RAIN Xplorer Four Port RF Switch

New module supporting advanced automated reader testing

The Four-Port RF Switch is an accessory unit to switch RF signals of up to four ports to a common port for testing of multi-port readers. The multiplexing is controlled from the GUI or API via the CISC RAIN Xplorer unit.

Key features

  • 1 x 4 multiplexer
  • Bi-directional
  • Full compatibility with the CISC RAIN Xplorer
  • Frequency range 700 –1200 MHz (design based on 0.1 GHz to 3.8 GHz switch)
  • Supplied with GPIO cable; length 1.5 m

Advantages

  • The Four Port RF Switch can be used in performance testing of reader with up to four ports.
  • It multiplex signals from reader ports into the common port which is connected to the CISC RF Sensor Module and optionally other accessories, such as the CISC Phase Shifter and CISC Impedance Emulator.
  • The Four Port RF Switch multiplexes four antennas to the common port.
  • The Four Port RF Switch is supplied with a D-sub GPIO cable. It is powered from the CISC RAIN Xplorer.
  • A special need for such kind of testing is required in production and additionally to read tests for lab-like receiver performance, protocol conformance, and endurance tests.

TIPP Testing

The Four Port RF Switch multiplexes four antennas to the common port. It is used with a circulator. An example application is the TIPP testing. In this application, the CISC RAIN Xplorer is used as a monostatic four port tester to measure performance of tags at various angles.

Reader Performance Testing

The Four Port RF Switch can be used in performance testing of reader with up to four ports. It multiplex signals from reader ports into the common port which is connected to the CISC RF Sensor Module and optionally other accessories, such as the CISC Phase Shifter and CISC Impedance Emulator.
