Now Leti researchers can test wireless connections without having to perform costly and time-consuming on-site tests. Leti (via the IRT NanoElec research institute) has recently acquired a wireless channel emulator—the first of its kind in France. It lets engineers easily test the effects of electromagnetic environments (like multipath channels) and electromagnetic disruptors on the performance of wireless connections.
Thanks to this new system, smartphones, tablets, and other connected devices can be tested in anechoic chambers to ensure maximum connectivity for business and consumer applications.
Leti researchers have already implemented exclusive models for wearable equipment, harsh industrial environments, airplane cabins, and wireless car sensors. They could also develop specific models for other applications.
