The Ranatec RI 700 is a wideband Carrier-to-Noise Generator with 8 separate channels. Noise spectral density can be set to any value between -174 and -93 dBm/Hz in 0.5 dB steps.
Each channel has a separate noise source which means that all channels are uncorrelated. Each channel has an internal combiner that is used to add the controlled noise to the user carrier. The SNR of the user carrier can then be controlled by adding a suitable amount of noise. By adding the SNR option, the carrier-to-noise ratio is accurately calibrated and monitored. The user has the possibility to enter C/N0 through the web interface.
As a default, the instrument is controlled through a web interface. The output spectral density of each channel is set in any web browser, totally independent of the operating system. This feature also gives the possibility to control the instrument over the internet, independent of geographical position. If you need to control it in another way, there are options available for all standard communication interfaces.
