible RF software packages. Using LAN, USB and the optional GPIB IEEE-488 I/O, the software can control external receivers, amplifiers, power meters, antennas, and other equipment in the test loop.

Typical EMCenter applications include EMC and wireless measurements, E-field monitoring, and other RF applications.
