IZT DCS3020 Fading Channel Simulator

IZT DCS3020 (discontinued)

Fading Channel Simulator

The Channel Simulator IZT DCS3020 has been specially designed for simulation of bidirectional satellite links. The large processing power of the IZT DCS3020 also supports fading models applicable to terrestrial wireless links.

  • slow fading simulation for handheld applications
  • file streaming for repeatable testing
  • accurate and realistic carrier-to-noise and level profiles
  • optional second module

The Channel Simulator IZT DCS3020 is especially suitable for realistic and repeatable simulation of the comparatively very slow fading that occurs when using handheld devices.The IZT DCS3020 is the perfect satellite channel simulator for broadcast services or two-way communication.Satellite links subject the signals to various impairments, for example thermal noise, phase noise, non-linearity, interference, scintillation and fading.

The IZT DCS3020 has the capability to simulate these effects for the forward and return link. One typical example for a satellite link is the combination of DVB-S2 for the forward link and DVB-RCS for the return link. The IZT DCS3020 can also be equipped with other channel models to simulate terrestrial channels.

This product has been developed in cooperation with Fraunhofer IIS.
