Averna Expands and Accelerates Cable Device Testing Using the NI Vector Signal Transceiver and LabVIEW FPGA
Author: Andy Brown, Averna Technologies
Challenge: Meeting the cable industry’s needs to properly validate, measure, and certify cable-modem termination systems (CMTSs) and customer-premises equipment (CPE) in highly realistic laboratory conditions.
Solution: Using the NI vector signal transceiver, NI LabVIEW system design software, and the LabVIEW FPGA Module to develop an FPGA-based channel emulator that simulates and synchronizes a full-featured cable network while applying a host of channel impairments to test the performance of broadband devices.
